All of the proceeds from Liam Gallagher's intimate solo shows will go towards the victims of the Manchester attack.
Previously speaking to the Manchester Evening News, the outspoken rocker talked about the horrific terror attack, which saw 22 people killed at the Manchester Arena on Monday (22 May), and said it would be "tough" to sing some classic Oasis tracks because of it.
“Yeah, it changes things,” he told the outlet. “Some of the songs on the night are going to take on a different meaning. You do fall into the trap of getting up every night on tour and just doing it. But songs like Live Forever are going to be tough ones to sing on Tuesday.
“It’s going to be sad, but at the end of the day we have to keep moving. We need to enjoy life and we can’t let some evil **** take that away. We’ll be trying to lift people. Otherwise the poor kids who died at the gig have died in vain.”
Oasis anthem Don't Look Back In Anger has since become somewhat of a tribute track to the victims of the attack, with everyone from mourners singing it at the vigil in Manchester's St Ann's Square, to The Courteeners' Liam Fray performing it on stage.
Watch the crowd sing the track below:
