Noel Gallagher has announced details of what will be his final gig of the year.

Gallagher and his band High Flying Birds will conclude their 2016 touring schedule with a gig at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on September 6. A press release confirms that the show will be Gallagher’s last of 121 shows and festivals in 27 countries supporting 2015’s ‘Chasing Yesterday’ album.

It will be Gallagher’s first headline show at Brixton Academy. Tickets go on sale on Friday (June 17) at 10am.

After his tour concludes, Gallagher is expected to finish off his next album. His new record has been described as “fun” by the producer working with the former Oasis guitarist on the release.

Speaking to NME recently, Noel said that he was “halfway” into work on the record and hopes to release it next year.

Producer and electronic musician David Holmes later said that “people are going to be surprised” by the “fun” feel of the record.

“It’s going really good,” Holmes told Gigwise. “We’re a good bit into it now, we’ve got nearly five tracks done now.”

“People are going to be surprised. I think people love Noel and they’re desperate for him to make a really big, bold, uptempo beast of a record – a lot of Noel’s music is quite mid-tempo. This one is quite fun.”
