Noel Gallagher took a cheeky swipe at his brother Liam at his first solo show since the break-up of Oasis by opening with the band's track (It's Good) To Be Free.
The guitarist, who left the Wonderwall hitmakers in 2009, celebrated his 'single' status by performing the 1994 B-side as he made his debut with new band Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Ireland on Sunday (23Oct11).
The rocker created the group after falling out with his bandmate brother Liam in a backstage bust-up prior to a gig in France two years ago (09).
But despite the acrimonious split, Gallagher relied heavily on Oasis' back catalogue throughout his live show, playing Oasis songs including Wonderwall, Supersonic and Talk Tonight between new material.
His encore also included the Oasis classics Don't Look Back In Anger, The Importance Of Being Idle and Little By Little.
The star's triumphant concert came the same day his debut solo album, titled Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, entered the U.K. album chart at number one.
