The guitarist explained that he doesn’t focus on his past glories when working on new material for the High Flying Birds, but realises that fans want to hear the tracks that first cemented his reputation.
He told The Sun: “When I am making a record, I don’t think about my legacy. I am in the trenches with the songs and I follow my instincts. How they come out is how they come out. As a whole, High Flying Birds is a totally different set-up to Oasis. They couldn’t be more different.
“But when I put together a show, you have to merge the two. You can’t charge people £70 a ticket and not do a handful of Oasis songs, some of the most famous songs of the Nineties.”
Opening up on plans for the tour, he said: “It is a privileged position to be in. I will probably get round to a tour of mostly Oasis songs when I do the acoustic thing.
“There is always a plan to take that out properly with an orchestra on tour, but I am not sure when that will happen because of the COVID shit.”
