Liam Gallagher to make solo debut at charity gig

Liam Gallagher is to make his debut as a solo artist at a London charity concert next year (17).

The former Oasis frontman, 44, announced in August (16) that he was going solo, returning to music from a long break after the 2014 spilt of his band Beady Eye.


Editors at Britain's Music Week magazine report the Britpop icon will perform at Bush Hall on 28 March as part of next year's Give a Gig Week series of concerts in aid of the charity Youth Music. Jess Glynne, Tom Odell and rapper Plan B are also on the Bush Hall bill.


Confirming he had signed a contract with Warner Brothers Records UK to release a solo record earlier this year, Liam said, "Very excited to be signing to the mighty Warner Brothers. Looking forward to making some super sweet sounds. Keep the faith."


Organizers of Give a Gig Week are encouraging bands around the U.K. to stage concerts between 24 and 31 March to raise funds for Youth Music, whose staff run musical projects for disadvantaged children.


In addition to Bush Hall, other London venues hosting concerts for the fundraising push include the Shepherd's Bush Empire, The Bedford, The Roundhouse and Hard Rock Cafe.


Charity bosses hope more than 100 charity concerts will take place in total.
