Last summer Liam Gallagher joined the list of all-time greats (Paul McCartney, Page and Plant, Nirvana and many more) who have filmed a prestigious MTV Unplugged session. Having missed Oasis’s 1996 session through illness, the show at Hull’s City Hall found Liam fulfilling some unfinished business entirely on his own terms. Now Liam releases the ‘MTV Unplugged’ live album of the show.
The show’s electrifying atmosphere is palpable from the very beginning with a phenomenal reaction as Liam takes to the stage with Wall of Glass. Material from Liam’s solo career such as his personal favourite Once and the joyous Now That I’ve Found You resonates in this stripped-back format, with his vocal shining alongside a trio of backing singers and string arrangements performed by the 24-piece Urban Soul Orchestra.
Oasis guitarist Bonehead features on performances of Some Might Say, Stand By Me, Cast No Shadow and Liam’s first ever live vocal performance of the Definitely Maybe bonus track Sad Song. The show concludes on a crowd-pleasing high with an emotive take on the classic Champagne Supernova.
