Noel Gallagher hit by chest infection while on tour in Europe

High Flying Birds man refuses to pull any of his shows

Noel Gallagher has revealed that he has been suffering with a chest infection on his current tour.

The former Oasis man, who recently wrapped up a series of shows in the UK, said he became ill during the early part of the tour but it got worse at a recent show in Paris.

Writing a post on his official website noelgallagher.com, entitled ‘Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere Vol 3: The Good, The Bad And The Bubbly’, he stated: ”Paris in the spring is quite frankly… well just beautiful. Love that town. The sun was out. It was warm… all I’m missing is my girl. The gig was great too. Bit of a comedown from all the razzmatazz of the big shows in the UK. Great crowd… some people actually flew in from The Lebanon especially for it, which was nice. Still got this bloody cold. It’s starting to feel more like a chest infection now though. It’s beginning to piss me off. Good job Nancy is coming to Milan with some antibiotics… gotta clear this shit up once and for all.”

Despite struggling with the infection he has refused to pull any tour dates and last performed a show in Milan on Saturday night (March 14).

He added: ”The gig was amazing, the kind of gig you’d never want to end. Easily my favourite so far. I would go into greater detail but I’ll freely admit I’m suffering with a raging hangover.

”Nancy did arrive with the medication but she was cracking foxy and we somehow managed to get roaring drunk instead. I guess the meds can wait until tomorrow eh? I’m fucked… can’t believe I now have to go and do some live Italian TV?! Keep it livid yeah? Onwards.”

Gallagher’s latest comments come after Liam Gallagher recently posted a photo of himself holding a backstage pass to one of his brother Noel’s concerts.

The band originally split in 2009 with rumours of a reunion intensifying recently following the break-up of Liam’s Beady Eye project.

Noel has made no mention of his brother in any of his postings. He is due to perform at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany tonight (March 16)
