Yes that’s right, our kid is coming to Australia.
But you already knew that, because he let it slip in an interview with GQ three days before the festival lineup was officially announced. One wonders what the fallout for this little slip of the tongue was for Liam Gallagher. Hopefully some poor PR person was sent to give him a rap on the knuckles and was met with the obligatory, “Press release? I once played to 250,000 people at Knebworth mate, do us a favour and fook off.” But at this stage events remain unclear.
What is apparent, however, is that Falls have pulled together a hell of a lineup for their smattering of festivals this year with Fleet Foxes, Run the Jewels, Vince Staples, and plenty more set to hit the stage at Lorne, Marion Bay, Byron, and Freemantle over the New Year period. The mind boggles at the logistics of shipping the bands between all the venues over such a short period (Lorne starts of the 28th Dec and Freemantle finishes on the 7th Jan), but one can only hope that Liam doesn’t do what he did on the first night at Knebworth and forget that he was playing two consecutive nights and get motherless drunk on the night of the first show. Tickets go on sale on the 28th August, but in the meantime get right royal fired up for Run the Jewels and enjoy the music vid of the year from our pal Chris Hopewell.
