Noel Gallagher Says He May Retire From Touring in the Next 10 Years
“Maybe I’ll retire from playing live, it depends how long you can be arsed,” he said. “Ten years from now I don’t think I’ll be getting on a bus – it’s undignified. But I don’t think I’ll ever stop writing – as long as my brain and bones last out.”
“I’ll just have to tailor the touring,” he continued. “It’s not fun being on a bus for six weeks in America. It’s fine when you’re young, but I’m almost 50.”
“I haven’t got the stamina for three days at Glastonbury anymore, although I did that last year and it was f---ing horrific,” Gallagher added. “On the third day I get a bad back and all the rest of it, but on the whole, I think I’m doing all right.”
Gallagher’s revelation could be a result of the fact that he was recently playing gigs despite suffering from a chest infection. He’s currently touring in support of his sophomore solo album, Chasing Yesterday. The singer is slated to arrive in the U.S. in early May.
