NOEL GALLAGHER’S HIGH FLYING BIRDS

HEADLINES THE KIMMEL CENTER CULTURAL CAMPUS

FOR A ONE-NIGHT-ONLY PERFORMANCE  

FEBRUARY 13, 2018

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Philadelphia, PA, December 18, 2017) –– Fresh off the release of their highly-anticipated new album, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds soar into the Kimmel Center’s Merriam Theater on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. While flowing from the same molten core of melody, songwriting craft, and towering self-belief, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ new album Who Built the Moon? alters the legendary British singer-songwriter’s course, following a two-year creative collaboration with renowned producer, DJ, and composer, David Holmes.

 

“Noel Gallagher’s illustrious career has proven that he is a musician whose art has multigenerational appeal,” said Anne Ewers, President and CEO of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. “Ever-evolving and working towards perfecting his craft, Gallagher’s latest album showcases his artistic influences and continued growth across all genres. We are excited to welcome him back to our Cultural Campus for another great night of rock!”

 

Bursting bubbles of perception, drilling dynamite into cracks between past and present, and painting a daring portrait of the artist as a free man, Who Built the Moon? gathers vocalists and guest musicians from around the world. It breathes life into 11 tracks finely poised between experimental and a jukebox of ageless influence. Meeting to work in Belfast and London, Gallagher and Holmes tuned into French psychedelic pop as much as classic electro, soul, rock, disco, and dance on a culture adventure into recorded sound.

 

If tracks blipping with ethereal, electronic experimentation, and French spoken word start rumors of Gallagher’s restlessness, then instrumentals drifting with a latent, melancholic energy, inspired by European television soundtracks confirm them. Setting fire to familiarity, Gallagher wrote entirely in the studio for the first time, leaping into laboratory conditions and a cut and paste adventure with Holmes, turning his back, at least temporarily, on studied solitude and six strings. The studio door was left open for Paul Weller (organ on Holy Mountain) and Johnny Marr (guitar and harmonica on If Love Is The Law) to not only bear witness to, but make a mark on a pivotal moment in Gallagher’s ten studio album career.

 

Other featured upcoming performances at the Kimmel Center Cultural Campus include: G3 2018 (February 17, 2018, Merriam Theater), Regina Carter: Simply Ella (March 24, 2018, Perelman Theater) and Brit Floyd: Eclipse World Tour 2018 (April 6, 2018, Academy of Music), and Brandi Carlile (May 18, 2018, Merriam Theater).
