Liam Gallagher is going for the gold. The ex-Oasis singer and his new band, Beady Eye, have allegedly agreed to perform Oasis' 'Wonderwall' during the closing ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Liam is stepping in for his estranged brother Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, who reportedly turned down a request to play the tune after considerable thought.
He's refrained from delving into his former band's multi-platinum catalog since they split up in 2009, but time heals all wounds, and Liam Gallagher is ready to start playing Oasis songs again -- at least judging from Thursday night's (June 28) set list, which found the Beady Eye frontman revisiting 'Rock 'N' Roll Star' and 'Morning Glory.'
If you need a little 'Wonderwall' or 'Champagne Supernova' or 'Don't Look Back in Anger' in your life, you're about to be obliged. Ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher and Beady Eye, his new band consisting of former Oasis members save for his brother and nemesis Noel, has confirmed that they will perform songs from their one-time band while on tour.
