Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds announce Edinburgh Castle gig

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds are set to return to Edinburgh Castle this summer, performing a massive outdoor gig at the famous Esplanade on Thursday, 19 July.

The former Oasis man returns to the Capital as part of this year’s Castle Concerts series, which will also see Bananarama, Del Amitri and II Divo play in the city this summer.

Mark Mackie, Director Castle Concerts, said, “We are delighted to be adding Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds as our fourth concert at Edinburgh Castle for 2018 – they last sold out the Castle in July 2012.”

The follow-up to the platinum-selling Chasing Yesterday (2015), Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ third album Who Built The Moon? was released in November to huge critical acclaim.

While flowing from the same, molten core of melody, songwriting craft and towering self-belief, the album is poised between experimental and a jukebox of ageless influence following a bracing, two-year creative collaboration with renowned producer, DJ and composer David Holmes.

Nick Finnigan, Executive Manager at Edinburgh Castle, said: “We’re delighted to announce that we will be welcoming rock royalty in the form of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds to Edinburgh
Castle as part of our Castle Concerts programme later this summer.

“It’s sure to be a special evening set against the stunning backdrop of one of the world’s most iconic castles.”
