Liam Gallagher made his live return last night with an anticipated show for NHS workers at The O2 in London.
The show, which marked the first public gig from the former Oasis singer in 18 months, rewarded NHS workers for their efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.
Liam kicked off his live comeback with Oasis staple ‘Hello’, before heading straight into a barnstorming rendition of ‘Morning Glory’.
Gallagher paid tribute to the “very sophisticated crowd” of NHS workers, hailing the “doctors, nurses and drug dealers” as “my kind of people”. He also used his time on stage to call for NHS workers to get a pay-rise, as well as welcoming the event as a rare one without ticket touts.
While the rest of the gig saw Liam flitting between Oasis’ back catalogue and his own solo albums, a special encore saw him performing ‘Go Let It Out’. It marked the first time he has performed the iconic Oasis track as a solo artist and the first time overall since 2002.
You can watch that performance, and a selection of other performances from the gig below.
Liam will now play headline sets at Reading & Leeds festival over the August Bank Holiday.
That’s followed by headline sets at Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival and Isle of Wight Festival in September, and a one-off date at Belfast’s Ormeau Park for Belsonic Festival.
