Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will headline a major outdoor concert this summer in the stunning grounds of English Heritage’s Audley End House & Gardens, one of England’s grandest mansions, on Saturday 5 August.
The multi award-winning alternative rock outfit will head to Saffron Walden in Essex for a one-off show featuring the band’s biggest anthems along with material from their most recent number one 2021 album ‘Back The Way We Came: Vol 1.’
Acclaimed Liverpool indie rock band The Zutons will be joining them as special guests for this superb musical evening. Tom Meighan (former Kasabian lead) will also be making an appearance, performing some of his most recent emotional solo work to round off this impressive musical event.
The concert is part of Heritage Live, a unique annual concert series that brings world-famous artists to the most beautiful landmarks in the country. Past concerts have taken place on the grounds of historic sites such as Kenwood on Hampstead Heath, Englefield House in Berkshire and the Ardingly Showground.
Heritage Live Promoter Giles Cooper said:
“Noel is one of rock’s true iconic geniuses and we’re so pleased he’ll be performing another Heritage Live show for us next summer. Their show with us at Kenwood last year was one of the highlights of the summer; the High Flying Birds are such a brilliant band and we really can’t wait to stage this show for them in one of the UK’s most amazing concert settings.”
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have undoubtedly reached icon status among the British music scene. After first emerging in 2011 with their eponymous debut album, the band have only gone from strength to strength as the years have passed. With this first album achieving double platinum status in the UK, (only 6 months post-release) and going on to sell over 2.5 million copies worldwide, it’s safe to say that NGHFB needs little introduction when their music quite obviously speaks for itself.
In the two decades prior to this release, Noel Gallagher was main songwriter, lead guitarist and occasional lead vocalist of British band Oasis. One of the biggest bands ever to emerge from the UK. His band played a tremendous role in shaping and inspiring British guitar music from the 90's onwards. So, it comes as no surprise that his High Flying Birds have continuously impressed fans for over a decade.
By the time their second album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ was released in 2015, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds had already played 150 live shows in 32 different countries (and another 122 shows in 28 countries followed). Touring to a global audience, alongside a variety of music’s heavy hitters, as a live band NGHFB is hard to beat. With two certified platinum albums under their belt, NGHFB continued their career ascent with 2017’s ‘Who Built The Moon’, 2019 and 2020’s multi-genre EP releases and then more recently their 2021 Best Of release ‘Back The Way We Came: Vol 1’.
From number one to number one, these Mancunians have racked up an impressive list of accolades during their decade-long career, including a Q Icon Award (2011), an NME Godlike Genius Award (2012), an Ivor Novello Award (2013) and even a GQ Icon Award (2013) to name only a few. But even as we head towards the end of 2022, with the new single ‘Pretty Boy’ in everyone’s ears, it is quite apparent that the group remains at the top of their game.
Fans of NGHFB can expect to hear new material from the band’s recent works along with anthemic hits from their back catalogue such as ‘Chasing Yesterday’, ‘Who Built The Moon?’ and ‘Black Star Dancing’.
The Zutons and Tom Meighan will be joining Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds in August as very special guests.
The Zutons were introduced to the British music scene back in 2001, and have earned their critically acclaimed indie rocker status through the release of three UK chart-climbing albums including ‘Who Killed…… The Zutons’ and ‘Tired of Hanging Around’ (featuring hits such as ‘Valerie’). Their one-of-a-kind style and energetic live shows have attracted fans across the globe, including a range of industry icons (including Noel Gallagher, Miles Kane, Nile Rodgers) that have commissioned various band members to feature on their own albums along the way.
Tom Meighan is a man who is no stranger to the UK spotlight. The former vocalist of the alternative rock powerhouse Kasabian, Meighan’s signature frenetic energy and powerful baritone have kept his name in the mouths of British music fans since he came onto the scene in 1997. Since battling with alcohol addiction, mental health issues and a very public familial conflict, Meighan has since pursued his own solo musical endeavours with a focus on rehabilitation and emotional honesty. From his debut ‘Movin’ On’ EP (featuring singles such as ‘Would You Mind’ and the namesake release ‘Movin’ On’), to his ‘Let It Ride’ and ‘Shout It Out’ singles, 2022 is the start of something new for Tom Meighan, but more importantly it is the start of a new (and healthier) man.
