Noel Gallagher has announced he will be returning home to Manchester to play at Heaton Park, where he will be supported by the Doves.

Tickets are on sale from 10am on Friday 7th of December and you can purchase them here.
Earlier this year Gallagher had teased that he had new material that was ready to be released and a fresh batch of songs that sound like ‘The Police meets The Cure.’ Speaking to Radio X about the last time he played at Heaton Park in Manchester Gallagher said: ‘I haven’t played there since we had a rather chaotic night there in 2009 with Oasis, when Liam offered all the crowd their money back! It was the first night of three nights and we’d been looking forward to it the whole tour, and then we got there and after the first song the generators packed up – twice.’
He then continued on ‘The promoter said, if it goes off again, we’ll offer the crowd their money back. I said, Steady on. I think Liam misheard it, and said right, they’re getting their money back – before we’d even plugged back in, he’d said this is a free gig, you can all have your money back. And of course, the generator never went off.’
Noel Gallagher and The High Fly Birds will be joined by the recently reunited Doves, who have been on hiatus since 2010 after playing what they said would be their ‘last ever gig’ at the Warehouse Project. Now they are back with more dates and new material since 2009’s praised ‘Kingdom Of Rust’. They have also announced a headline show at London’s Royal Albert Hall for the Teenage Cancer Trust run of shows in March. These two will also be joined by White Denim, who is an American four-piece rock band from Texas and are currently on tour in the UK and Ireland in February, in support of their latest album.
