Noel Gallagher's High Flying Bird's returned to Poole in dramatic fashion, reminding fans of his strength as a solo artist.

Noel Gallagher, half of the brothers behind the former band Oasis and frontman of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, blasted fans with noise of pure rock-and-roll at Poole Lighthouse on March 17 in a reminder of his talent as a singer and musician. 

Known for his work in his younger years with his brother, Liam Gallagher, in the iconic 90's British band, Noel's performance blended the new with the old, opening the performance with his new album 'Council Skies' before slipping into the classic 90's tunes. 

Although ultimately a High Flying Bird's concert, it was clear the majority of the audience had come to see his old songs, with the lyrics and songs of his new band unknown to much of the audience.

This, mixed with an audience member fainting, created an awkward start in which Gallagher had to whistle security to the person in need. 

However, his experience on stage quickly came into effect, knowing how to awaken the audience. 

Asking if the person who fainted was ok, Noel reminded the audience of his much-loved and controversial character after he stated "he just fainted because I'm so f****** amazing" before he turned to perform some Oasis classics. 

Noel played fan favourites 'Going Nowhere', 'Talk Tonight', 'Half the World Away', and 'Little by Little'. 

Despite several audience requests to play his much-loved, if overplayed, 'Wonderwall', Gallagher refused to play the song, serving to not be categorised as the former ghost of Oasis-cum-dancing monkey.

Instead, he acted to be a living reminder of his own ability to be one of the UK's best performers and also to ask the audience who was the real genius behind the Britain's favourite brothers. 

In a band so unique for its sound, Noel made Liam's voice feel unmissed and was even able to find someone to fill his role as tambourine player. 

There were a few confusing moments such as the rock cover of 'Love Will Tear Us Apart' by Joy Division, only introducing it as one that 'needs no introduction' leaving fans unsure of the song until half way through. 

Before the encore also, Gallagher walked off stage with no goodbye.

While it could be said to be a 'very Noel thing to do', it left murmurs in the audience over whether he was coming back - which of course he did.

Ending the night with 'Stand By Me' and 'Don't Look Back in Anger', Gallagher was self-aware enough to serve emotional end to the evening. 

The first of two performances in the area, with the next happening on March 18 at O2 Academy Bournemouth, the performance was a warm-up for his concert at the Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust on March 21. 

Some might say it was a performance of two halves, which is simply true as Gallagher has defined himself by these two parts.

Aware of the modernisation of his music in High Flying Birds, Noel is able to confidently project that he doesn't want to be just known as Liam's brother while able to pay homage to his work during his Oasis years.

Timed with the release of Liam's new album with Stone Roses' John Squire, titled 'Liam Gallagher and John Squire', Noel made enough of an impression to keep himself the more popular brother in Poole.
