Russell Brand and Noel Gallagher reunite for Xfm shows
The notorious dream team are back to celebrate the Teenage Cancer Trust dates...
Russell Brand is to return to Xfm next month... and he's reuniting with his old friend Noel Gallagher for a special series of shows to mark this year's Teenage Cancer Trust gigs.
The pair are to helm a new programme in the lead up to the week-long set of dates for the charity - the first time in seven years that they've worked with producer Matt Morgan and poet Mr Gee.
Noel told Xfm presenter and Sun columnist Gordon Smart: "Xfm asked me if I wanted to do my own radio show leading up to this year's TCT concerts. I said, I have a better idea. Why don't we resurrect whats-his-name's career? That hairy skinny-legged yogameister, Rustle Brand? Last seen shaming the nation at them Olympics…
"It'll be great to remind people how colossal me, Matt Morgan and Mr Gee were on that bloody show before 'Arthur' got us all the sack. Tune in and see if I'm wrong."
Russell told Gordon: "I miss radio. It was lovely when we did the show. It'll be great to get the old team back together."
This was the show that landed Jonathan Ross and Brand in trouble over the whole Andrew Sachs "Sachsgate" affair. Xfm is excited, ecstatic, pleased - and ever so slightly nervous - at welcoming the Brand/Gallagher team back into our studios.
Noel has curated this year's Teenage Cancer Trust dates, which include performances by Primal Scream, Kasabian, Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon and an evening of comedy featuring Russell Brand, Noel Fielding and more.
The Xfm shows will make a fine prelude to an incredible run of gigs at the Royal Albert Hall.
It's going to be unmissable, and takes place in late March. The TCT shows start on March 19 and run through to March 24.
