The Oasis man was "gutted" after walking off stage 20 minutes into his gig at the Chicago festival.
Liam Gallagher has apologised to fans at Lollapalooza for cutting his set at the Chicago festival short.
The rocker was halfway through his Greedy Soul track, where he appeared to walk off stage after getting into difficulty with his vocals.
Watch the moment he walked off here in a video posted to Oasis Mania:
Footage also saw fans chanting: "Fuck you Liam," after the band began to pack up their gear.

Following Liam's early exit, the music festival was hit by yet more controversy as the 400,000 attendees were asked to evacuate around 9pm, while headline acts Lorde and Muse were still playing.
Lorde was unimpressed by her departure, admitting she was "so gutted" for her fans because she had a "spectacular show" lined up.
Muse managed just three songs before they were made to depart, and frontman Matt Bellamy has called for festival bosses to book them for next year to make up for it.
Gutted. City/police made us leave the stage tonight 3 songs in at #Lollapalooza . Due to weather/lightning. Nightmare!— Matt Bellamy (@MattBellamy) August 4, 2017
Crowd awesome, we'll be back, hope lolla book us next year to make up.— Matt Bellamy (@MattBellamy) August 4, 2017
Liam Gallagher, may have not been able to finish his set last night, but his gig at Glastonbury festival saw him sing Don't Look Back In Anger for the first time ever, as a tribute to the victims of the Manchester and London terror attacks, and the Grenfell Tower Fire.
