The former Oasis rocker played a selection of songs at the inaugural festival, which celebrated the hit Brummie gangster series.

Liam Gallagher made a special appearance at The Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival on Saturday (14 September).

The former Oasis frontman teased he'd be heading down to the inaugural event earlier this week, first commenting on the festival's Instagram post: "Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday".

On the day itself, he then told his millions of Twitter followers: "Fix up look sharp The Gallaghers r on there way to drink and have fun with the Shelbys as you were LG x"

Paying tribute to the hit BBC drama by wearing his best peaked hat, Liam Gallagher took to the stage in the early evening to a packed out crowd.

The Shockwave singer performed songs from his forthcoming new album, Why Me? Why Not as well as Oasis favourites Columbia and Supersonic.

The Rock N Roll star made it a family affair bringing his sons Lennon and Gene, daughter Molly, brother Paul and girlfriend Debbie Gwyther to the gig.

The inaugural official gathering of Peaky Blinders fans and music enthusiasts was a raging success with punters, musicians and everyone in between involving themselves in the festivities and being transported to Birmingham in the 1920s.
