Noel Gallagher cancels NZ shows due to equipment problems

By | March 26, 2016

Noel Gallagher cancelled his Thursday show in New Zealand after his equipment did not arrive to the country on time.

The former Oasis member was set to perform at the ASB Theater in Auckland, but needed to cancel the show because the flight where his musical gear was being transported on hit stormy weather in Chile.

The 48-year-old musician took to Instagram to explain: “Not that any of it was my fault but I feel compelled to extend my apologies to those who were looking forward to the show tonight.(me included!!!!) Circumstances beyond our control have scuppered what was going to be my 1st proper gig in NZ since 97/98! Apologies again.”

A representative for Gallagher also added that the team is disappointed to come all the way to New Zealand and not be able to do the much-awaited show.

“Despite our crew working on alternatives since the early hours of this morning there is too much equipment missing so we have regrettably taken the decision to cancel the performance,” the spokesperson said.

Gallagher then updated his Instagram on Saturday to let his fans in Australia know that he has arrived in the country for his Sydney show. His instruments have also arrived.

Posting a photo of seven guitars, he wrote: “It’s on you f**kers!! The Eagles have landed. Now you’ve given me my guitars back I can thank the people what came to see me in Chile. I was only in your country for 5 hours but I felt the love man!!(We shan’t mention guitar gate again..although someone in Chile does owe someone in NZ an apology. I’ll leave you to work it out amongst yourselves.) See you later you drongo’s!!”
