Liam Gallagher enjoys Supersonic night at The O2

Liam Gallagher thanked his fans for turning out to see him on a “cold December night” on Monday (10.06.24).

The 51-year-old rocker performed the third of his four sell-out ‘Definitely Maybe’ shows at London’s The O2, and made a nod towards the unseasonal conditions towards the end of the gig.

He told the crowd: “Thank you for coming out on this cold f****** December night on a Monday. I appreciate it, I really do.”

Earlier in the evening, Liam has urged the audience to treat the show as the beginning of the weekend and to get into the party mood, and they were happy to adhere to his request, loudly singing along and chanting the singer’s name in between songs.

After kicking off with ‘Rock n Roll Star’ and offering a shout out to “the one and only Bonehead”, his former Oasis bandmate who has joined him in celebrating the 30th anniversary of the group’s debut album, Liam said: “The weekend starts here, I don’t wanna hear any of that Monday night s***”.

The singer and his band – who performed on a stage filled with props that referenced the cover of ‘Definitely Maybe’, including two giant pink flamingos, a picture of Burt Bacharach, an old TV and a giant spinning globe – then launched into a blistering version of ‘Columbia’, quickly followed by ‘Shakermaker’, ‘Up in the Sky’, ‘Digsy’s Dinner’ and ‘Bring it On Down’ before introducing the rarities and B-sides section of the set.

Liam quipped: “We’re gonna do a few old things. I know that sounds a bit naughty and a bit kinky and a bit Wayne Rooney and that, it just came out that way.”

He then sang ‘Supersonic’ B-side ‘I Will Believe’ followed by ‘Half the World Away’, which was originally sung by his estranged brother Noel Gallagher and pointedly dedicated to “no ****”.

Another two rarities followed, fan favourite ‘D’Yer Wanna Be a Spaceman?’ and ‘Fade Away’, before another nod to Noel with ‘Lock All the Doors’, a track originally recorded as an Oasis demo but best known as a single from his sibling’s High-Flying Birds solo project.

Fan excitement kicked back up a notch when Liam returned to ‘Definitely Maybe’ with ‘(It’s Good To Be Free)’ and then closed out with rousing renditions of ‘Whatever’, ‘Cigarettes + Alcohol’ and ‘Married with Children’.

The band made a brief exit from the stage but fans knew they’d be back as Liam hadn’t yet song three of the album’s biggest tracks, ‘Supersonic’, ‘Slide Away’, and ‘Live Forever’, which sounded every bit as fresh and urgent as they did 30 years ago.

Liam then briefly left the stage once more before returning for a final bow and a rendition of The Beatles’ ‘I Am the Walrus’.
