Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds Gig Review

Noel Gallagher came, saw and conquered the crowd at BITEC Bangna with a set list of Oasis classics and plenty of songs from his recent Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds project.

Concert goers paid between 1000 and 3000thb to see The Gov’nor in action. The most enthusiastic gig goers (the kids) were at the back while in front of the stage the crowd was predominantly made up of expats and their partners. I would imagine it was a quite night at Nana Plaza tonight. Never the less we all came out to hear some much needed international live music in Bangkok and Noel certainly delivered a quality set and sounded in great voice.

Mr. Gallagher, is a man of few words. I guess he lets his songs do the talking for him but he did come out with a few gems between songs and even dedicated ‘Whatever’ to the sex tourists.

Crowd pleasers tonight were Everybody’s On The Run, If I Had a Gun, It’s Good To Be Free and not forgetting Don’t Look Back In Anger which was the final song of the evening. The sing-a-long chorus nearly took the roof of BITEC which incidentally lends itself to be a fine venue for international live bands. The only disappointment was no Wonderwall, maybe next time!

Rock N Rolla's

Congratulations to the team at RockNRolla the concert promoters who made this gig happen. More power to you for bringing international talent to Bangkok. We need more live music here. Can you have a word with the guys of Bush, I gotta get a fix of Machinehead!

Maroon 5 are the next international artists lined up to play a sell out show in Bangkok. Who do you want to see play in BKK? Let us know who and why in the comments below.

A word to Chang Beer: Have two bars in the reception hall, there’s plenty of space and have your beer on draught instead of those half cans. And more Chang girls are always welcome!

A word to BITEC: Arrange taxis to be at the venue after the gig. You have a great live music venue but we don’t want to stay there all night.

One of the few things I miss about no longer living in England is the banter you have with your mates and random strangers in the pub. Although this is changing a little for me now as I’m making a conservative effort to ‘do more networking’.

Bangkok Guest BloggerFor a large part of the day I work alone and as I live in a predominantly Thai area of Bangkok, I have little in the way of any deep interactions. Some days no more than a friendly ‘sawatdii’ or ‘bpen ngai baang’. Maybe I should work in more bars and coffee shops. I must be getting lazy or to comfortable in my old age! In fact one of the great things about Bangkok is there is an abundance of free Wi-Fi around the city. London lags a long way behind on this and is another reason why Thailand make an ideal destination to be an online marketer.

One of the ideas behind this blog was to help other people who are in similar circumstances or who are looking to make the move and start a new life living and working in Thailand. When you move to any new city, especially a big city like Bangkok with all it’s alien cultures and customs you can’t help but feel like a stranger in a strange land. It’s always good to know one or two people who can offer help and advice and help you settle in so you can hit the ground running and start enjoying yourself.

I don’t know how often I will be writing on this blog but I do have good intentions to do it regularly. With a little  self discipline I intend to write several times a week… I think. (OK, I’ve put down in writing so you can hold me to it now!) But at the end of the day it’s a labour of love and I don’t want it to become a chore. With that being said, I also don’t want this blog to be some boring rant about my life or any of that nonsense. I’ve read to many narcissistic and masochistic  blog posts about Thai girls by jaded white guys and don’t want to go down that route. I want this blog to be a community where other bloggers, readers and Internet marketers can make a positive contribution to the community, stimulate conversation and if you’re a product or service owner provide a special deal for the readers.
