He said the day before the show:
"I haven't been to NZ since 1997. I have no recollection of it at all! My tour manager informed me I may have had an impromptu sing song round a piano in a hotel bar with that singer Joe Cocker!! I don't remember that at all!! Scary, eh?"
I saw that show - it was pretty crazy, Liam was drunk, Noel stormed out!
Playing the last ever gig at the BDO, Noel had some big shoes to fill. Joe Strummer did an amazing set after the RCHP in 2000 and the Flaming Lips will live in infamy for their costume filled closing act in 2005.
So did Noel deliver? Let's just say for him to close the Big Day Out with Don't Look Back in Anger was pretty apt. Also die hard fans got three Oasis b-sides! Stocked to here Talk Tonight - I pretty much learnt how to play guitar with the chords from that song! Any way, here's the set list.
