Former Oasis man admits: 'I don't like that venue'

Noel Gallagher has said he doesn’t understand why bands play at London’s Roundhouse – just days after rounding off his own UK and Ireland tour at the Camden venue.

Writing a blog for the Huffington Post, the High Flying Birds man admitted he didn’t like the venue and claimed he’d never seen a good gig there.

He commented:

Lord knows why anyone would play there. I’ve been to plenty of gigs there – can’t recall ever seeing a good one yet. Dunno what it is. Maybe ’cause it’s round and not an actual house? Dunno.

The former Oasis leader also revealed that the band partied “hard” after the Roundhouse gig, so “all was not lost”.

Gallagher added that his gig at the HMV Forum the previous night (October 30) was “great” and “like the old days” of Oasis, who played at the venue in 1994.

Meanwhile, his other show in the capital at the Hammersmith Apollo (29) was “easy, maybe a little too easy”.

Noel Gallagher is set to hit the road again next year with his biggest solo dates yet, kicking off at Manchester’s MEN Arena on Feburary 13 before visiting Belfast, Dublin, Newcastle, Glasgow, London and Birmingham.
