After having recently hosted an acoustic set performed by British rock group Snow Patrol, local gig promoter Very Radio seems ready to bring another big musical act to Bangkok.
The company hinted yesterday that it’s currently working on bringing Noel Gallagher, former founding member of rock band Oasis, back to Bangkok for a live performance.
You know Oasis. They produced “Wonderwall.” They had a very public rivalry with Blur back in the day, as the two Britpop bands battled it out for cultural supremacy. Noel’s brother Liam, formerly the lead singer of Oasis, infamously stated “we’re bigger than the Beatles” during the peak of the band’s success in the mid-’90s.
As a teaser, Very Radio wrote on its Facebook page on Sunday: “Now you [can] rehearse singing this man’s song so we all can sing ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ together,” referencing the first Oasis single in which Noel sang lead vocals instead of Liam.
The concert will take place on November 30 at Show DC Arena. Tickets are THB3,600 and they’re available online from 10am September 22.
Gallagher previously performed in Bangkok in 2012, when he came to play under his solo act moniker Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Bird. The show was played in Bangkok at BITEC Bangna, with support from Hugo, a Thai-Brit musician who’s best known for his cover of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems.”
Later this year, Very Radio will also organize its first outdoor music festival called Very Fest, which is set to host headliners such as Brighton indie rockers The Kooks, English outfit Nothing But Thieves and Australian reggae fusion group Sticky Fingers.
