Liam Gallagher added two new Oasis hits to his solo set list on Sunday night (29.10.17) performing 'Some Might Say' and 'Cigarettes and Alcohol' for the first time as a solo artist
Liam Gallagher performed Oasis hits 'Some Might Say' and 'Cigarettes and Alcohol' for the first time as a solo artist on Sunday (29.10.17).
The 44-year-old rocker hasn't sung the Britpop group's first UK number one single from their second studio album 1995's 'What's the Story (Morning Glory?)' live since 2002.
However, he treated fans at Samhain Festival in Dublin, Ireland over the weekend to a rendition of 'Some Might Say' for the first time in 15 years.
They also got the chance to hear 1994's 'Cigarettes and Alcohol' from their debut LP 'Definitely Maybe' for the first time since Liam performed the track with Beady Eye, the group he formed with former Oasis members Gem Archer, Andy Bell, and Chris Sharrock after his brother Noel Gallagher quit the band in 2009.
After the release of his number one solo album 'As You Were' earlier this month, Liam has introduced an equal balance of Oasis and solo songs into his setlist.
The crowd were also given the live debut of 'Come Back to Me', which Liam believes is one of the most "Oasis-y sounding" tracks on the hit record.
Speaking about the 10th track on the LP - which was co-written by Liam, Adele producer Greg Kurstin and songwriter Andrew Wyatt, who is known for his work with The Libertines' Carl Barat and Florence + The Machine - Liam said previously: It's another Oasis-y kinda sounding one. It started off sounding a bit 'I am the Walrus' it had a big mellotron on it, so we took that off as it was really Beatles-y - so we just played it with the guitars, and that's a monster now man."
