Watch Johnny Marr and Paul Weller Make a Surprise Appearance Onstage with Noel Gallagher
The final night of Noel Gallagher's latest tour included surprise appearances from a pair of special guests.
As you can see in the fan-shot video above and below, Gallagher — closing out a lengthy run of shows in support of 2015's Chasing Yesterday, his second LP with the High Flying Birds — was joined by Smiths vet Johnny Marr as well as Paul Weller, who Gallagher cheekily introduced to the crowd as "my neighbor."
Marr joined Gallagher for a pair of songs, lending his guitar to a performance of the Oasis hit "Champagne Supernova" before sitting in on the Chasing Yesterday track "Ballad of the Mighty I" — the studio version of which also features a Marr cameo. Weller, meanwhile, came out on stage during the encore, chipping in for a pair of back pages from his own catalog with renditions of the Jam classics "Pretty Green" and "Town Called Malice."
Gallagher will next be seen on the big screen courtesy of the Oasis documentary Supernova, which is scheduled to open in the U.K. in October. He's also presumably getting near the home stretch for his next studio effort, which he said he was "already a bit of the way into" shortly after Chasing Yesterday's arrival.
Noel's sibling, ex-Oasis partner and frequent sparring partner Liam Gallagher, meanwhile, recently stopped comparing Noel to a potato long enough to predict the duo would eventually reunite. "I believe Oasis will sail again and it’ll be glorious," said Gallagher. "If it’s really about the fans, Noel, let’s do it – because they want it. One year. Tour for a year. We’d smash it. My bags are still packed from my last tour, so I’m ready."
