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.”

Tickets for the Noel Gallagher concert start at £45 and go on sale at 9am on Friday (February 16).
