Liam Gallagher has announced an intimate concert in London to celebrate the release of his upcoming live album “Knebworth 22”.
This summer, the singer-songwriter and former Oasis singer is releasing a live album of a concert at Knebworth in 2022. The concert was one of his biggest solo shows to date, to over 170,000 people over two nights.
Now, ahead of the album, Gallagher has announced that he will be holding one of his smallest concerts to date to celebrate the upcoming release. It will take place at the recently refurbished KOKO venue in London on 9th August.
The show will arrive two days before the album’s live release and the Manchester rock icon is expected to perform fan favorites from both his solo and Oasis discography.
For those looking to get their hands on tickets, a pre-sale will start on July 5th at 10am BST and will be made available to all fans who pre-order a copy of ‘Knebworth 22’ before 3pm on July 4th BST. The pre-sale access code will be sent by email at 17:00 BST on the same day.
Not only is the show one of Gallagher’s most intimate live shows of his 30-year career, it’s his only UK home gig scheduled for this summer.
Gallagher shared details of the upcoming live album earlier this month and revealed the news with a video of him performing ‘Roll It Over’ in concert.
The song is an Oasis fan favorite and originally appeared on the band’s fourth studio album, “Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants” (2000). Although the band have never performed the song live together, Liam performed it last year for the Knebworth Park concerts.
As well as the KOKO concert, the singer is scheduled to perform at other concerts in the UK later in the year, including an exclusive concert at Boardmasters festival on August 12.
In other news, Liam’s brother Noel confirmed earlier this year that Oasis will release a commemorative edition of their debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’ in 2024 to celebrate 30 years since its release.
Although the members do not appear to have any plans to reunite for the event, Liam announced last month that he had plans to play the album in its entirety in “a few bible venues” across the UK.
