Noel Gallagher says crowds in the north of the UK are better than in the south

Ex-Oasis man recently completed an arena tour of the country

Noel Gallagher has said that his gigs in the north of the UK are better than those in the south of the country.

Writing on Huffington Post, he discussed his recent gigs and crowds in Glasgow and Manchester, and said they were superior to his London show.

“Manchester you were the bollocks. I couldn’t split the gigs between you and Glasgow and that’s the highest compliment I can pay any set of fans. Very special… if Carlsberg did Mondays and all that!” he commented. “Which brings me to Tuesday… London. The 02… on a Tuesday… in London. It was probably great… it usually is. But coming after Glasgow/Manchester I’m afraid a Tuesday night in London isn’t gonna cut it somehow. There’s not much more to say about it really. Hit the north!”

Meanwhile, Gallagher recently announced plans for a ‘secret’ London gig. The show will take place on March 27 at a mystery location in southeast London, the day before he plays at London’s Royal Albert Hall for the Teenage Cancer Trust. The gig was announced via Gallagher’s Twitter account, with a message reading:

In Manchester Noel Gallagher was joined onstage by Johnny Marr, with the pair performing ‘Ballad Of The Mighty I’ together during the encore. The song features on Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ second album, the recently released ‘Chasing Yesterday’. “When Johnny appeared the roar was unbelievable. He very nearly brought the house down!” wrote Gallagher of the guest spot. “A special moment for everyone.”

Gallagher’s tour has seem him play a number of Oasis songs, including ‘Fade Away’, ‘Champagne Supernova’, ‘Digsy’s Dinner’, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ and ‘The Masterplan’.
