Noel Gallagher to Support U2, Bono’s Son to Support Gallagher in UK

Noel Gallagher is expected to be announced as the special guest of U2 when their ‘The Joshua Tree’ Australian tour is announced this week.

Gallagher and Bono are old friends, so much so that Bono has asked Gallagher to take his son Elijah Hewson’s band Inhaler on tour to open for Noel’s UK summer tour.

Inhaler is Robert Keating on Bass, Ryan McMahon on Drums, Josh Jenkinson on Lead and Elijah Hewson on Vocals and Rhythm. The four band members were all students at the same school. They describe their music as “dirty bass lines, pounding rhythms and infectious melodies infused with psychedelic soundscapes far outweighed their interest for Pythagoras’s theorem, e=mc², The Merchant Of Venice and Ulysses”.

Inhaler

The Noel Gallagher dates with Inhaler start June 7 in Manchester and included a hometown gig for Inhaler on June 16 in Dublin.

The U2 The Joshua Tree tour is expected to reach Australia in November. The U2 setlist will include the entire ‘The Joshua Tree’ album from start to finish.

‘The Joshua Tree’, released in 1987, was U2’s biggest selling album worldwide but not in Australia. ‘The Joshua Tree’ sales worldwide are estimated at over 25 million. However, in Australia, the album peaked at number three while other major markets including the UK and USA charted it at number one.

‘The Joshua Tree’ sold over 350,000 copies in Australia (5 times Platinum). U2’s biggest album in Australia is ‘Rattle and Hum’ with over 500,000 sales (7 times Platinum).

The U2 The Joshua Tree tracklist

“Where the Streets Have No Name”
“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”
“With or Without You”
“Bullet the Blue Sky”
“Running to Stand Still”
“Red Hill Mining Town”
“In God’s Country”
“Trip Through Your Wires”
“One Tree Hill”
