Noel Gallagher is not a fan of many things, but one thing he is a fan of is U2. He really likes U2! He attended a U2 concert in San Jose back in May, at the beginning of their ongoing Innocence + Experience Tour, and this is what he had to say about it:
I thought it was as great a leap forward…It was theatre. It starts off as a punk rock gig but then it gets intimate, there’s a lot of truth in it about where they come from and the people that they are…I’ve been a fan since hearing “New Year’s Day” in 1983 and I’ve seen them loads of time. With the greatest respect in the world when I saw the 360° Tour I thought that was the end of something, and not in a bad way. I thought, this is so staggering and huge and tall, so amazing, I thought this was the end of something and I wondered what the beginning of the next thing will be — and here it is. It was staggering — and only the fourth show. I can’t wait to see it again.
Well, he did get to see it again — but this time, he actually got to be in the show. At U2’s gig in London last night, the former Oasis guitarist joined the band onstage to perform “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” playing acoustic guitar and singing along with Bono. Watch below.
He took the tube there, too. What a guy!
