Liam Gallagher's 2018 Finsbury Park headline show sells out in minutes

Liam Gallagher’s 2018 Finsbury Park show sold out within minutes of it going on sale this morning.

Tickets for the concert, which was only announced on Monday this week, were snapped up as soon as they were released at 9am.

And the man himself seemed overwhelmed by the response and, referencing a Small Faces song, tweeted: “Under dreaming spires, to Finsbury Park that’s where I’ll be, as you were LGX.” He then added: “WOW massive THANK YOU seriously blown away by all your support this is gonna be biblical, as you were LG x.”

The former Oasis frontman will bring his band for the all-day event, which he’s 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”.

The singer is in demand after his debut solo arena tour of the UK in December also sold out in minutes.
