Noel Gallagher says he may retire from playing live within the next ‘ten years’

'The worst thing for me about getting older is the hangovers,' says the former Oasis man

Noel Gallagher has claimed that he is considering his retirement from live shows.

Speaking to Loaded magazine recently, the former Oasis member – who released his album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ in February, said that he could retire from playing live within the next decade.

Gallagher said: “Maybe I’ll retire from playing live, it depends how long you can be arsed. Ten years from now I don’t think I’ll be getting on a bus – it’s undignified. But I don’t think I’ll ever stop writing – as long as my brain and bones last out.”

He continued: ”I’ll just have to tailor the touring. It’s not fun being on a bus for six weeks in America. It’s fine when you’re young, but I’m almost 50.”

“The worst thing for me about getting older is the hangovers. Hangovers last for three or four days. I haven’t got the stamina for three days at Glastonbury any more, although I did that last year and it was fucking horrific. On the third day I get a bad back and all the rest of it, but on the whole, I think I’m doing all right.”

Gallagher recently concluded his UK arena tour, making a triumphant return to Manchester along the way. He was joined onstage at Manchester Arena by Johnny Marr and the pair performed ‘Ballad Of The Mighty I’ together during the encore.

Gallagher will perform on James Corden’s new US chat show ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’ shortly, with the firm date of his appearances not yet confirmed. The likes of Jessie Ware, George Ezra and Modest Mouse will also appear on the show in the upcoming weeks.

Earlier this month, Liam Gallagher posted a photo of himself holding a backstage pass to one of his brother Noel’s concerts. Gallagher posted the image to his Twitter account, followed by the caption: “Keeping it in the family… LG x”

Recently, Noel Gallagher said his younger sibling Liam should make a solo album and “put his balls on the line”.
