Liam Gallagher will headline London’s O2 Arena for the first time.

Liam Gallagher has announced details of a major UK tour, and the 11-date schedule includes a huge show at The O2 on Thursday November 28.

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.

Liam Gallagher’s eagerly anticipated second album Why Me? Why Not. is shaping up to be one of the album events of the year when it is released on September 20 on Warner Records.

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. And his current momentum is only going to continue to explode over the weekend when he hits Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage on Saturday evening.

Tickets go on general sale on Friday July 12 at 09.00, and they will be available at www.theo2.co.uk or by calling 0844 856 0202.
