The former Oasis rocker has been announced as the first bill topper at the August Bank Holiday festivals.
The festivals took to Twitter this Friday (29 November) to confirm the news that the former Oasis frontman will be their first headliner, deeming it an “early Christmas present” for their followers.
The festival – which takes place in Reading’s Richfield Avenue and Leeds’ Bramham Park across the August Bank Holiday – were shared the news after Gallagher let it slip to his 3.7 million fans on Twitter, simply writing: “Reading and Leeds c’mon you know LG x”.
Shortly after his fans began wondering if he was serious, the twin festivals wrote: “Nice one @liamgallagher… kept that quiet”.
This week has been a huge one for Liam Gallagher live news, with the Shockwave singer announcing a headline gig at Manchester’s Heaton Park on Saturday 12 June 2020.
