Liam Gallagher continues to expand his upcoming UK arena tour ahead of the release of his debut solo studio album As You Were, which drops Oct. 6 via Warner/Parlophone. Due to “phenomenal demand,” the ex-Oasis lead vocalist has upgraded venues for his tour opener on Oct. 30 in Belfast, Ireland, from Ulster Hall to SSE Arena and has confirmed a new show on Nov. 1 in Newcastle, United Kingdom, at Metro Radio Arena.
NME reports on Sept. 7 that the “Wonderwall” hitmaker unveiled the news on Thursday via a Facebook update in response to brisk sales during pre-sales for the initial tour dates, which began Sept. 6. The ex-Beady Eye star's 11-city UK romp will bookend his first-ever North American solo tour, which kicks off Nov. 13 in San Francisco at The Warfield and concludes Nov. 30 in Philadelphia at Union Transfer.
Tickets for all shows, including Newcastle and Belfast, will go on sale to the public beginning Fri., Sept. 8 at 10:00 a.m. local time. For more information, click here.
As You Were was produced by Greg Kurstin and Dan Grech-Marguerat and features 12 tracks, including the singles “Wall of Glass,” Chinatown” and “For What It's Worth.” It is available for preorder here in a standard edition and deluxe editions in a CD, vinyl, as well as digital formats.
The controversial British alt-rocker has a couple of fall festival dates remaining prior to launching his solo runs through the UK and US. Stops include Sept. 9 in Madrid as part of Dcode Festival 2017, as well as Oct. 7 in San Bernardino, California, as part of Cal Jam 2017. Gallagher will wrap up his UK trek with a massive hometown show on Dec. 16 in Manchester, United Kingdom, at Manchester Arena before heading Down Under for a series of festival stops starting Dec. 31 in Lorne, Australia, as part of Falls Festival line up.
