Liam Gallagher sings ‘Acquiesce’ for first time without Noel

Liam Gallagher has performed Acquiesce for the first time ever as a solo artist.

The former Oasis frontman played Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena, playing songs from the iconic Manchester band, his first solo album As You Were and its follow-up Why Me? Why Not.

Enlisting the help of the crowd to sing the chorus, which is originally sung by his estranged brother Noel, Liam even ensured they could see the song’s lyrics up on the screen.

Introducing the track, Gallagher told the crowd: “People banging on about me going ‘when you gonna do that tune? I go, “well our kid’s not here’.

“But I’ve got loads of brothers and sisters down there and they’ll help us do it. The words are gonna be on the fucking screen so no excuses.”

As Radio X reports, Gallagher also played Oasis tracks Gas Panic for the first time since 2002 as well as Beady Eye song The World’s Not Set in Stone for the first time as a solo artist, plus he gave his Be Still song its live debut.
