Richard Ashcroft reportedly helped put Liam Gallagher’s new solo live band together
Britpop’s finest team up
Earlier this year, the former Verve turned solo icon spoke out to reveal that he’d be playing a huge show with Liam later in 2017.
“I played a show with Noel a few months ago and I’m playing with Liam later in the year,” he said. Asked who would he pick if he had to choose between Liam and brother Noel Gallagher, Ashcroft said: “I would have to politely tell them both that I had something else on and stay at home.”
The same source also revealed that Liam “wants to give fans something they’re not getting from Noel” – namely ‘Be Here Now’ era tracks and songs that include ‘Whatever’, ‘D’You Know What I Mean’, ‘My Big Mouth’ and ‘Don’t Go Away’.
Liam is also said to be practising Beady Eye tracks and rare B-sides, alongside solo material.
Meanwhile, Richard Ashcroft’s upcoming UK tour dates are below:
April 17 – O2 Academy Newcastle
April 18 – Glasgow SSE Hydro
April 20 – Barclaycard Arena Birmingham

June 30 – Manchester Castlefield Bowl
