Liam Gallagher has let slip that he'd like to get grime star pal Skepta on the bill at his Finsbury Park gig
Liam Gallagher wants Skepta to perform at his Finsbury Park concert.
The 45-year-old rocker will top the bill at his own one-day festival at the London landmark where he last performed with Oasis back in 2002, and he's hoping it will be just as "dangerous".
In an interview with Dave Berry before his secret Absolute Radio gig at London's Bethnal Green Working Men's Club, he said: "I loved that gig, man. It was really f**king dangerous and I liked it. So hopefully we'll have a bit of the same."
And letting slip who he's looking to book for the gig, he said: "It can't all be 90s stuff, man.
"We've got to mix it up a bit. I'd like to get Skepta playing, have something a bit different."
The Britpop group's frontman took his 'bromance' with the grime star to the next level by buying him a birthday present, in September.
And he also invited the 'Shutdown' rapper to join him on stage to perform "that natural mystic tune" - which could be referring to late reggae legend Bob Marley's 1977 hit 'Natural Mystic', though it's not sure which song Liam is referring too - when he goes out on the road in December.
The 'For What It's Worth' singer celebrated his 45th birthday September 21, and Skepta reached out to the rocker to let him know he turned 35 just two days before him.
Much to Skepta's surprise, Liam wrote back telling him he's got him a gift and to "stay tuned".
After Liam tweeted: "Life begins at 45 then as you were LFUKING x (sic)"
Skepta replied: "F**k. Your birthday is 2 days after mine, yeah that makes sense. Happy new year brother as you were - SK (sic)"
And Liam wrote back: "Yes Virgo bro when you coming round my way I got a bday present for ya stay tuned there's a natural mystic blowing true the air as you were (sic)"
He continued: "I'm gonna do that natural mystic tune on my tour you up for getting up and down if your around LG x (sic)"
Skepta joked that he'll need to step up his security because a Liam and Skepta performance won't be "taken lightly".
The Londoner replied: "Of course. Tell security to double up, LG and Skepta together is not something to be taken lightly as you were - SK x (sic)"
Declaring his love for the 'That's Not Me' star, Liam previously said: "Man like Skepta keeping it real. Got to stand for something."
Liam kicks off his UK tour in support of his debut solo LP 'As You Were' on December 1 at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.
