Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds Announce Manchester Heaton Park Gig in 2019

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds have announced they will be playing a huge gig at Manchester's Heaton Park next summer.

The gig will take place on Friday 7 June and the former Oasis man will be supported by Doves, who are returning from a nine year hiatus.

The show will be Noel's first at the venue in 10 years. The last time he played at the park was with Oasis in 2009, just a few months before he left the band.

A decade on, and he must be pleased with how he has fared with his solo ventures.

His most recent album, Who Built the Moon, received a Mercury nomination and in October, he scooped the Q Awards for for 'best solo artist' and 'outstanding contribution to music'.

The Heaton Park homecoming gig will be Noel's largest open-air gig of 2019.

The show will also mark 10 years since Doves' Kingdom of Rust album - the most recent material the bad have produced.

Austin-based rock band White Denim will also provide support and further special guests are yet to be announced. So it's going to be a proper all-.dayer.

If it's anything like the three Oasis gigs there 10 years previous, then it promises to be an absolute belter. A day filled with anthemic classics, sweaty hugs and hot cups of piss.

Liam Gallagher managed to emulate those heady/pissy days of 2009 this summer, as 50,000 packed out Manchester's Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground.

The show marked the zenith of his solo career, having released his well-received first solo record As You Were in October 2017.

Clearly, there remains a huge appetite for the Gallagher brothers' musical offerings, particularly in their home city - whether together or apart.

If Liam's solo gig this summer is anything to go by, then you'll want to jump on these Noel tickets as quick as you can, as they're unlikely to be around for long.

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10am on Friday.
