Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds with special guests Primal Scream and Happy Mondays

Sunday, 27 August 2023, 8.00pm

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds have announced a headline open-air show at Royal Hospital Kilmainham on August 27th, 2023. Special guests Primal Scream and Happy Mondays will also perform.

The show in Dublin will be part of an extended run of open-air summer shows that will follow the release of Gallagher's much-anticipated new album 'Council Skies' on June 2nd. The album features the recently released 'Pretty Boy' and the brand new single 'Easy Now.'

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds first emerged in 2011 with their eponymous album. Following three UK number one studio albums, they released 'Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-2021)' in June 2021, which is a diverse best-of album marking a decade of the band's success. The album was gold-certified and the 12th UK number one album across Gallagher's career.

Primal Scream, formed in 1982, have made records with George Clinton and Kate Moss, invited Mani of the Stone Roses and Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine into the fold, survived narcotic oblivion, personal trauma and the death of beloved guitarist Robert “Throb” Young, and captured the mood of the nation several times over. Throughout it all, they have always sounded like Primal Scream. And they have always made great singles.

Happy Mondays formed in 1980 in Salford, Greater Manchester. Their first album 'Squirrel and G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile' (White Out) was released in 1987 and was produced by John Cale. This was followed by two classic albums, 'Bummed' in 1988, produced by Martin Hannett, and 'Pills ’n’ Thrills and Bellyaches' in 1990, produced by Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne. The latter went platinum in the UK, selling more than 350,000 copies, and put the band firmly on the map as one of the most influential bands to come out of the UK in the early 1990s.

The event is produced by MCD Productions, and tickets are priced at €49.90 including booking fees.
