Liam Gallagher is set to make his first public appearance since the news of Beady Eye’s split at a special Teenage Cancer Trust charity gig in London next month.
Gallagher will be one of a list of musicians performing Who classics at Shepherds Bush Empire on November 11 with each artist performing a song of their own choice from the band’s back catalogue.
Other artists who will perform with The Who Band on the night will be Pearl Jam‘s Eddie Vedder, Wilko Johnson, Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson, Manic Street Preachers‘ James Dean Bradfield, Geddy Lee of Rush, The Strypes, Brody Dalle, Tom Odell, Amy Macdonald, Andy Burrows and Rizzle Kicks.
The Who’s Band feature Simon Townshend, Pino Palladino, Billy Nicholls, Frank Simes, Loren Gold, John Coury and drummer Zak Starkey, who played with Liam Gallagher in Oasis. Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey will take a back seat for the occasion as others perform in their place.
Gallagher confirmed via Twitter on Saturday (October 25) that Beady Eye have split. The band were fronted by Liam Gallagher and featured former Oasis members Andy Bell and Gem Archer. Andy Bell has also tweeted about the split, telling fans that he “had a blast” with the band.
Tickets for An Evening Of Who Music In Aid Of Teenage Cancer Trust are on sale from 9am Friday October 31 via Ticketmaster .
