Noel Gallagher has confirmed plans for a solo Oasis ‘Greatest Hits’ acoustic tour in the near future, possibly in 2022. It isn’t quite an Oasis reunion, but it’s the best fans tired of mostly hearing High Flying Birds songs at Noel shows could ever hope for.
He told The Sun: “When I am making a record, I don’t think about my legacy. I am in the trenches with the songs and I follow my instincts. How they come out is how they come out. As a whole, High Flying Birds is a totally different set-up to Oasis. They couldn’t be more different.
“But when I put together a show, you have to merge the two. You can’t charge people £70 a ticket and not do a handful of Oasis songs, some of the most famous songs of the Nineties.”
Opening up on plans for the tour, he said: “It is a privileged position to be in. I will probably get round to a tour of mostly Oasis songs when I do the acoustic thing.
“There is always a plan to take that out properly with an orchestra on tour, but I am not sure when that will happen because of the COVID shit.”
