Liam Gallagher announces his first solo gig will be in aid of Manchester victims

After revealing a hitherto-unseen fragile side to himself in a recent interview, Liam Gallagher has continued in the same vein by announcing that his debut solo gig will be in aid of the victims of the Manchester bombing.

The show will take place at the city’s famous O2 Ritz venue on Tuesday 30 May, and all profits will be donated to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which has been organised by Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross.

The gig will kick off a tour of small venues ahead of the release of his debut solo album, taking in London’s Electric Brixton, Dublin’s Olympia Theatre and Glasgow’s Barrowlands – you can get tickets here.

He has also announced that the title of the first track from his album will be ‘Wall of Glass’. The album title was previously revealed to be As You Were. You can pre-order the single here.

The press release reads: 

“If you had to make an equation of all the elements that made the early Oasis singles so apocalyptically good – huge waves of guitar hooks, a melody you can’t shake, a thunderous rhythm and Liam Gallagher’s voice delivering an unbelievably catchy chorus - then ‘Wall Of Glass’ would be the result. Boosted by a contemporary, bass-heavy production, it’s a track that provides a fresh new angle to Liam’s sound while maintaining the traits that made him such an influential artist. With undeniable power and a yearning menace, it’s hard to recall a time that Liam has sung better – it’s like hearing him for the first time.”

Here is a new photo of Liam looking moody:
