Liam Gallagher has announced a fresh date at Knebworth next year.
The former Oasis frontman shared his plans to play his biggest headline show to date at Knebworth Park on Saturday 4 June 2022 and now the Manchester legend has confirmed he'll also play the night before on Friday 3 June.
VIP and Camping packages are available.
I wanna thank everyone who bought tickets for my knebworth gig I fucking love n adore you if you didn’t get a ticket I’m gonna do another night this is history c’mon you know LG x pic.twitter.com/MMWIeSBPHX— Liam Gallagher (@liamgallagher) October 7, 2021
The gigs, which will now take place across two nights, mirror the two legendary shows Oasis played 25 years ago on the same grounds in August 1996.
Talking about how the 2022 Knebworth shows will compare to the 1996 dates, Liam told Chris Moyles: "I am excited, I mean I've done it before and it was mega. The beautiful thing about it is, I couldn't remember much about the first time.
"So I get the chance to do it again. Obviously I'm older and a little bit wiser. I'm gonna milk it, really take it in. I'm buzzin', man."
Making reference to his brother Noel's famous statement during the original gigs, he added: "It's gonna be 'This is history' - Part Two, mate!"
And the reason for doing the gigs again himself? Well, apparently it's all down to the younger generation of fans who missed it the first time around.
"The young folk want it," he explained. "They're always telling me, when are you gonna do this Knebworth thing? I think the time is now or never."
The gigs will also take place on the extended Bank Holiday weekend of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, which sees the nation mark the Monarch's 70 year reign between Thursday 2 and Sunday 5 June.
"We've got a long bank holiday," said Liam. "So people have plenty of time to recover from it."
