Liam Gallagher: ‘Beady Eye aren’t fucking scared of The Strokes’

Both bands set for Reading And Leeds Festivals this summer

Liam Gallagher has declared that he and his Beady Eye bandmates aren’t scared of the competition at this summer’s Reading And Leeds Festivals.

Beady Eye are set to headline the NME/Radio 1 Stage at the August events. The Strokes, Muse, My Chemical Romance and Pulp will all play Main Stage headline slots.

When asked about The Strokes Gallagher told NME: “We weren’t fucking scared of them the first time we heard them. We’re not fucking scared of them now!”


Speaking about how he thought he’d adapt to playing one of Beady Eye‘s first festival shows, he added: “I’ll comfortably fucking fit back into that dress.”
