Lest we forget, Noely G and the boys are in Dublin today week for an O2 show that finds them supported by Cashier No. 9.
As good as the Gallagher boy’s vid is, it’s not interactive like the redhotchilipeppers.com/news/301-look-around-interactive-video one that the Chilis have produced for their ‘Look Around’ single.
