Liam Gallagher Dedicates Oasis Classic 'Live Forever' To Mac Miller
Liam Gallagher has taken the opportunity to pay further tribute to the rapper Mac Miller, who died last Friday aged just 26.
Gallagher had previously tweeted a message of condolence to the musician, but used his time on the stage at Berlin's Lollapalooza festival to dedicate the Oasis classic 'Live Forever' to the star.
Introducing the song, Gallagher said: "I'd like to dedicate this to a lad who's just died, Mac Miller"

Miller was found dead at his Los Angeles home just before noon on Friday 7th September. He was discovered in an unresponsive state by police and medical emergency personnel. The cause of his death is not yet known.
Miller had recently released his fifth studio album 'Swimming' to critical acclaim and was due to embark upon a tour to support the album in October.
He recently spoke with Vulture magazine about how difficult he had found dealing with his celebrity and the public nature of his life.

He said: "A lot of times in my life I've put this pressure to hold myself to the standard of whatever I thought I was supposed to be, or how I was supposed to be perceived. And it creates pressure."
Miller began releasing music as a teenager in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He released five albums as Mac Miller and collaborated with many other artists.
Tributes have been paid from around the music world and Donald Glover - also known as Childish Gambino - also spoke about how much he had been impacted by Miller's death this week.
During a performance in the days following Miller's death, Glover spoke on stage about his relationship with him. He asked fans not to film it, but he said: "He was so nice. He was the sweetest guy, he was so nice.
"And we were both internet music kids, and a lot of critics were like, 'This corny-ass white dude, this corny-ass black dude,' and we used to talk. And this kid, he just loved music."
"My heart was broken...and I feel good about being sad because it tells me that he was special, that I had a special moment...Everybody in this room deserves that."
He then dedicated the song 'Riot' to the memory of Mac Miller, adding: "I love you, Mac, and I just want to tell you that I love you and this song is for him because I feel like sometimes he wanted to let go,"
The coroner is investigating the cause of Miller's death.
