Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Manchester export Liam Gallagher will play a huge hometown show at Heaton Park on 12 June 2020.
He’ll be joined by a host of special guests, yet to be revealed.
The show follows a huge 11 date sold out UK tour as well as Liam hitting the No.1 spot on the UK album chart.
The swaggering Mancunian is celebrating the release of his sophomore solo album Why Me? Why Not. at the end of September 2019. The record is the follow up to his debut solo record, 2017’s As You Were.
Why Me? Why Not. features 11 songs, produced by the Grammy Award-winning Greg Kurstin (Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney) who also worked on the rock ‘n’ roll star’s debut.

Liam rose to fame as the frontman and lead vocalist of the Manchester rock band Oasis from their formation in 1991 to their heated break up in 2009.
One of the biggest British exports of all time, Oasis sold over 75 million records and regularly sold out stadiums across the globe.
After the dissolution of Oasis in 2009, Liam founded the band Beady Eye who released albums in 2011 and 2013 before calling it quits in 2014.
After a period out of the spotlight, Liam Gallagher returned to music in 2017 deciding to release material under his own name for the first time.
He released his solo debut album As You Were in September 2017. The record saw Gallagher return to the sound that first made him famous and was a hit with critics and fans, topping the Official UK Albums Chart on release and receiving praise from the likes of NME, Rolling Stone and Q.
Earlier this year the documentary As It Was was released, chronicling the iconic singer’s struggle to get over the breakups of Oasis and Beady Eye, his personal battles and his journey back to the top of the music industry.
Liam Gallagher will now take to Manchester’s Heaton Park for a huge headline performance.
