Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will visit the Bonus Arena in Hull this May.
One of the greatest songwriters of his generation, Noel is visiting the city as part of a short tour before heading out to Japan and South Korea. It is the only English date outside of London on this run of shows.
Noel Gallagher, who is recording new material in studios in London and LA, will be calling in at Edinburgh, Llandudno, Hull and a first time ever for Noel at London’s Palladium. It’s a chance for fans to catch Noel’s 11 piece line up in more intimate surroundings where new material, currently being recorded, is likely to get an airing.
Noel will be supported by former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes.
As a founding member of Oasis, Noel needs no introduction. The band’s first two albums – Definitely Maybe and What’s The Story Morning Glory – are revered as two of the greatest records ever released, whilst the band’s third album Be Here Now remains the fastest selling album in UK history despite being released in 1997.
As a solo artist Noel has released three albums with his High Flying Birds, releasing singles such as ‘In The Heat of the Moment’ and ‘AKA…What A Life’.
Bonus Arena is a state-of-the-art, music and events complex with a capacity of up to 3,500 people that will allow Hull to attract large corporate conferences, exhibitions and trade tours as well as major touring concerts, stand-up comedy, family shows and sporting events. The plans include the building of the new arena, alongside the rebuilding of Osborne Street car park and additional public spaces in a currently derelict area on Myton Street behind Princes Quay shopping centre. The arena is scheduled to open during the summer of 2018. The building is owned by Hull City Council and will be managed by SMG Europe, a world leader in venue management, operation and marketing with more than 220 venues worldwide, including Manchester Arena, Metro Radio Arena Newcastle, First Direct Arena Leeds, The Baths Hall and The Plowright Theatre Scunthorpe.
