Angry Liam Gallagher Rows With His Own Band At Peaky Blinders Festival
Thousands of flat cap wearing revellers packed out the main stage at the inaugural Peaky Blinders Festival in Birmingham yesterday evening, eagerly anticipating the arrival of Liam Gallagher.
But as his band began the set with Oasis hit 'Rock N' Roll Star', there was no sign of the rock n' roll star himself.
To the relief of everybody, the main man did eventually stride out onto the stage. However, he clearly wasn't happy with his band and ordered them to start over - in typical LG fashion.
"We ain't doing this f****n' tinpot - start again," he said, pointing to the guitarists to his left.
"Next time wear a f****n' watch."
From there, the frontman definitely delivered on his promise not to do the gig 'f****n' tinpot', rattling through Oasis anthems such as 'Morning Glory', 'Cigarettes And Alcohol' 'Colombia' and 'Supersonic' with textbook menace and power.
Unsurprisingly, these classics went down a treat with the crowd, whose response provided an emphatic answer to Liam's question - 'are there any Oasis fans in the car park?'
Indeed, it was quite astonishing to behold the 46-year-old - who played to crowds of 125,000 at Knebworth in 1996 - perform in an actual car park in Digbeth.
It transpires that the singer agreed to play the festival as part of a swap deal with Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight - who in return wrote the video for Gallagher's single, 'One Of Us'.
No doubt Knight will be delighted with the deal, as Gallagher was on fine form and told crowds he was 'digging' the show, getting into the spirit of things by wearing a 'stupid f****n' hat'.
Gallagher's solo material was also well-received, with the likes of 'Once' brilliantly exhibiting the unique and mighty vocals he has built his career on.
Gallagher closed the hour-long set with 'Champagne Supernova', prompting a mass singalong as the sun set on both the car park - and a blinder of a day.
