The Scottish rocker has shared a story about how he once brought the Oasis frontman to tears.

Fran Healy once revealed how he once made Liam Gallagher cry.

As the NME reported, the Travis frontman recalled a story about the former Oasis frontman during their show at London's Festival Hall on Tuesday (12 June 2018), while introducing their song Luv.

Speaking to the crowd at the 2,500 capacity venue, he explained: “We supported Oasis on the Be Here Now Tour in 1997, and it was like supporting The Rolling Stones they were so big back then".

Healy added: "I was walking backstage and Liam Gallagher was sat there in his round shades and he goes, ‘You come here’. So I went over and he goes, ‘Play me a song’.”

The Driftwood singer continued: “I was really nervous and I just picked up my guitar and started playing this next song. I couldn’t even look at him I was so nervous.

"When I finished playing the song I looked up and there were tears streaming down his face.”


Maybe Liam does have a softer side after all.

While the Gallagher brothers still very much appear to be at a stalemate, it appears things have warmed between Liam and his estranged daughter Molly Moorish after he met her for the first time in 19 years last summer.

Last month saw the Paper Crown singer share an image with himself and the 21-year-old model, who he shares with ex Lisa Moorish, alongside his two sons Lennon and Gene.
