Liam said: “I was honoured to perform at the legendary showcase that is ‘MTV Unplugged’. It was a lovely experience and the people of Hull were biblical and sounded fantastic. I hope you enjoy the record. LG x”

The filmed, intimate and acoustic MTV concerts have been made legendary by the likes of NirvanaPearl JamPaul McCartneyJay Z and Gallagher’s former band Oasis, which saw Liam famously miss their show through illness in 1996.

It comes after Liam confirmed that he will be performing a free concert for NHS nurses and care workers this autumn.

Gallagher will hold the concert at London’s O2 Arena on October 29 as a thank you to NHS staff for their work during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
