Phenomenal public demand for Liam Gallagher’s first solo arena tour saw all 100,000 tickets sell-out on the morning that they went on sale.
It proved to be such a hot ticket that the tour was extended with a date at Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena on December 1st, while the Belfast date has been upgraded to The SSE Arena.
Representing his first tour following the October 6th release of his debut solo album ‘As You Were’, the announcement comes as Liam is back at the height of his powers. His return has been nothing short of spectacular, from emotive scenes in Manchester to huge sing-a-longs at Glastonbury, while three new tracks – ‘Wall of Glass’, ‘Chinatown’ and ‘For What It’s Worth’ – are already establishing themselves as towering anthems, delivered with Liam’s once-in-a-lifetime vocal.
The album was released on digital, CD and vinyl formats with a special boxset available which compiles a coloured 12” vinyls, an exclusive 7” format of ‘For What It’s Worth’ and a print designed by Klaus Voorman, the artist behind The Beatles’ ‘Revolver’ album cover
Featuring a huge London show at Alexandra Palace and a homecoming gig at Manchester Arena, the tour dates are:
30th – Belfast, The SSE Arena (UPGRADED VENUE)

Liam wrote or co-wrote every song that features on ‘As You Were’. In addition to Dan Grech-Marguerat, other key collaborators include Greg Kurstin and Andrew Wyatt. One of the most striking aspects of the album is that all the songs have a purpose. There’s no flab, nothing to cut. They all feel directed at something or someone, setting the record straight or getting his side of the story over.
