A Hull couple who have tickets to see Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have described the “fantastic” moment they met the main man himself before the gig.
Tarah Field, 26, and her fiancée Dan Baldwin, 32, who live just off Wellington Street, will be heading to the Bonus Arena tonight to watch Noel Gallagher live on stage.
The pair managed to make a short trip to the arena for his arrival, along with many other fanatic fans, who mobbed the Brit Pop superstar as he made his way to the venue.
Tarah said: “It was fantastic. There must have been about 50 people running towards him. It was a mad sprint. Everyone was getting excited.
“We managed to talk to him but it was very quick. Everyone was lined up against the fence and he went by everyone signing autographs and having a quick chat. I got a bit shy.”
Fiancee Dan, who has been a mad fan since Oasis were at their peak in the 90’s, was delighted he would finally see “one of the biggest acts in the world” live, and he got a typical Noel response when he spoke to him.
“I said how glad I was to meet him and he just said, ‘yeah nice one innit’,” said Dan.
“He was friendly and warm to everyone and he made sure everybody who turned up got what they came for.
“It is really exciting. I never thought that now I’d be going down the end of the street to see one of the biggest acts in the world playing live in Hull.”
