Liam Gallagher has told fans that he wants to celebrate 30 years of Oasis’ debut album, 'Definitely Maybe', by performing the tracklist in full.
The singer-songwriter announced his intentions on social media earlier this week, telling fans that they can expect to see him hitting the stage soon in celebration of the album’s anniversary.
'Definitely Maybe' was the first full-length LP from the iconic Brit-pop band and 2024 will mark three decades since it was first released.
According to Gallagher, he not only intends to perform fan favourites including 'Rock ‘N’ Roll Star', 'Live Forever' and 'Supersonic' at live shows, but wants to play the album in its entirety and in the official order of the track listing.
"As it’s 30 years since 'Definitely Maybe' was released nxt year I’m gonna be playing the album from start to finish in its original order at a few BIBLICAL venues," he wrote on Twitter.
Although it isn’t yet clear what "biblical" venues the vocalist is referring to, it can be expected that wherever he chooses is likely to sell out, as fans have been persistently calling for an Oasis reformation in recent years.
If the live shows do come to fruition, they will not be the only way that the members are planning on celebrating the milestone. Last month, bandmate Noel Gallagher confirmed that the band would be honouring 30 years of the breakthrough LP by sharing an anniversary reissue.
Alongside new artwork and the original tracks, the forthcoming reissue will also feature previously-unreleased songs – recorded at the same time that the album was made – as well as demo versions of their most famous hits.
According to the High Flying Birds frontman, this will specifically include acoustic versions of fan favourites including 'Live Forever', 'Slide Away’ and 'Supersonic'.
