Liam Gallagher, one half of the feuding Oasis founders, is following in his older brother’s footsteps by staging his first solo show in Thailand this Friday (January 12) at Hall 106 of Bitec Bangna, the venue where Noel played in 2012, and again with new outfit Beady Eye in 2014.



“Liam is an idol among the new generation and 75 per cent of ticket buyers are aged between 18-30 years old,” says Smitthi Bhiraleus, founder, chief executive and managing director of concert organiser Very Inc, which has joined up for the show with sponsors Numero Group.

“Twelve years have passed since Oasis’s last concert in Thailand and I know that fans are very much looking forward to seeing Liam on stage. Last year, he was awarded Best Live Act 2017 by Q Magazine. We confirm that our light and sound production is more than adequate for this stop on his global tour,” he adds.

“It is our great honour to join together with The Very Company, the promoter for ‘Liam Gallagher Live in Bangkok’ for this, the first event of 2018. We have a lot of surprises in store for 2018 including meet and greet with world-famous artists and other concerts,” says Ploykarn Potipimpanon of Numero Group.

Fans can expect Liam to perform new singles from his solo debut studio album, “As You Were” released in 2017. He worked with producers Greg Kurstin, Andrew Wyatt and Dan Grech-Marguerat on the album, with Kurstin producing the tracks “Wall of Glass”, “Paper Crown”, “Come Back to Me”, and “Doesn’t Have to Be That Way”, Wyatt producing “Chinatown”, and Grech-Marguerat producing the remaining tracks.

“This year, we are planning five more shows – all of them by critically acclaimed international acts,” says Smitthi, adding that these include American indie pop band Foster the People. They’ll be playing at Moonstar Studio on Lad Phrao Soi 80, on January 28. Look for tickets at www.ticketmelon.com/event/fosterthepeople.
