Garbage & Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds at Talking Stick Resort Amphitheatre

June 11, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Since releasing their eponymous debut album in 1995, Garbage – composed of Shirley Manson, Duke Erikson, Steve Market and Butch Vig – has blazed a distinct sonic trail. With a passel of hits including “Stupid Girl,” “Push It,” “Only Happy When it Rains” and “I Think I’m Paranoid,” they’ve garnered consistent critical acclaim as well as seven Grammy nominations along the way to 17 million albums sold. The band’s ferocious new album No Gods No Masters continues to expand their musical vision. The 11-track collection is by turns brutal and beautiful, a celebration of the sonic maelstrom and a triumph of silence, sometimes within the space of a single song. “This is our seventh record, the significant numerology of which affected the DNA of its content: the seven virtues, the seven sorrows, and the seven deadly sins,” says Manson, the band’s iconic frontwoman. No Gods No Masters is a big, bold and indignant record – overtly political and socially charged in a way that the band has not been before, with songs touching on themes ranging from global unrest and encroaching climate change, the Black Lives Matter movement, sexism and misogyny. The result is the perfect soundtrack for a fraught moment from a band that has been making its unique mark for nearly 30 years – a record that could only have come from the intimate relationship between musicians who have matured and grown together over the course of their careers.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds first emerged in October 2011 with their eponymous album which went double platinum in the UK selling over 2.5 million copies worldwide. In the two decades prior, Noel Gallagher was main songwriter, lead guitarist and occasional lead vocalist of Oasis, one of the biggest and most loved UK bands. By the time a 2nd album was due for release, NGHFB had already played 150 live shows in 32 countries. ‘Chasing Yesterday’ was released in March 2015, followed by another 122 shows across 28 countries. The 3rd studio album, ‘Who Built The Moon?’, was recorded with renowned producer and composer David Holmes and released in November 2017. The live appearances continued throughout 2019 including tours of the USA and Australia with Smashing Pumpkins and U2 respectively. Noel once again challenged industry norms releasing a series of critically acclaimed multi-genre EP’s throughout 2019 & 2020. June 2021 saw the release of ‘Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-2021)’ – a Best Of celebrating a decade of the band, curated by Noel. This was NGHFB’s 4th consecutive No.1 album and the 12th across Noel’s career. In Summer 2022, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds completed a nationwide tour of outdoor shows, culminating with an epic set on Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage to one of the weekend’s biggest crowds. NGHFB recently released new singles ‘Pretty Boy’, ‘Easy Now’ & ‘Council Skies’ taken from the studio album ‘Council Skies’, out June 2, 2023.
