NOEL GALLAGHER isn’t just a top caner — he’s brilliant at his day job too.

The Oasis legend played a 45-minute set at Koko in North London on Thursday in RUSSELL BRAND’s fundraiser For Pities Sake.

The comedian coaxed his showbiz pal into performing after striking up a friendship on his BBC 6 show.

And when Noel bowled up on stage he tamed the lager-fuelled crowd at once.
He even received warm applause from brother LIAM, watching from a balcony with Noel’s girlfriend and top lass SARA MacDONALD.

The opening act THE HOLLOWAYS were drowned out by the raucous crowd screaming “Li-am, Li-am” and also chanting for Noel.

KELLY OSBOURNE didn’t help matters by showing up at the side of the stage in a revealing top and giving a single-finger salute to fans at the front.

DIRTY PRETTY THINGS star CARL BARAT played an impressive acoustic set. The highlight was a cover of THE CHARLATANS’ North Country Boy with TIM BURGESS on guest vocals.

But Noel was the show-stopper, serving up the ultimate football terrace sing-along with backing vocals from every voice in the packed audience.

He played classics Wonderwall, Don’t Look Back In Anger and brilliant B-side Talk Tonight.

As if that wasn’t enough, PAUL WELLER joined him on stage too.

The tickets were £50. Another zero on the price would have been worth it.
