Liam Gallagher tells fans to 'get off the fence' during the show
Beady Eye made their live debut in Glasgow tonight (March 3) – playing for just over an hour to a packed crowd at the city’s Barrowlands venue.
Stage-banter was kept to a minimum by Liam Gallagher‘s new band throughout the 14-song show, and the singer made no reference to his estranged brother Noel or his old band Oasis.
Beady Eye‘s first song was ‘Four Letter Word’, played shortly after 9pm (GMT). They followed it with a set made up largely of tracks from their new album ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’. Before playing debut single ‘Bring The Light’, Gallagher did address the crowd, saying: “Right, I reckon it’s time to get off the fence, yeah? Because I’ve seen a few of you sitting on it.”
The Scottish audience reacted positively to the band throughout, chanting Gallagher‘s name in between each song. Although most of the tracks the band played were faithful in sound to their recorded counterparts, the Andy Bell-penned ‘Millionaire’ was given a distinctly more electric-feel than on the album.
The band ended their set with their cover of World Of Twist‘s ‘Sons Of The Stage’. Gallagher thanked the crowd for “coming along and checking it out” before leaving the stage.
Beady Eye played:
‘Four Letter Word’
‘Beatles And Stones’
‘Wind Up Dream’
‘Bring The Light’
‘Standing On The Edge Of The Noise’
‘Kill For A Dream’
‘Three Ring Circus’
‘Man Of Misery’
‘The Beat Goes On’
‘The Morning Sun’
‘Sons Of The Stage’
Beady Eye play their next gig, also at the Barrowlands venue, tomorrow evening (March 4), after which they head to Manchester and London for more shows.
Meanwhile, Gallagher has spoken about the chart position of the band’s debut single ‘The Roller’, saying its Number 31 peak in the UK singles chart gave him a “reality check”.
