Noel Gallagher has said he would be ”bang up” for creating an Oasis hologram show after watching ABBA Voyage.

ABBA’s avatar live show is continuing to run at the bespoke ABBA Arena in east London following its launch in mid-2022.

Speaking to the Matt Morgan podcast, Gallagher called the show ”fucking unbelievable” and made it clear that he would be interested in creating something similar for Oasis.

“I went to see that ABBA show. Have you been? It’s fucking unbelievable,” Gallagher told Morgan. “It was great – an hour and a half gig. It was very, very impressive. I genuinely thought at one point that the people on the stage, which were holograms, were… they looked that real that I thought they were actors, like playing. The way they walk to the stage is so realistic. If you ever get the chance to go, it’s well worth it.”

Gallagher added: “I was very impressed by it to be honest but yeah, if anybody wants to do an Oasis one, give us a shout. I would be bang up for it. I’d say ‘great’, speak to that guy over there and then come up with a figure and then he’ll relay it to me and I’ll say either yes or no.”

Reviewing the show’s premiere, Rolling Stone UK said: “What the producers, and the band themselves, have done with the show is groundbreaking, and will likely transform live music (though whether that’s for better or worse is still up for debate). Last night, though – and for the rest of ABBA’s residency – we can, once again, just be thankful for the music.”

Reflecting on the first year of the show, Björn Ulvaeus told us: “It’s been a success beyond everyone’s expectations and it’s had such impact too, because it’s such a technological milestone. Everybody says that the technology could change live music and I guess it certainly has done something to the image of ABBA. I think we’re in the front of trying to do new daring things and I think that’s good.”
