Liam Gallagher Set For Peaky Blinders Festival Appearance
Last week, we announced that The Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival would be coming to Digbeth in central Birmingham on September 14 and 15. The festival will feature some of the big names from the show such as Kate Phillips (Linda Shelby), Finn Cole (Michael Gray) and bands such as Primal Scream and Slaves.
However, there was one spot on the full day splits that just said, 'mystery global superstar'. Global superstar himself, Liam Gallagher, has appeared to announce himself by replying to Instagram post from the festival, Liam said: "Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday".
"Ohhhhhhhh what a beautiful morning ohhhhhhhhhhhhh what a beautiful day."
A user by the name of @issytate asked if he had any plans, to which he replied: "Thought you'd never ask yeah I'm of (sic) to meet a man about a part in peaky blinders Why me Why not see ya." he said.
Perhaps Liam is just coming down to watch the show and enjoy the Peaky Blinders experience, but since when was he the kind of guy to take a backseat?
Thought you'd never ask yeah I'm of to meet a man about a part in peaky blinders Why me Why not see ya- Liam Gallagher (@liamgallagher) September 5, 2019
The festival coincides with the release of his new album Why Me? Why not? which is set to storm the charts on 20 September 2019.
If the synopsis for the event is anything to go by, it's going to be a weekend to remember for any Peaky Blinders fan, it reads: "Set in 1928, the Shelby family are comfortably set in unchallenged position in their native Birmingham and Thomas Shelby is an elected Member of Parliament and spokesman for the working man, living in London. And today, the Peaky Blinders are raising money for the Shelby Foundation and the Grace Shelby Institute by inviting all Digbeth's citizens to a street fair and festival.
"However, the peace can only hold so long, as the romany Lee family, Irish O'Carrolls, the police and even Women's Rights activists rub shoulders with the Peaky Blinders in a gambling den and boxing ring at The Warehouse, the romany encampment in The Yard and The Ruin pub. Expect explosive drama unfolding right around you."
Festival goers will see their favourite stars gather to honour Peaky Blinders including Kate Phillips (Linda Shelby), Finn Cole (Michael Gray), Paul Anderson (Arthur Shelby) and Paddy Considine (Father John Hughes), across the weekend.
And the man himself Cillian Murphy, as Tommy Shelby, has recorded a performance of two poems - 'Futility' by Wilfred Owen and 'The Ballad of Tommy Shelby', which will be exclusively broadcast across the festival.
