Liam Gallagher is joining Radio X to give music fans a rare insight into his career.
Radio X’s Johnny Vaughan will talk to Liam about his life and career in front of an intimate audience at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium on Sunday October 16th. They’ll also be joined by Oasis guitarist Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs. Just 200 tickets will be available for the intimate event, which is in aid of Global’s Make Some Noise.
As the frontman and lead singer of Oasis, Liam sold a combined total of 77 million copies across seven multiplatinum studio albums, making them one of the highest selling bands of all time. Their second record ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’ remains the fifth biggest selling album in UK history. After Oasis, Gallagher joined Beady Eye for the release of two top five records and has since been working on the new Oasis film ‘Supersonic’ that is due to be released next month.
Global’s Make Some Noise was created by Global in 2014 to give a voice to charities that struggle to get heard. The national grant-giving charity supports projects that help disadvantaged youngsters by raising money and crucially giving them a platform to tell their story to millions of people. Global is home to the country’s most loved commercial radio brands including Radio X, Heart, Capital and Classic FM and together its media brands reach 30 million people every week.
Global’s Make Some Noise supports youngsters living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity. On October 7th the third annual appeal day will see all Global’s stations come together and support Global’s Make Some Noise with a very special day celebrating the projects it supports with guests, presenter challenges and money can’t buy prizes.
Chris Baughen, Radio X’s managing editor, said: “We’re thrilled that Liam and Bonehead are joining us for what will be a really special evening. Oasis are one of the greatest and most influential bands of all time, and are huge favourites of Radio X listeners. We’re very grateful to Liam and Bonehead for getting together with Radio X for our charity, Global’s Make Some Noise.”
Tickets go on sale on Wednesday September 28 at 8am from www.radiox.co.uk. All proceeds from the event are going to Global’s Make Some Noise.
