Noel soldiers on with chest infection

Noel soldiers on with chest infection

Noel Gallagher has been performing with a chest infection on tour.

The musician is currently on his world tour to promote his new album 'Chasing Yesterday' but before his sell-out concert in Paris, France, last week he got ill with a cold which has got a lot worse.

However, rather than pull out of any gigs, Noel continued on the road and had antibiotics brought to him before his show in Milan, Italy, on Saturday night.

Bur rather than start taking the medication immediately, the renowned party lover decided to get drunk after he came off stage.

In a new blog post on his official website, entitled 'Tales From The Middle Of Nowhere Vol 3: The Good, The Bad And The Bubbly', Noel revealed: "Paris in the spring is quite frankly ... well just beautiful. LOVE that town. The sun was out. It was warm...all I'm missing is my girl. The gig was great too. Bit of a come down from all the razzmatazz of the big shows in the UK.

"Great crowd...some people actually flew in from The Lebanon especially for it, which was nice. Still got this bloody cold. It's starting to feel more like a chest infection now though. It's beginning to p**s me off. Good job Nancy is coming to Milan with some antibiotics...gotta clear this s**t up once and for all."

Discussing his post-Milan show celebration, he added: "Now I'm not sure what happened after that to be honest. I know I'm currently in Milan. Its been f***ing wonderful...it always is. It's fair to say The Italians love me and long may that continue 'cause I love them right back...the beautiful bastards.

"The gig was amazing, the kind of gig you'd never want to end. Easily my favourite so far. I would go into greater detail but I'll freely admit I'm suffering with a raging hangover.

"Nancy did arrive with the medication but she was cracking foxy and we somehow managed to get roaring drunk instead. I guess the meds can wait until tomorrow eh? I'm f***ed...can't believe I now have to go and do some live Italian TV?! Keep it livid yeah? ONWARDS. (sic)"

Rumours had been rife that Noel's younger brother and former Oasis bandmate Liam Gallagher was going to be at the Milan concert after the singer posted a photo of himself with an Access All Areas pass to a Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds show on his Twitter account on Saturday.

However, Noel, 47, made no mention of his 42-year-old sibling in his blog.

'In the Heat of the Moment' hitmaker Noel is due to perform at the Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, Germany, tonight.
