Liam Gallagher on What To Expect From His Solo Show

Oasis' Liam Gallagher brings his solo show to the U.S. this weekend, playing on Sunday night (July 30) in Brooklyn as a warm-up for his two Lollapalooza performances next week in Chicago. 

Gallagher's first solo album, As You Were, doesn't come out until October 6, and while he's released a pair of singles from it -- "Wall Of Glass" and "Chinatown" -- he promises plenty of Oasis material as part of the shows:

"We're just going straight into the Oasis stuff. We start with 'Rock And Roll Star,' 'Morning Glory,' then we hit with 'Wall Of Glass.' then we do a bit of 'Greedy Soul,' 'Bold' and a couple of new ones, and then we do another two Oasis and then some more new ones, then we end on two Oasis songs. So everyone's getting a good...value for money."

 

After Lollapalooza Gallagher plays at the Osheaga Festival on August 5 in Montreal and has shows in Asia and Europe before returning to North America for a nine-show run in November.
