What B-sides will Liam Gallagher play at his Definitely Maybe 30th anniversary tour dates?
Liam Gallagher told fans not only would he be playing Definitely Maybe in full, but he'd also be treating fans to B-sides from the era, but just which B-sides can we expect to hear? He's already given us some indication online. Get our roundup of some of the possible tracks he could choose from below.
Oasis - Fade Away (Official Lyric Video)
This early Oasis track appeared as the B-side to Cigarettes and Alcohol when it was released in October in 1994 and it's remained a fan favourite ever since.

D'Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman?
D'Yer Wanna Be A Spaceman?
One of the songs that appeared on the original Oasis demo tape back in 1993, this Noel-sung tune originally appeared on the back of the Shakermaker single in June 1994, two months before the release of Definitely Maybe.
Liam also has previously performed the track live during his solo sets, so it would make sense for him to dust it off again.
I Am The Walrus
A live cover of The Beatles song also features on the B-side to Cigarettes & Alcohol and was performed live several times by the band while they were together.

Liam has already promised a fan he will "stick" it on the setlist as well.

Featuring on the B-side of Supersonic, the 1993 track is a firm favourite with Oasis fans and has been performed by Liam during his solo career, like when he played a special Radio X Presents gig for us in Manchester above (21:30).
Up In The Sky
Oasis - Up In The Sky (Official Lyric Video)
The Live Forever B-side is one of the lesser-known Oasis tracks, so would be sure to be a treat for die hard fans. However, it also sees Liam use his falsetto, so might be slightly harder to pull off live 30 years later.
Also on the B-side to Live Forever, Cloudburst is often considered as one of the most underrated of Oasis tracks. Could LG bring it out as a treat come next year?
Asked by a fan on X if he would be playing the song at The O2, he replied: "100 p cent".

The 1994 track served as one of the songs on the B-side to Cigarettes & Alcohol and has been played by Liam in his solo performances, like the above at Isle Of Wight Festival.
While Whatever WASN'T A B-side, it is very much from the Definitely Maybe era. It was the band's first non-album single, released on 18th December 1994 as a Christmas single between Cigarettes & Alcohol (1994) and Rock 'n' Roll Star (1995).
Liam has performed the track on his solo dates, so it's definitely possible for him to bring it out again.
