Oasis fans have been waiting with baited breath ever since Liam teased earlier this year that he was planning to do a UK tour to play their 1994 debut album in full.

The teasing hasn’t stopped since then, including his recent divulgence that he’d be playing “naughty” B-sides from the era too, in addition to the beloved (and Royle Family theme song) ‘Half The World Away’, sung by his older brother, former bandmate and Oasis chief songwriter Noel.

Today, Liam’s shared full details of the 12-date ‘Definitely Maybe 30 Years’ UK and Ireland tour, which kicks off in Sheffield on 2nd June before stopping in Cardiff for a night, then hitting London for three nights in the capital, three in his hometown of Manchester, two in Glasgow, and two in Dublin.

“I’m bouncing around the house to announce the ‘Definitely Maybe’ Tour,” said Gallagher. “The most important album of the ‘90s bar none. I wouldn’t be anywhere without it and neither would you, so let’s celebrate together LG x”

A press release also promises other “fan favourites that could be performed from the other songs that were released during the ‘Definitely Maybe’ era”, potentially including ‘Whatever’, ‘Fade Away’, ‘Listen Up’, and ‘Sad Song’.

The tour will see Liam take on the entire album in a solo capacity — Noel has been vocal recently that an Oasis reunion will not be happening any time soon (but he didn’t rule it out!), although he did confirm a 30th-anniversary reissue of the LP.

Liam, meanwhile, has revealed his new solo album is finished. His most recent, and third, record was last year with his C’mon You Know.

He also released a live album from his mammoth show at Knebworth in 2022. You can read our review of the performance here. It was one of Liam’s biggest headline shows to date as a solo artist, performing in front of more than 170,000 people over two nights.

November will see Oasis reissue their B-sides collection of The Masterplan to mark its 25th anniversary.
