Noel Gallagher has said that he was thoroughly searched three times at the Coachella festival.
The musician was stopped by security while trying to get into the Palm Springs event on Saturday (April 14) ahead of his live performance.
Security officials became concerned after they found 30 white and yellow sleeping pills on his person.
He told The Sun, “We got body-searched coming in. It was like an airport. It is me, I suppose, so they might know the history.”
“They pulled out my sleeping tablets and asked me to explain them. There were about 30 little yellow and white tablets.
“I said, ‘In all seriousness Chuck, or whatever your name is, do you not think these would at least be down my sock? They are sleeping tablets. What do you want me to do? Take one before I go on stage to prove what they are?'”
Last night (April 15), Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds made their Coachella debut appearance, with Gallagher dedicating ‘Half The World Away’ to all the Brits in the audience.
Gallagher also played Oasis tracks ‘Little By Little’ and ‘Talk Tonight’ and closed the night with ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’.
