Liam Gallagher has said his most memorable ever gig was watching the Stone Roses in Blackpool.

The Oasis frontman was at the Empress Ballroom in August 1989 to see his fellow Mancunians play what turned out to be a legendary gig.

It was later turned into a DVD The Stone Roses Live: Blackpool Empress Ballroom, released in November 1991.

Gallagher, whose As You Were debut album is expected to hit Number 1 in the album charts this week, was speaking as part of a live Q&A on Reddit.
