Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds will return to the stage this month for their final shows of 2023. Fans can likely expect the main act to perform for well over an hour each night - and the venues have started to confirm door times.

For those who can't make it to the shows in December, Noel Gallagher will be playing four outdoor shows in Summer 2024 - tickets will go on sale soon.

If you have tickets for the December arena shows, you might be wondering what to expect from the shows. Here's all you need to know:

Who are the supporting acts?

Noel Gallagher will be joined by special guest Tom Meighan, the former frontman of Kasabian. There has been some controversy around the choice due to the singer's previous conviction for attacking his then-fiance.

In 2020 he plead guilty and was sentenced to 200 hours of community service. His departure from Kasabian was announced around the same time.

Meighan issued a public statement at the time. He said: "I would like to make a statement about recent events and publicly apologise to my partner Vikki, my bandmates, my friends, family and fans. I am very sorry and deeply regret my recent behaviour. In no way am I trying to condone my actions or make excuses.

"I am completely to blame and accept my responsibility." Meighan said he has been struggling with an alcohol addiction and was diagnosed with ADHD, commenting: "The incident in April was a wake-up call for me, for who I was, and what I was becoming. I was spiralling out of control. My mental health was becoming more and more unstable and I was at breaking point."
