Noel Gallagher and His High Flying Birds Headline Sheffield ‘Rock N Roll’ Circus Event
UK music icon Noel Gallagher and his High-Flying Birds are heading to South Yorkshire this September.
Kickstarting with Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on Friday 1st September, Rock N Roll Circus will host a weekend series of concerts that will be staged in a huge bespoke Big Top, specially built for this three-day series of live music.
And there’s a number of big names playing over the weekend. Joining Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on the line-up will be Happy Mondays, The Cribs, The Joy Formidable and Somebody’s Child.
With a new album ‘Council Skies’ set for release on 2nd June, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Bird’s appearance in Sheffield is the conclusion of an extended run of summer concerts in the UK for the legendary star.
Noel headlined the inaugural Rock N Roll Circus in Newcastle last summer. And the event organisers are looking forward to bringing the touring circus concept to music fans in Yorkshire. There’ll also be fire performers, aerialists, contortionists, stilt walkers and acrobats there too. And that promises to bring a whole new dimension to the traditional concert experience.
“A living legend”
A spokesperson for Rock N Roll Circus said: “We’re proud to be bringing our event to South Yorkshire. Sheffield has such a strong tradition for Live music, we’re delighted to be able to host our touring concept there. Noel is a living legend, his live shows are always amazing, featuring songs across his 30 year career. The first tracks to be heard from his new album Council Skies are great with the album to be released before he arrives in Sheffield.”
Noel Gallagher and His High Flying Birds played Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage in June 2022. There, he delivered a career-spanning set to one of the weekend’s biggest crowds. And the band look forward to performing their chart-topping hits in Sheffield this September.
Councillor Martin Smith is Chair of the Economic Development and Skills Committee. He said: “This is an incredibly exciting event which combines the best artists of the UK music scene with the top circus performers. It will be an immersive experience you won’t want to miss. Sheffield’s reputation as the music city is growing. And this event is a fantastic new element to the city’s varied major events calendar, featuring the best of music, sport, outdoors and entertainment. I’m so excited for the year ahead.”
