Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

Whether you loved or hated Oasis (we loved), The Gallaghers have always been some of rock’s most disliked brothers. But personalities aside, we can not help but love their music. Just us? Anyway, Noel is back on tour with his High Flying Birds. And considering he wrote 86% of Oasis songs, there are often surprises.

Where: Bell Centre – 1909 Avenue des Canadiens-de-Montreal
Tickets: Available online from $35

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
