During Marr’s encore at the O2 Brixton Academy, the pair of stars-gone-solo covered the Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now” and Iggy Pop’s “Lust For Life.”
Introducing Gallagher, Marr told the crowd: “I’d like to introduce someone who has been a friend of mine for 20 years. One of the greatest songwriters from this country. He’s a good man, I think he’s got a big future ahead of him. Mr Noel Gallagher.”
Marr was performing to support his latest record, this month’s Playland, and the NME notes his set consisted of “several Smiths classics and Electronic’s “Getting Away With It.'”
Gallagher’s new High Flying Birds album, Chasing Yesterday, drops in March.
