Liam Gallagher has announced a special one-off gig at London’s Finsbury Park next summer.
Having seen his debut solo arena tour of the UK in December sell out in minutes, the former Oasis frontman will bring his band for the all-day event called As You Were, London.
The two-stage event, promoted by Festival Republic, takes place on Friday, June 29 - traditionally the weekend of Glastonbury, which is taking a fallow year in 2018.
Support acts have yet to be announced for what will be Gallagher's biggest solo headline show to date. The singer's booking agent, Coda's Alex Hardee, hinted about plans for the concert to Music Week last month, saying his 2018 live plans included “a big outdoor headline show with some surprising guests”.
Gallagher confirmed the date to his fans as he appeared on Johnny Vaughan’s Radio X show this afternoon, which he followed with a video post on his Twitter page.

Gallagher's debut solo album As You Were became the third fastest-selling LP of the year so far in the UK when it passed 100,000 sales to shoot to No.1 in the albums chart earlier this month. It is No.4 in the latest midweeks.
Tickets for the event will go on sale at 9am on Friday, October 27.
