Liam Gallagher to kick-off UK Tour in Belfast

Liam Gallagher

Liam Gallagher will open his 10-date UK Tour at Belfast’s Ulster Hall on 30 October.

The former Oasis frontman releases his debut solo album ‘As You Were’ on 6 October, which will see him go ‘head to head’ with brother Noel, with his band High Flying Birds set to release their next album in early November.

It will be Liam’s first big solo tour following a handful of small gigs and festival appearances in recent months – including a show at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre in June.

His Belfast show will be followed by gigs in Leeds, Glasgow, Plymouth, London, Nottingham, Birmingham, Cardiff and Brighton, before a homecoming show in Manchester.

 

As well as tracks from his new album, Gallagher has also been playing a number of Oasis classics during recent shows, including ‘Wonderwall’, ‘Morning Glory’, ‘Rock N’ Roll Star’, ‘Slide Away’ and ‘D’You Know What I Mean’.

Gallagher Tweeted: “Every single Oasis song that I sang is potentially on the setlist for December tour”.

“[I only sing Oasis songs] when I’m rehearsing it, or if it comes on in a pub or in the car,” he told NME earlier his year. “Turn it up, man.”

He added: “Every one I’m doing, I’m doing because I like singing it.”

Gallagher has revealed that he will definitely be performing ‘Rock ’N’ Roll Star’ and ‘D’You Know What I Mean?’.

Speaking of the latter, he said he’d be playing “all seven minutes of it. I’m not doing it for the ‘Be Here Now’ anniversary. I couldn’t give a f**k.”

Noel Gallagher

Of his rivalry with Noel and their forthcoming alum head-to-head Liam told Q Magazine “it’s like we’ve come full circle.”

He added: “We’ve slagged off every f**king band in the universe, and now me and him are going head to head.

“I’m sure his record is gonna be great, man, but I feel double proud of mine, really confident.

I do exactly what it says on the tin. I’m here to give the people what they want.”

Since Oasis disbanded in 2009, Gallagher has fronted rock group Beady Eye.

Tickets for Gallagher’s UK Tour are set to go on sale from Friday (8 September) at 10am from Ticketmaster and the Ulster Hall website.

Fans who pre-order the album from Gallagher’s official site will receive exclusive access to tickets on Ticketmaster from 6 September, 48 hours earlier than they go on general sale.
