Former Oasis frontman and national music motormouth Liam Gallagher has expanded his UK tour today, adding two Irish dates to his upcoming stint.
Gallagher’s tour, in support of his long-awaited solo album As You Were, will kick off in December, with the first leg concluding in Gallagher’s beloved hometown of Manchester.
In late October, the singer also announced that he would be playing a huge outdoor gig at London’s Finsbury Park, on June 29;following the likes of Pulp, Arctic Monkeys, and Rage Against the Machine, in playing at the 40,000 capacity venue.

Following the presumably huge demand for tickets for all current dates, Gallagher has added dates in Dublin and Belfast to precede the show in Finsbury Park. You can see the full list of dates from- for both December and June- below, and tickets are on sale now.
Gallagher has had a massive renaissance year in 2017, with As You Were instantly topping the charts in the UK, outselling the entire top 20 other albums combined, and shifting over 103,000 units in it’s first week. As You Were also became the fastest-selling vinyl record of the last two decades, continuing vinyl’s own renaissance in doing so.
Such has been his recent success, that Gallagher recently revealed that he is already working on the follow-up to As You Were. “I’m made up that the album’s been received really well,” he said. “There’s a lot of people who get a number one with like 3,000 copies these days, and that ain’t fuckin’ good enough for me. Obviously it sold well, and it seemed like people really want a Liam Gallagher record, so that’s made me happy. I guess we’’ll go and do another one!”
