Liam Gallagher and John Squire's Joint Tour Sells Out in Record Time
Liam Gallagher, formerly of Oasis, and John Squire, the guitarist for Stone Roses, have witnessed their upcoming joint tour tickets fly off the virtual shelves, selling out completely in a mere 30 seconds. The highly anticipated tour is set to kick off with their collaborative self-titled album taking center stage.
The circuit includes prominent cities such as Glasgow, Manchester, Dublin, and London, with shows planned for this March. Fans are in for a special treat as the pair have also recruited a supporting band made up of Barrie Cadogan on bass and Joey Waronker on drums. Furthermore, the enigmatic Jake Bugg is billed as their special guest for the tour, albeit with one exception at their Brooklyn performance.
The duo recently released their music video for the single 'Mars To Liverpool', complementing their tour announcement. The video, rich in archival material, adds a nostalgic element to their new collaborative venture.
The forthcoming album is scheduled for release on March 1, and both Gallagher and Squire have shared their excitement regarding the musical project. Gallagher assures fans of his and Squire's previous bands that the new album will resonate deeply with them, describing the work as 'spiritual' and 'crucial'. On the other hand, Squire has expressed his intent to balance rock elements with a variety of emotional depths in the album.
In response to fan inquiries, Gallagher clarified on Radio X that the tour would focus solely on their joint album and potential covers, distancing themselves from performing legacy Oasis and Stone Roses hits on this tour.
Despite the sell-out, fans of Gallagher's work with Oasis can still look forward to his performance at Reading & Leeds where he will play the iconic 'Definitely Maybe' album in full. Gallagher's headline slot at Reading has already sold out, with other big acts like Lana Del Rey and Fred Again.. slated to perform.
