The young singer-songwriter celebrated his Number 1 debut album Hypersonic Missiles with an amazing show in Manchester back in September 2019. Watch the set here.

Radio X Presents Liam Gallagher with very special guest Sam Fender took place at the O₂ Ritz Manchester on 21st September 2019.

The day before, the young singer-songwriter from North Shields had learnt that his debut album, Hypersonic Missiles, had gone to Number 1 in the UK charts.

Opening the set with Millennial, Fender showcased his debut LP with hugely popular songs, including The Borders, Dead Boys, Hypersonic Missiles and Will We Talk?

You can watch all the action from the set above.

Before the show, Sam sat down with Liam to discuss having a Number 1 album.

Fender said of the experience of getting to the top with his debut: "It's kind of mad. I don't feel much different... Why am I f**king lying to you? I feel mental mate.”

The Oasis legend replied: "Yeah, it's hard to put your finger on mate," before quipping: "You'll probably realise when you're number two next week."

Needless to say, Gallagher's prediction that his own second solo album, Why Me? Why Not. would knock Fender's Hypersonic Missiles off the top spot came true.
