Description: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds will perform at New York's legendary Beacon Theatre on November 14 in support of his solo debut album NOEL GALLAGHER'S HIGH FLYING BIRDS, set to be released on November 8.
NOEL GALLAGHER'S HIGH FLYING BIRDS was recorded in London and completed in Los Angeles during 2010 and the first half of 2011. The album was co-produced by Noel Gallagher and Dave Sardy.
And when asked by his manager who the High Flying Birds are, Noel responded "They aren't anyone in particular. Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds is me and whoever is around at the time of whatever it is that I'm doing, a loose collective kinda thing."
On August 30th, the first U.S. single "If I Had A Gun" from NOEL GALLAGHER'S HIGH FLYING BIRDS will make its radio debut on KROQ, Los Angeles. And on November 10th, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds will make their network television debut on the Late Show With David Letterman.
