Gallagher will play at Atlantis, The Palm, in what will be the first of a series of ‘Live at Atlantis’ events this year, said organisers, the team behind the popular Sandance music festival. His set-list will include Oasis classics ‘Wonderwall’, ‘Supersonic’ and ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’, as well as material from his solo album, they said.

Tickets to the concert are priced at Dh250 (Early Bird), Dh295 (Advance. Dh350 at the door) and Dh500 (VIP). They will be on sale from February 11 on, and
