Liam Gallagher debuts new song ‘The World Is in Need’ at intimate Blackburn gig

LG also played recent single 'Better Days' for the first time

Liam Gallagher debuted a new track called ‘The World Is in Need’ during an intimate live show last night (April 27). Check out fan-shot footage and the setlist below.

The former Oasis frontman took to the stage at the 1800-capacity King George’s Hall in Blackburn to launch his new Adidas trainers, the LG2SPZLs. All proceeds from the gig went to Nightsafe, a local homeless charity.

Kicking off the 17-song set with Oasis’ ‘Hello’, Gallagher went on to play various classics by his former band including ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Star’, ‘Slide Away’, ‘Live Forever’ and ‘Wonderwall’ (via Setlist.FM).


Midway through the concert, LG performed his latest single ‘Better Days’ for the very first time. He dedicated the track to his bandmate Bonehead, who’s currently taking a break from touring as he receives treatment for tonsil cancer.

Gallagher later treated the small audience to a new song, ‘The World Is in Need’, which is due to appear on his third solo album ‘C’mon You Know’. There were also outings for lead single ‘Everything’s Electric’ and the upcoming record’s title track.
