Liam Gallagher is set to hit the stage very soon for the release of his Knebworth record. 

The Oasis icon has confirmed he’ll play the famous KOKO venue in London on 9th August to celebrate the launch of his Knebworth 22 live album, which follows the two sold-out shows he played there in 2022. 

The pre-sale for the intimate gig will open on 5th July at 10am, with the option to pre-order Knebworth 22 by 3pm on 4th July for early access. 

The live album will feature performances of solo tracks like Shockwaves and The River, as well as iconic Oasis classics including Wonderwall and Champagne Supernova. 

After dropping his third solo album, C’mon You Know - which went to number one - Liam returned to Knebworth, some 26 years since his former band Oasis played their seminal 1996 shows there. Over two nights in June, he performed to a cool 170,000 people. 

Teasing fans about the show news, Liam had previously tweeted: “Beautiful people where the hell have I been answers on a wotsit anyways f*** all that curious killed the twat malarky I’m back with some BIBLICAL news 10am Humongous announcement MCFC TREBLE WINNERS LG x”

The Knebworth news comes after Liam’s brother Noel revealed the one thing he needs to do in order to get Oasis back together, and described his sibling as “a coward” for not giving him a call. 

The Britpop icons formed in 1993 and went on to have major success with albums such as (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? and Be Here Now. 

After becoming one of the UK’s most successful acts, the band split in 2009 following an explosive argument backstage at a concert in Paris, France and fans have been praying for their return ever since.

Not too keen on his brother’s demands, Liam tweeted angrily in response to Noel, writing: "I turn up and play the MUSIC for the people of MANCHESTER who have just had a terror attack while you sit on your dingy [sic] sipping champagne and you got the audacity to call me a COWARD sit down".

Liam Gallagher’s Knebworth 22 live album gig, KOKO 23, will take place on Wednesday 9th August. Pre-sale opens on 5th July, with first access available with Knebworth 22 pre-orders before 3pm 4th July.
