In the second major London park-related announcement of the day, FR has revealed Liam Gallagher will play his biggest headline show to date in Finsbury Park on 29 June
By Jon Chapple on 23 Oct 2017
Liam Gallagher will bring his As You Were tour to London’s Finsbury Park next June for a two-stage, multi-artist day of music, promoter Festival Republic has announced.
Gallagher, who is touring in support of his no1 debut solo album, will be supported on 29 June by “many more artists” still to be announced for his biggest headline show to date.
The news was announced on RadioX, the show’s radio partner, this afternoon, with Gallagher (pictured) telling DJ Johnny Vaughan he’s “currently in rehearsals, blowing the cobwebs off some stone-cold classics.” Festival Republic says the event is “guaranteed to be the stand-out rock show of the summer”.
Festival Republic currently promotes two festivals, Wireless and Community Festival, in the 110-acre park in Harringay, north London.
The news follows a similar major announcement by rival Goldenvoice, which is launching a new festival in Victoria Park, east London, this morning. Both events go on sale at 9am this Friday (27 October).
The Liam Gallagher show is priced at £52.50 plus booking fee for GA, and £85 plus booking fee for VIP tickets, with tickets available from www.festivalrepublic.com/liamgallagher.
