FORMER Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft will join Oasis star Noel Gallagher at a gig in the Middle East.

The former Winstanley College student will perform at the Live at Atlantis event in Saudi on Friday, March 15.

Ashcroft’s performance at the Sandance festival two years ago is still singled out as one of the festival’s best.

He will be supporting Noel Gallagher with a solo acoustic set, while BBC Radio One presenter and Ibiza Rocks Musical Director Zane Lowe will return.
