Liam Gallagher is set to perform his old band's debut album in full to mark its 30th anniversary.

Oasis' 'Definitely Maybe' was an era-defining hit when it was released in August 1994 - at that time becoming the fastest-selling debut album in British music history.

Three decades later there is no sign of the squabbling Gallagher siblings burying the hatchet to reform the band, but younger brother Liam has now taken matters into his own hands to mark the album's birthday.

What has Liam Gallagher said about the tour?

Announcing the shows, Liam said: “I'm bouncing around the house to announce the Definitely Maybe Tour. The most important album of the ‘90s bar none. I wouldn't be anywhere without it and neither would you, so let’s celebrate together LG x".

The tickets go on sale to the general public at 9am on Friday, October 20. You can find them here.

Is there a presale?

Customers of OVO Energy can take advantage of a presale starting at 9am on Wednesday, October 18, here.

What's the likely setlist?

Givem the title of the tour, expect to hear every song from 'Definitely Maybe', as follows.

  1. Rock 'n' Roll Star
  2. Shakermaker
  3. Live Forever
  4. Up in the Sky
  5. Columbia
  6. Supersonic
  7. Bring It On Down
  8. Cigarettes & Alcohol
  9. Digsy's Dinner
  10. Slide Away
  11. Married with Children

Liam has also said that he'll be performing other songs from the same era, so expect b-side and non-album hits such as ‘Whatever’ and 'Half A World Away', as well as deep cuts such as ‘Fade Away’, ‘Listen Up’ and ‘Sad Song’.

And, given that Liam tends to be a crowd pleaser, don't bet against hearing the likes of 'Wonderwall' and 'Don't Look Back in Anger'.
