Following Liam Gallagher’s duo of huge Knebworth Park shows, which proved to be some of the biggest live events of 2022, the always ambitious icon has once again stirred-up excitement with news of a tour that will more than tempt fans back out to arenas. Gallagher will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of Oasis’s all-conquering and massively influential debut album by embarking upon the Definitely Maybe 30 Years arena tour in 2024.

The tour will see the younger Gallagher brother perform the Definitely Maybe album in full for the first time, along with some select b-sides from the era. The sets will of course be packed with classics – Rock ‘n’ Roll Star, Live Forever, Supersonic and Cigarettes & Alcohol, to name but a few. But it will also be a rare opportunity to see other album tracks that have rarely, if ever, been performed since the mid-‘90s, including Up In The Sky and Digsy’s Dinner.
And there are numerous fan favourites that could be performed from the other songs that were released during the Definitely Maybe era, which could potentially include another big hit in the shape of Whatever as well as deep cuts such as Fade Away, Listen Up and Sad Song.
The 12-date Definitely Maybe 30 Years tour is also massive in scale, with highlights including three nights at Manchester’s 23,500-capacity Co-Op Live, which will be the biggest arena in the country when it opens next May, as well as three shows at The O2 in London.
Check out a trailer for the tour below:

After becoming the foremost frontman of his generation with Oasis, Liam Gallagher’s solo career has been a story of a remarkable rebirth – and one that has introduced his talents to a whole new audience. It has seen him score five UK #1 albums in just six years: his three studio sets, As You Were, Why Me? Why Not? and C’MON YOU KNOW plus the live records MTV Unplugged and Knebworth 22. His comeback has been capped by two unforgettable performances at the BRIT Awards, winning Rock ‘n’ Roll Star of the Year at the GQ Awards, and landing his highest position on the singles charts in thirteen years with Everything’s Electric.
Rockshot Magazine went along to catch Liam Gallagher play a tiny show at Camden’s Koko venue earlier this year in support of the release of Knebworth 22. Check out what went down here.
