On his Instagram account, Liam was happy to celebrate “the most important album of the 1990s” during this series of concerts in the United Kingdom and Ireland. It will begin in Sheffield, in the north of England, on June 1, 2024, and will end on June 27 in Manchester, the band’s hometown, after stops in London and Dublin.

According to the tour description, this will be the first time that Liam Gallagher, 51, will sing this entire album. Besides his hits like Rock ‘n’ Roll Star, Live Forever, Supersonic or Cigarettes & Alcoholsome lesser-known pieces will be sung on stage for the first time since the 1990s.

After years of bickering, yet another altercation in the summer of 2009 between Liam Gallagher and his brother Noel, backstage at the Parisian Rock en Seine festival, resulted in the immediate separation of the group formed in 1991 in Manchester.

Since then, the enemy brothers have long exchanged acidities via social networks or the press, before a relative lull in recent times, giving fans hope for a reconciliation.
“You should never say nevers,” Noel told the BBC last January. “It would take extraordinary circumstances“, he warned, however.

After the dazzling success of Definitely MaybeOasis had reached the peak of their popularity with their second album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? released in 1995, which includes the hits Wonderwall And Don’t Look Back in Anger. Five albums followed until the breakup. Since then, Liam and Noel, each solo or accompanied, have never achieved this level of popularity with their music.
