The ultimate U2 fanboy Noel Gallagher has never shied away from is love of U2. His previous band, Oasis opened up part of the American leg of U2’s “Popmart Tour” 20 years ago.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will be supporting U2 during the Europe and UK leg of the just announced 30 Year anniversary “Joshua Tree” Tour.
In a statement about the support slot, Gallagher said:
“It will be both a pleasure and an honour to play my part in what still remains the greatest show on earth.” – Noel Gallagher
Check out this awesome fan shot video of Gallagher in the crowd dancing and singing along with wife Sara and Bono’s wife Ali Hewson during “Bad” at London O2 Arena, on March 11, 2015.
He later hopped on stage with the Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. to end the show and share lead vocal duties during “Where The Streets Have No Name” and an impromptu version of The Beatles “All You Need Is Love”.
“We’d like to bring out one of my heroes, one of the bands heroes to help us with this next tune. Will you welcome to the stage, the high flying bird himself, Noel Gallagher” – Bono
Hopefully some kind of collaboration happens on tour again.
Unfortunately, the North American Leg of the tour is supported by hipster band extraordinaire The Lumineers. Yuck!!! Liam Gallagher of course tweeted his unabashed feelings about his big bro.
These bands do truly admire and love each other. Click the photo or link below to see Bono & Liam making out!!!
