Liam Gallagher is coming to Belfast next year.

Fresh from his pair of sold out shows at Dublin's 3Arena, Gallagher will return to these shores next August, when he will headline Belfast Vital.

The former Oasis frontman was confirmed on Monday morning for a headline slot at the annual Belfast festival, which will be Gallagher's biggest ever show in the Northern Irish city.

Gallagher will take to the stage at Boucher Road Playing Fields on Wednesday, 19 August 2020, with special guests expected to be announced in the coming months.

Tickets will be released for public sale this Thursday at 9am from although you can apply for presale via MCD Productions.

Gallagher released his second solo album Why Me? Why Not. in September following the success of the record's lead single, Shockwave, over the summer.

Many fans were disappointed that Belfast was not included on Gallagher's current tour but they won't have long to wait before he brings his biblical show to the banks of the River Lagan.

Fans shouldn't expect the long-awaited Oasis reunion at Belfast Vital, however, as tensions seem as high as ever between Liam and his older brother Noel.

Liam recently dismissed any chances of inviting Noel over for Christmas dinner while his Twitter response to a question about why he is so much more popular online than his sibling was "Coz im not a boring little fart with a massive head."

So it's fair to say that there's still a bit of hostility there then...
