Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds today announce a headline performance at the historic landmark Warwick Castle, taking place on Sunday 21st July, amongst Noel’s massive run of summer 2024 outdoor live shows and festival headline dates.

The show will include very special guests Johnny Marr and The WAEVE – the side project of Blur’s Graham Coxon in collaboration with Rose Elinor Dougall. This unique line-up brings together three songwriting giants whose careers began with three of Britain’s most influential bands of all time in Oasis, The Smiths and Blur. Tickets are on-sale from 23rd February at 10:00am GMT here.

Fans can look forward to a set including a wide selection of Oasis classics, as well as a cross section of material from the past dozen years of Noel Gallagher’s highly successful career as a solo artist with his band, the High Flying Birds.

The Warwick Castle announcement arrives as part of an exciting new partnership between RG Live and Merlin Entertainment, set to present a series of concerts across the summer beginning with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

Recently announced to headline both Kendal Calling and Y Not Festival in August, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ huge summer 2024 tour will also see outdoor headline gigs at Wigan’s Robin Park (Thursday 18th July), London’s Alexandra Palace Park (Saturday 20th July), as well as returning to Cardiff Castle (Wednesday 17th July), plus an already sold out Halifax The Piece Hall (Thursday 1st August) following sold-out nights at these venues in 2022. Last remaining tickets are available here.

Ahead of the summer shows, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will perform two intimate warm-up gigs at Poole Lighthouse and Portsmouth Guildhall, before a special concert at the Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust – a full circle moment after Noel performed at the very first event back in 2000.

The newly announced summer touring plans follow Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ triumphant run of UK arena shows in December 2023. The tour marked a huge finale to the year after touring across three continents, with a mammoth 26-date tour of North America, and epic headline UK outdoor gigs including Crystal Palace Bowl, Brighton Beach and more, all in celebration of the release of Noel’s fourth solo studio album, ‘Council Skies’. Summer 2023 culminated in the band’s biggest ever headline gig to date, a massive homecoming show at Manchester’s Wythenshawe Park on August Bank Holiday weekend.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ latest live performances have been described as “emotional and thrilling” by the BBC, “typically legendary” by the Daily Mirror, “effortlessly brilliant” by CLASH, “heroic” by the Evening Standard, whilst The i newspaper confirmed, “Noel Gallagher’s gonna live forever”.

‘Council Skies’ has been widely regarded by fans and media as Noel’s most complete solo statement to date. The album includes ‘Open The Door, See What You Find’, ‘Pretty Boy’, ‘Easy Now’, and recent single ‘We’re Gonna Get There In The End’. The album has received widespread critical acclaim and was featured in several Albums Of The Year lists including the likes of MOJO and Rolling Stone UK.

‘Council Skies’ is available now on CD, heavyweight vinyl with bonus 7”, LP picture disc plus various digital formats including a Dolby Atmos spatial audio version. All Council Skies formats are available here.
