NOASIS Liam Gallagher
Olympia theatre Dublin 8pm ¤36.50/¤30.90 (sold out) ticketmaster.ie Over 20 years of Liam Gallagher might be 20 years too much, but even his most vehement fans would have to admit that he was once one of rock music’s most insolent vocalists. Whether that has changed remains to be seen. Since the demise in 2014 of Beady Eye (“Stratford’s finest Oasis tribute band,” quipped big brother Noel), Liam has been more than satisfied to bombard his older brother with tweets, yet he has also found the time to record a debut solo album - As you Were is scheduled for release in the autumn, but a lead song, Wall of Glass, was released last week. We have no idea what the album will be like, but it’s known that Gallagher has collaborated with professional songwriters such as Greg Kurstin. Gallagher has admitted that Oasis songs will make up the majority of his solo gigs. As you were, indeed. TCL
