Bit late, seen as I did see him on Thursday and it’s now Saturday but, I’ve had a lot on, work, meeting people, eating, sleeping just haven’t had the time, so don’t go mad, don’t think anybody will because nobody cares that much.
Right, so how did the chief get on? Well, the answer is, very fucking well. The gig was amazing, a very good experience and it was £40 well spent, sorry £45. Noel gave it everything from start, to finish he was immense, didn’t miss a beat. Before I went I was quite worried about his singing, thinking it might not be strong enough for the gig, fuck me I was wrong, why did I doubt him. You could play the album, and it would sound exactly the same, right on the spot every time. The start of the gig didn’t go to well, fucking beer thrown from every angle (a lot of it went on me) also, felt some warm beer thrown on me(I fuckin’ hope it was warm beer, don’t think it was though), my mate Andy turned round and said to me “That’s warm, I don’t think that’s fuckin’ beer”. So after that happened we just thought, lets enjoy ourselves and ignore what may or may not be piss. Really good setlist, played all of his new album except for ‘stop the clocks’, would of loved to heard that one, along with ‘the good rebel’ and ‘freaky teeth'(that was brilliant). He also sprinkled that with some classic oasis songs with the likes of ‘supersonic’, ‘don’t look back in anger’ and ‘whatever’, however he left out ‘wonderwall’, would of liked to hear that one personally. Have a butchers at the setlist.

It wasn’t a big active gig with loads of jumping, pushing, moshing going on but it was hard hitting. Every song that was played almost everyone was singing along to it because they’re great songs. The closest it got to moshing was when ‘Importance of being Idle’ came on. The personal favourite for me was ‘Little by Little’, I thought it was a good oasis song, but Noel playing it live made the songs so much better, you felt like it was being sung to you. The only the songs I wish he would of played was, ‘wonderwall’, ‘The Masterplan’ and ‘Stop the clocks’, but I suppose there’s only so much time.
As always the chief was very witty with the comment “I dedicate this to the best rock ‘n’ roll star ever…….Mario Balotelli”. Then he went on to say “You know you love him….and he loves you”, Had to laugh when he said that, he’s made me go mad on Mario Balotelli, I want to become him.
Overall I thought it was a great gig, definitely going next time the chief comes round, looking forward to his new stuff with amorphous androgynous, and looking for to his new album whenever he may bring that out. The only thing that could have made this night better is if I didn’t get that ‘warm beer’ thrown over me. Check out the video below, my new favourite song.
