Liam posed for photos with delighted fans watching the band at the Etihad Stadium.
Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher caused a stir among fans as he turned up in Manchester yesterday to watch The Stone Roses.
The Live Forever and Wonderwall singer delighted revellers turning out to watch the Roses at the Etihad Stadium by posing for photographs.
In one cheeky snap he was seen licking a window as a fan looks on. In other photos he showed off a rather splendid colourful coat, his hair grown back into his trademark longer style.
One fan enthused in a photo shared on Instragram: “En route to the Roses and I meet this legend!”
Another fan, while pointing at Liam, says: “So this happened.”
Fans spread the word on Twitter that he was in town to see the Waterfall hitmakers, who play their final gig at the Etihad tonight, saying: “It’s official - Liam Gallagher is in Manchester to see The Stone Roses.”
Another tweeted: “First time in Manchester and I meet Liam Gallagher. Excited for the Stone Roses tonight. Everything is looking up.”
And even if they didn’t meet the actual Liam Gallagher, some fans thought they might have done, with one tweeting: “It’s hard to try and spot Liam Gallagher at a Stone Roses gig at the Etihad when everybody looks like Liam Gallagher. #stoneroses.”
Liam wasn’t the only Manc legend in town to watch the Stone Roses. Former Manchester United player David Beckham was there on Wednesday night.
Before playing This Is The One, Ian Brown announced to the crowd “This one is dedicated to Mr Beckham.”
After the show David and his 17-year-old son Brooklyn popped out for a curry in Longsight.
