We're thrilled to be bringing the MTV Unplugged franchise back to the UK
“MTV Unplugged lets music fans experience their favourite artists’ songs in a completely new way,” said Bruce Gillmer, MTV International global head of music and talent, MTV International. “We’re thrilled to be bringing the franchise back to the UK, and to markets around the world, for a whole new generation of music fans. As always with Liam Gallagher, we can guarantee it’s going to be an incredible night full of surprises.”

Gallagher said: “I’m honoured to be performing at the legendary showcase that is MTV Unplugged. I’ll be playing songs from my No.1 debut solo album, I’ll be playing some stone cold classics from the mighty Oasis and I’ll be showcasing some of my new songs from my upcoming second solo album Why Me? Why Not. I’d love it if you could join us as it’s sure to be a biblical evening. P.S. I Love Hull!”
