AKA Noel Gallagher know how expertly pace a concert. The stagecraft is all fairly perfunctory: some vaguely psychedelic washes, some white light and smoke there. But no song outstays its welcome and the setlist is expertly balanced between beloved classics arranged with a new, more bittersweet texture (Wonderwall, Champagne Supernova), (Half the World Away, Sad Song, The Masterplan) and the best of Noel G’s material (The Dying of the Light, AKA… What a Life!), which more than holds its own.
There’s no escaping the feeling that AKA Noel Gallagher are an entirely professional outfit and bound to have the festival masses in choral mode!
