Noel Gallagher has revealed how much of his older Oasis material will feature on his setlist during his first solo tour, as well as having a sly dig at Radiohead.

Speaking to Rolling Stone about how much of the set for his solo shows will comprise of older material – “about four songs” – Gallagher justified the inclusion of playing Oasis songs by saying:

[quote]I’ve always thought most bands should play Oasis songs, anyway. The Foo Fighters should definitely do a couple. Green Day could do even more than one or two. Radiohead? I mean, let’s face it. It’d be a better night out.[/quote]

It’s not the first time one of the Gallagher brothers has had a pop at Radiohead. In the past Noel’s brother Liam has called Radiohead fans “ugly and boring” as well as recently telling Thom Yorke to “go fuck himself”.

In the interview Noel Gallagher was also asked about the change from selling out huge arenas to playing smaller, more intimate venues. When asked if the transition of being closer to the audience and being put in a changed enviroment would be a benefit to the singer, Noel said: “People keep saying, ‘Oh, it’ll be great to get out of your comfort zone’. It’s like, ‘Fuck you!’ Get out of your fucking comfort zone! It fucking took me 20 years to build a comfort zone. I have no fucking intention of stepping outside of mine. Not for no fucker. That’s fucking gone! Fucking comfort zone bastard.”

‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ will be released on October 17 through Sour Mash Records.
