Former Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher will tour the U.K. in 2015 with his High Flying Birds, and the upcoming shows sold out just 10 minutes after going on sale yesterday.
Gallagher will release his new album, Chasing Yesterday, on March 2, 2015, according to NME, supporting the record with a tour of the U.K. and Ireland.

Earlier this week, on October 13, Gallagher announced details of the album during a Facebook Q&A. The lead single from the record, In The Heat of the Moment, is streaming on YouTube ahead of its November 17 release date. Speaking about the song, Noel revealed it was the last track to be put to tape.
“The first single was the last track to be recorded,” he said. “It’s called In The Heat Of The Moment. Is it great? Of course it is. What does it mean, it doesn’t mean anything.”
The album, which is the first to be produced by Gallagher, is set to feature former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, who guests on Ballad of the Mighty I. According to Mojo, Gallagher related that Marr improvised his guitar parts for the album, refusing to listen to the song before he entered the studio.
“He just arrived with two guitars and a bag of effects pedals,” Gallagher noted. “And I have to say, he’s unbelievable. He’s way up there, on another level to the rest of us. The result is a burst of energy that helped make Mighty I one of the best songs I’ve ever written.”
Gallagher has repeatedly denied rumors of a reunion with Oasis, as The Inquisitr previously reported. Despite 2014 marking the 20th anniversary of the band’s iconic debut, Definitely Maybe, Gallagher has denied interest in a reunion, preferring to continue with his solo career which first began in 2011 with the release of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
