Liam Gallagher has announced he will be playing at Knebworth Park next June in what will be the biggest solo gig of his career
The rock and roll star confirmed today he will be playing at Knebworth Park next June in what will be the biggest solo gig of his career.
The news comes shortly after the 25th anniversary of the landmark concerts Oasis played at the venue over two nights in August 1996, which have been celebrated with a feature-length documentary.
During an appearance on Chris Moyle’s Radio X show on Friday morning, Liam also teased new music and revealed he’s dedicated a tune on his next album to brother Noel and said: “it’s a naughty little tune, but it’s lovely.”
Earlier this month the Oasis star hit the headlines by sharing that he’d fallen out of a helicopter, alongside a snap of him wearing a bandage on nose.
As he chatted to Moyles, Liam called the incident “an act of God” and his “nose has come back bigger and better”.
“You know when I fell out the helicopter the other day, I said it was an act of God. There are so many things that are coming back to me.
Chris responded: “Really?
“It was an act of God! My nose has come back bigger and better!” insisted he singer.
Chris said: “I mean the amount that you have done rock ‘n’ roll-wise and party-wise and then you injure yourself by falling out of a helicopter, it’s not right though is it?

The frontman told him: “I know. What a way to go, if it would have been. Tell you what, I wouldn’t have minded going that way. It’s better than slipping on a chopstick innit? Banging your head on the TV, remote control and all that, that’s a crap way to go innit? Falling out of a helicopter’s alright. I’d have bought that. If that was written in the stars, I’d have had that.”

He also told that one of the tracks on the album is dedicated to his brother who he had not reconciled with since Oasis split in 2009.
He said: “Right there’s a new one called, this next single is gonna be called ‘Better Days’ and it’s full of sunshine. And then there’s another one ‘I Wish I Had More Power’ and it’s dedicated to Noel. Yeah, it’s a naughty little tune, but it’s lovely.”
Discussing the Knebworth gig, Liam admitted “I am excited. I mean I’ve done it before and it was mega.
“And the beautiful thing about it is – obviously I can’t remember much of it – but I get the chance to do it again.
“And obviously I’m older and a little bit more wiser and I’m going to milk it, you know what I mean?
“I’m going to really take it in. I’m buzzing man. It’s like I said, it’s now or never, know what I mean?”
The musician announced on the show new studio album C’mon You Know will be released on May 27 next year.
He also announced his Knebworth show on Twitter, saying: “I’m absolutely buzzing to announce that on 4th June 2022 I’ll be playing Knebworth Park.
“It’s gonna be biblical. C’mon You Know.”
Gallagher will return to the stage at Knebworth Park on June 4, supported by Kasabian, Michael Kiwanuka, Fat White Family and Goat Girl.
Liam cancelled an upcoming performance in Belfast after revealing he had fallen out of the helicopter after headlining the music event.
He announced that due to damaging his nose in the accident he could not sing and has been advised by doctors to “rest up”.
