BANGKOK: -- Thais turned out en masse to catch British rockers Oasis when they played here back in early 2005. The band has of course split but now there's a chance to see founding member Noel Gallagher's new outfit High Flying Birds.

Gallagher, who'll be backed by Mikey Rowe on keyboards, Tim Smith on guitar, Russell Pritchard on bass and Jeremy Stacey on drums, will be playing at Hall 106 of the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Center (Bitec) Bangna on Thursday at 7pm before heading to Singapore for "F1 Rocks!", where he'll join Maroon 5 and Katy Perry for two nights of shows prior to Sunday's Grand Prix.

Santi "Freddy" Samithisawad, managing director of Rock N' Rolla Corporation, was joined by Narongsak Thongwattanavanich, managing director of Computer Label Worldwide, Norasate Mudkong aka DJ Seed and musician Julachak "Hugo" Chakrapong at the recent press conference for "Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds Live in Bangkok" recently at Easton Grand Hotel's Surasak Room.

"Noel is considered a real rock VIP in England so it's a great honour for me to play on the same stage. And my ad hoc band features the greatest rock musicians of our days," says Hugo, who will be opening for High Flying Birds.

Fans can expect the British rocker to play songs from his self-titled debut and new album as well as "Don't Look Back in Anger", "Live Forever" and "Wonderwall".

Tickets cost from Bt1,000 to Bt3,000 at Thai Ticket Major counters. Call (02) 262 3456 or visit to
