Liam Gallagher pledges first solo gig to Manchester families
LIAM GALLAGHER has announced his first ever solo gig in Manchester — and this one he’ll be playing for free.
The outspoken Oasis star announced a string of solo shows on his Twitter account this morning, with all proceeds from the Manchester gig going to the families of the terror attack victims.
Tickets for the show on May 30 have already sold out.
Money raised from the gig at the O2 Ritz Manchester will be donated to the Manchester Evening News’ British Red Cross appeal, set up to help relatives of those affected by the tragedy.
Liam said: ‘I just knew I had to. I’m not in it for the money. The gig was going to happen anyway and we all have to do what we can.
‘I want to try and help pick people up. People like me, doing what we do, it’s our duty to give people a good time.’
Of Monday night’s bombing, he added: ‘It’s outrageous. Just so sad. What can you do? It’s just f***ing out of order. There are kids and people dying all over the world. And for what?
‘I’d gone to bed early — about 10pm — then got up in the morning to a text from my other brother saying what had gone on and I put the TV on. It’s just unbelievable.’
Tickets for Liam’s June shows in Brixton and Glasgow have also sold out, but at time of going to press Dublin ones were still available.
