Liam Gallagher has announced details of an intimate acoustic gig at London’s Union Chapel. Full dates and ticket details are below.
The former Oasis and Beady Eye turned solo star will be playing what looks set to be one of his final shows of 2018 by performing for homeless charity Shelter’s annual Christmas gig on Thursday December 13.
“No child should have to wake up homeless on Christmas day, which is why I’ll be playing a very special acoustic gig this December,” said Gallagher. “This gig will be a one-off; a chance to raise some money for all the great work Shelter does to stop homelessness.”
Fans hoping to attend can enter a ballot for a chance to purchase tickets here.
Successful applicants will then be informed from 10am on Monday October 1, when they’ll be able to purchase a ticket for £40. Entries close at 12pm on Friday September 28.

Gallagher only released his acclaimed debut album ‘As You Were‘ in October 2017, but he’s already at work on the follow-up and hopes to have it completed by the end of the year.
Due to releasing his music in such quick succession, Gallagher has stated that he plans to take some time off after that to “get out of everyone’s hair”, but remains open to making more solo records in the future if there is enough demand.
“We’re halfway through the next album,” he said back in June. “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.”
Gallagher made headlines last month when he and girlfriend Debbie Gwyther denied that he had assaulted her.
