Crack open the Champagne (Supernova) – Liam Gallagher coming to the Brighton Centre on 15th December
LONDON, UK (31st Aug, 2017) – After playing sets full of emerging classics and old favourites at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, Liam Gallagher can now announce the first arena tour of his solo career.
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.
Fans who pre-order any format of Liam’s debut album ‘As You Were’ from his official site https://wbr.ec/liam-store will be able to access an exclusive 48-hour pre-sale on Ticketmaster.co.uk commencing at 10am on Wednesday 6th September.
The album will be released on digital (standard and deluxe), CD (standard and deluxe) and vinyl (standard 12” and limited edition coloured 12” formats) formats. A special box-set is also available which compiles a coloured 12” vinyl of the album, an exclusive 7” format of ‘For What It’s Worth’, a print designed by Klaus Voorman (the artist behind The Beatles’ ‘Revolver’ album cover) and additional collectors’ items.
After the pre-sale closes, tickets go on general sale from 10am on Friday September 8th priced from £36.50 http://brightoncentre.co.uk/whats-on/2017/liam-gallagher/
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.
