Setlist:

Liam Gallagher always treats fans to a healthy dose of Oasis tracks throughout his gigs, there's no doubt we can expect much of the same this Saturday.

We might even get a dose of a rare performance such as D'Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman?, which he played at Finsbury Park, or even a Beady Eye song, like he did at Hungary's Sziget Festival.

Oh, and it's not too far-fetched to imagine his Oasis mate Bonehead popping by.

Watch Liam Gallagher play D'Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman? for the first time since 1996:
