Noel Gallagher explains why he includes Oasis songs in his solo sets

Noel Gallagher has spoken about why he includes certain Oasis songs in his solo sets in a conversation with Metallica’s Lars Ulrich.

Appearing on the metal drummer’s Beats 1 show, ‘It’s Electric!’, Gallagher spoke on leaving Oasis and the importance of his twenty-year-old songs to his fans.
Speaking about his first solo ventures playing Oasis songs, Noel said: “When I first started, I used to do 20 songs and 12 of them were Oasis songs, and that’s pure necessity. Now it’s down to five.”
“The only conscious thing that I would do, because those songs are part of people’s lives particularly in England, I wouldn’t have Charlotte [Marionneau] play the scissors on an Oasis song…I’m aware of what those songs mean to people.”

Elsewhere he spoke on what the classic Oasis songs means to him now: “Those songs got me to where I am now and I wouldn’t be that arrogant as to go out and not perform at least five or six [Oasis songs]. I wish I could do ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Star’ and ‘Slide Away’ and maybe some of the earlier stuff but they just don’t suit my voice”.
