Liam Gallagher Announces First Solo Gig


The Oasis frontman claimed that he was working on a debut solo album during the screenings of Mat Whitecross documentary Supersonic - and now he's about to prove it live.

Liam Gallagher is set to perform his first solo show - in aid of a music charity for young people.

The former Oasis frontman revealed that he was working on a debut solo album during the Manchester screening of Mat Whitecross documentary Supersonic earlier this year, and has reportedly signed a deal with label Warner Bros to release his first album next year.

He'll perform as part of the Give A Gig Week, which raises funds by putting on 100 shows in a week to support 75,000 young people working in 350 youth music projects around England.

The show will take place at London's Bush Hall on March 28, 2017, and the bill includes more star appearances from Jess Glynne, Tom Odell, and rapper Plan B.

Give a Gig Week 2017 runs across venues in the capital from March 24-31, with shows taking place at Bush Hall, Shepherd’s Bush Empire, The Bedford, The Roundhouse, and the Hard Rock Café.

Speaking to Music Week today, Youth Music's chief exec Matt Griffiths said: “ I’m really encouraged to see the music industry getting behind Give a Gig Week to help us transform the lives of more disadvantaged young people through music.

"The industry has a long history of supporting charities and we’re heartened to see our work at Youth Music being acknowledged."

Oasis fans had hoped the big Gallagher news next year would be their long awaited reunion and a Glastonbury headline spot. In fact, suspicion was so high that last month one bookmaker took its odds on an Oasis reunion off - because of an increase in big money bets.

Gamblers increasingly optimistic that the Gallagher brothers will bury the hatchet next year led Betway to remove odds of 5/4 on the band getting back together in 2017 because of a "significant number of new accounts placing maximum bets".

Reports also emerged that the Manchester band had started booking support bands for a potential reunion tour after Australia's Noise11 claimed to have insider information from a "UK rock band from the 90s with a very close connection to Liam Gallagher".

So far, it looks like that isn't not part of Liam's masterplan...
