Russell Brand and Noel Gallagher to open a bar

RUSSELL Brand and Noel Gallagher are planning to open a talent bar.

The comedian and the former Oasis star want to give upcoming artists the opportunity to showcase their skills in a new private members spot in north London.

It's thought the pair are hoping to replicate the success of arty club Boogaloo in Highgate which is known for its trendy atmosphere and live music.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "The plan is to start a private members forum that will attract young professionals and upcoming artists to show off their talents. It was Russell's idea but Noel is fully behind it."

The duo have been friends for years with Russell even delivering a speech at Noel's wedding to Sara McDonald in 2011.

Russell shared a table with Noel at the GQ Awards in September, where the 'Get Him to the Greek' star picked up the Oracle of the Year award, and he managed to make a jibe at the singer during the ceremony.

He said: "Oracle? That's got to be a made up award so I would turn up. It was also a great source of news when I was growing up, alongside Teletext.

"I would like to thank that pixelated news source and say to Noel, good luck being more offensive than that son!"
