Noel Gallagher

Noel Gallagher has ‘unveiled’ the acts set to appear at the series of six Teenage Cancer Trust shows he’s curating at London’s Royal Albert Hall in mid-March. The music programme features Kasabian, Ryan Adams, Primal Scream, Rizzle Kicks and Labrinth, plus an ‘evening of comedy’ (20 Mar) starring Russell Brand, Noel Fielding and other special guests.

Noel will play the RAH beside his High Flying Birds on 23 Mar, sharing a bill (and potentially, a ‘Tender’ rendition) with ex-Britpop nemeses Graham Coxon and Damon Albarn, so that’s charitable.

He tells Xfm: “I wouldn’t be adverse to getting up with them and playing ‘Tender’ though – that being one of my favourite Blur songs. What would I have said in 1997? There would have been swear words involved. Definitely. We’re all older now. I’ve been on tour with Graham recently and I’ve met Damon recently… we’re all old dudes from the past”.
