Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher Dedicates Song To Daughter

Noel Gallagher dedicated a song to his daughter at his concert at The 02 arena in London last night (26.02.12).

Before playing 'Little by Little' the rocker revealed he was performing it for his 12-year-old daughter Anais - his child with ex-wife Meg Mathews - because it used to be her favourite Oasis track.

He told the sell-out crowd: ''I'm dedicating this to my daughter ... she said it was her favourite song when she was nine.''

Noel thrilled fans by playing a set loaded with songs from his debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' and Oasis tracks and he and his band were backed by the Crouch End Festival Chorus and the Hertfordshire Chorus.

Highlights included 'Everybody's on the Run', 'If I Had a Gun...', '(Stranded On) The Wrong Beach' and 'Freaky Teeth'.

An acoustic version of 'Supersonic' prompted a mass sing-along, as did 'Half the World Away' and 'The Death of You and Me'.

After he performed Oasis B-side 'Talk Tonight' one emotional fan at the front told Noel he loved him ''more than David Beckham''.

The 44-year-old musician said: ''Are you all enjoying yourself? I'm enjoying myself, I bet you're having a right f***ing laugh out there. You love me more than David Beckham, that's pure love. I love you too mate.''

However, some cheeky fans jokingly heckled Noel to play songs recorded by his brother Liam Gallagher's band Beady Eye.

Noel performed a four-track encore comprised of Oasis songs 'Whatever' - dedicated to the ''people at the back'' - Little by Little', The Importance of Being Idle' and 'Don't Look Back in Anger'.

Before playing his final song, Noel gestured to the 30-piece choir and said: ''I'd like a round of applause for the people at the back here. It's been an absolute pleasure to play for you. We'll see you somewhere down the road, thank you very much for coming tonight.''

The concert was broadcast live via satellite at select Vue Cinemas across the UK last night.
