Noel Gallagher reunited with ex-Oasis bandmate Gem Archer on stage at London's Royal Albert Hall last night (25.03.10).

The songwriter performed a semi-acoustic set for the Teenage Cancer Trust charity and was accompanied by the guitarist, the band's former keyboard player Jay Darlington and drummer Terry Kirkbride.

He treated the crowd to a set comprised of Oasis b-sides and stripped down greatest hits.

Noel - who was playing his first show sine quitting the band last August following a huge bust-up with brother Liam - opened with '(It's Good) To Be Free' and followed it up with 'Talk Tonight', the b-side to the band's first UK number one single 'Some Might Say'.

Highlights included 'Listen Up', 'Wonderwall', 'Slide Away', 'The Importance of Being Idle' and 'Cast No Shadow' and the sell-out crowd joined in, singing along to every track.

The 42-year-old musician was also backed by eight-piece all-female orchestra Wired Strings and the Crouch End Festival Chorus - who previously performed with Noel when Oasis headlined the BBC Electric Proms show in 2008 - on several songs.

Despite requests from some fans for new tracks, Noel insisted he wouldn't be debuting any songs.

He said: "We've already gone through that - we're not playing new songs. As f***ing brilliant as they are, now's not the right time or place. We don't do new ones for charity."

After an incredible rendition of 'Whatever' which united the crowd in a mass sing-along Noel returned for an encore of 'The Masterplan' and 'Don't Look Back In Anger'.

Before the start of the concert rumours were rife that Chris Martin would be joining Noel on stage, but the collaboration never materialised, although the Coldplay frontman was in the audience.

Noel was also watched music executive Alan McGee - who signed Oasis to his Creation Records label in May 1993.

The musician - who plays again tonight (26.03.10) - was supported by The Courtneers and the band's frontman Liam Fray paid tribute to the young cancer sufferers the annual gigs raise money for.

He said: "Next time you want to moan just think of these kids."

The charity - which was created by The Who 10 years ago - aims to provide specialist teenage cancer units at UK hospitals.
