Liam Gallagher’s new band Beady Eye have announced a Blackpool concert to launch a mini UK tour.
The biggest date in the resort’s 2011 rock calendar is on Friday November 11 at the Empress Ballroom – a venue Gallagher performed at in the height of his days with the original Oasis line-up.
Beady Eye – made up of Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock – will first play dates in South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Abu Dhabi, South America and across Europe before returning to the UK for just five shows.
The band released their debut album Different Gear, Still Speeding in February which went gold on release and embarked on a sold out UK tour soon after.
Since then they have gigged all over the world and played countless festivals including a headline appearance in the NME/Radio 1 tent at last weekend’s Reading and Leeds Festival.
Beady Eye will kick off their mini tour of the UK at Blackpool following up with shows in Sheffield, Birmingham and Swindon and finishing up at London O2 Academy Brixton on November 17.
n Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9am and are restricted to a maximum of four per person.
Priced £27.50 each (plus booking fee) they will be available from the Winter Gardens Box Office, www.blackpoollive.com or 0844 856 1111.
