Liam Gallagher’s eagerly anticipated second album Why Me? Why Not. is shaping up to be one of the albums of the year.

The reaction to the lead single Shockwave was biblical. It shot straight to the top of the Official Vinyl and Trending Charts, in the process underlining Liam’s status as a rock star who speaks to new and established fans alike.

Previewing his brand new track The River, at his Glastonbury set, the track is powered by a visceral, driving riff, think Led Zeppelin powered by Madchester energy for 2019, The River finds Liam’s distinctive sneering vocal delivering a rallying call for the current generation to fight for change. Its anarchic attitude targets the figureheads of the establishment, from money-sucking MPs to vacant celebrities.

Liam has also announced details of a major UK and European tour. The 23-date schedule includes a huge London show at the O2 Arena as well as what’s sure to be a rapturously received homecoming set at Manchester’s MEN Arena. Huge demand for tickets has been a hallmark of Liam’s solo career. His debut UK arena tour saw all 100,000 tickets sell out within a morning, while all 40,000 tickets for his Finsbury Park show were snapped up within minutes.
