Noel Gallagher announces first post-Oasis solo gigs
Plus Arctic Monkeys, Them Crooked Vultures for Teenage Cancer Trust gigs
Noel Gallagher is set to play his first post-Oasis gigs in March, for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The guitarist will join Arctic Monkeys, Them Crooked Vultures, a reformed Suede, The Who, Depeche Mode and JLS on the line-ups for the charity gigs. They will take place at the London Royal Albert Hall from February 17.
Gallagher will play two gigs at the venue, on March 25 and 26. The Who's Roger Daltrey, whose band play their gig for the series on March 30, told NME.COM that the shows would be the guitarist's only live dates of 2010. For the rest of the line-up dates see below.
Speaking about the gigs in an interview for ESPN - which you can watch below - Gallagher said his sets would feature "all the golden oldies". He added that he's currently "taking a bit of time out" from the music scene.
It was announced last month that Suede would be reforming for their Teenage Cancer Trust show – without original guitarist Bernard Butler.
In addition to the gigs, a comedy night will take place at the venue as part of the series on March 23. The Mighty Boosh's Noel Fielding, Jimmy Carr and Rhod Gilbert will appear.
Tickets for all the shows go on sale at 9am (GMT) on Friday (February 5). See Teenagecancertrust.com for more information.
