FORMER Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher has announced a rare chance for his North Wales fans to see and hear the Mancunian legend up close after confirming a gig at Llandudno's Venue Cymru.

Gallagher is recording new material in studios in London and LA, but has announced a short run of all-seated shows in Britain before heading to the Far East on tour in May with the shows being billed as a chance for fans to catch the High Flying Bird’s 11 piece line up in more intimate surroundings where new material, currently being recorded, is likely to get an airing.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, together with very special guest ex-Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes, will be calling in at Llandudno on Wednesday May 8.

Tickets on-sale from Monday February 18 at 10am from
