Reviewing Gallagher’s Manchester-inspired ‘This is the Place’ EP, NME wrote: “To quote Tony Walsh’s poem on the treasures of Manchester: “It’s ace, it’s the best and the songs that we sing, from the stands, from our bands, set the whole planet shaking”. While Gallagher’s done well to remember that, he’s gone back to his roots but taken them to strange new places.
“Imagine what Oasis could have been if they’d have had the bravery to match this bombast in their latter years.”
Gallagher also recently announced a huge one-off headline show at London’s Kenwood House for 2020.
