Following the highly successful 2017 tour in celebration of U2’s seminal album, The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 will see U2 make a much anticipated return to New Zealand and Australia for the first time since the record-shattering U2 360° Tour in 2010. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds last toured Australia in 2016 alongside their performance at Bluesfest.
The announcement follows the release of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ new single “Black Star Dancing”, from the forthcoming EP of the same name due June 14 via Sour Mash / Caroline Australia. This release follows a hat-trick of Number 1 albums for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – most recently the Mercury-nominated ‘Who Built The Moon?’, which achieved gold certification less than two weeks after its release in 2017. It’s also a record breaking 10 consecutive chart-topping studio albums in the UK for Noel.
PRAISE FOR ‘WHO BUILT THE MOON?’
★★★★ The Guardian…
★★★★ The Independent
“Noel’s best album since ‘…Morning Glory’” ★★★★ NME
“There’s both energy and nous in these songs” ★★★½ – Bernard Zuel, Rolling Stone Australia
“A radical departure from his ‘90s rock sound, incorporating everything from trip-hop beats to female backing vocals and choirs, with lush, multi-layered orchestration. It’s big and it’s beautiful.” –Kathy McCabe, The Daily Telegraph
“Unabashed and full of hope… vulnerable, and that’s a powerful thing.” – STACK
