Liam Gallagher proves why he's a rock n roll star: Review of Utilita Arena show
It is so appropriate that Liam Gallagher started his gig with Rock ‘n’ Roll Star as how many deserve that accolade as much as him?
Liam treated a capacity crowd to six tracks off his exceptional Why Me? Why Not second solo album - or as was beautifully tweeted by @liamgallagher before the gig at Newcastle's Utilita Arena...."Why eye me why eye not".
Liam performed a perfect blend of Oasis tunes and his solo tracks – the only one missing for me was the song he wrote for his daughter, Molly. I event tweeted asking if he could treat his North East fans to the amazing Now That I've Found You. Well, it was worth a try.
Paul Gascoigne got a mention with Liam dedicating Roll With It to ‘Gazza’.
Favourites on the 20-strong set-list for me were Gas Panic, Halo, Acquiesce and The River along with his final track of the night, as the second encore, which was another Oasis crowd-pleasing classic, Cigarettes and Alcohol.
His gigs just get better and better. Always left wanting more.
