Liam Gallagher will perform with The Who Band next month.
The 'Live Forever' hitmaker will make his first appearance since he announced his group Beady Eye had split at the special Teenage Cancer Trust charity gig at London's Shepherds Bush Empire on November 11.
A string of stars including Manic Street Preachers' James Dean Bradfield, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Wilko Johnson, Tom Odell, Rizzle Kicks, Amy Macdonald, Geddy Lee of Rush, Brody Dalle, The Strypes, Andy Burrows and Ricky Wilson will join forces with the band to perform their favourite track from The Who's extensive back catalogue.
The Who Band includes Simon Townshend, Pino Palladino, Billy Nicholls, Frank Simes, Loren Gold, John Coury and Zak Starkey, who played with Liam in Oasis.
Tickets for An Evening Of Who Music In Aid Of Teenage Cancer Trust go on sale on Friday (31.10.14).
Liam announced on Saturday (25.10.14) that Beady Eye were going their separate ways.
He tweeted: "Beady Eye are no longer. Thanks for all your support. LGx (sic)."
Beady Eye formed in 2009 after Liam, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock decided they still wanted to make music together following the split of Oasis earlier that year when the singer's brother Noel acrimoniously quit the group in August 2009. .
