Noel Gallagher Announces Nocturne Live 2018

*Oasis founder’s High Flying Birds to headline Friday night of Blenheim Palace concert series.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are the final act to be announced for this year’s Nocturne Live concert series, which returns to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire in June. Joining Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Gary Barlow, Elvis Costello, The Waterboys and Nick Lowe on the line-up for the four day event, the multi-million-selling Oasis star will headline the 10,000-capacity Great Court on Friday June 15th.

As guitarist and principal songwriter of legendary rock band Oasis, Gallagher had eight UK number-one singles, eight UK number-one albums and won six Brit Awards. His solo performances feature a mix of solo material alongside a selection of Oasis hits and the High Flying Birds touring band consists of former Oasis guitarist Gem Archer, former Oasis session pianist Mike Rowe, former Oasis drummer Chris Sharrock and The Zutons bassist Russell Pritchard.

Nocturne Live Director Ciro Romano:

“We’re confident that the line-up for this year’s Nocturne is our strongest to date. In Nile Rodgers, Elvis Costello, Gary Barlow and Noel Gallagher we have four true giants of the music world, each offering something different but all undeniably world class. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the Palace in June.”
