Noel: Being solo's been a doddle!

Noel Gallagher has confessed he's finding his solo performances much easier than expected.

The former Oasis guitarist, who quit the group in 2009, had been concerned about going on stage without brother Liam and his ex-bandmates.

But in a blog for The Huffington Post, he wrote: "On to London for three shows on three consecutive nights at three different venues. The first being the Hammersmith Apollo. I liked it. It was easy. Maybe a little too easy.

"I have to say I thought it'd take a lot longer to get everything up to speed. It's already become very enjoyable and we've only done six gigs."

Noel - whose debut solo release Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds shot to the top of the charts - also revealed he's been living the rock n' roll life by running up a huge bar tab after a post-gig party.

"(We) took over a small but perfectly formed nightclub in the West End," he wrote.

"We were asked to leave at the crack of dawn with a £7k bar bill!!!!!

"A proper good effort that. Needless to say the last 2 days have been spent on the verge of a nervous breakdown. All good though and it was well worth it."
