A man has been arrested for climbing up a speaker tower during Liam Gallagher‘s show at TRNSMT Festival this weekend – forcing him to halt his set. Check out footage from the incident below.
However, Gallagher was forced to halt his main stage performance during ‘Cigarettes & Alcohol’ so that a fan could be brought down from one of the tall speaker towers.
“We’ve got a gig to do here, so you’re either going to f**king jump or come down,” said Gallagher as his set was interrupted.
The man was retrieved and then arrested for breach of the peace offences.
“Police can confirm that a 34-year-old man was arrested and charged with a breach of the peace after he climbed part of the speaker stack during the Liam Gallagher set at TRNSMT festival on Saturday 30 June 2018,” said police officials. “A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.”
They added: “There were six arrests at TRNSMT festival on Saturday 30 June 2018. Three were for public order offences, two for being in the possession of flares and one for being in the possession of a weapon.
“There were 33 people reported to the Procurator Fiscal for alleged drugs offences.”
Now, Gallagher will return to the studio to complete work on his ‘biblical’ second album.
He says he hopes to have the record finished by Christmas 2018.
“We’re halfway through the next album,” said Liam. “In between touring I’ve been in LA doing the next one and I reckon it’ll be done by Christmas. We’re flying through it. It’s with the same guys.”
He added: “I think we’ll do these albums and then I’ll have a bit of a break and get out of everyone’s hair – and have a breather – and then do a third one if the second one goes well.”
