“We’ve persuaded a fantastic range of world class musicians to our In Concert stage over the years and it’s great to have Noel Gallagher join us again with some unique interpretations of his songs,” BBC Radio 2’s head of music Jeff Smith said.

Meanwhile, it was recently confirmed that both Noel and Liam Gallagher will take part in an upcoming Oasis documentary made by the team behind this year’s Amy Winehouse biopic.

James Gay-Rees of production company On The Corner and director Asif Kapadia will follow up their work on the hugely successful Amy with a new flick charting the rise of the Britpop band right from their early days. Filmmakers are said to have been given “unprecedented” access to the band and unseen archive footage.

Kapadia will act as executive-director on the film with Mat Whitecross (Spike Island) to direct.
