Noel Gallagher teams up with The Coral in London

Surprise Oasis appearance launches Electric Proms 07

The Coral opened the 2007 BBC Electric Proms tonight (October 24) by recruiting Noel Gallagher on guitar for their performance.

Playing at the Roundhouse in London, the band got Oasis‘ leader to join them on their song ‘In The Rain’.

Introducing Gallagher, Coral frontman James Skelly simply told the crowd “one of our mates is going to play on this one”, as the Oasis man sauntered onstage and picked up his cherry red guitar.

After adding a solo to The Coral‘s song, Gallagher simply waved to the crowd as he left the stage to a humble “ta” from Skelly and loud cheers from the Roundhouse.

The band then wrapped up their set with the likes of ‘Rebecca You’ and closer ‘She’s Got A Reason’.

The Coral played:

‘Who’s Gonna Find Me’

‘She Sings The Mourning’

‘Jacqueline’

‘Fireflies’

‘Goodbye’

‘Pass It On’

‘Don’t Think You’re The First’

‘In The Rain’

‘Rebecca You’

‘Music At Night’

‘She’s Got A Reason’

The band are now set to be followed at the venue by Mark Ronson, who is promising a host of his own special guests, including Kaiser Chiefs and The Charlatans, during his headline slot.
