Former Oasis singer Liam Gallagher’s new musical venture has revealed plans for a UK tour in April to promote the release of the band’s first album.
Beady Eye have already announced sell-out gigs in Glasgow, Manchester and London for March, but the following month will see its first truly national tour – with a number of dates in Ireland as well.
The debut Beady Eye single,”The Roller,” is released on 21 February, and promises to be a great hit, with nearly 400,000 viewings already on YouTube. The band has stirred similar interest with the online release over the past few months of other tracks from the album, “Bring The Light” and “Four Letter Word.”
Shortly before the March dates, the album, “Different Gear, Still Speeding” is due for release, on 28 February, by which time there should be a fair bit of buzz around concerning Liam’s post-Oasis project. The album is said to contain 13 new tracks in all, and the style is still as rough-edged and rocky as fans of his erstwhile supergroup remember and love.
As for the tour, that kicks off on 11 April at Nottingham Rock City, before travelling to Liverpool Guild of Students, The Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Belfast’s Ulster Hall, the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, the Newcastle and Leeds O2 Academies, the Newport Centre, Wolverhampton Civic Centre and Southampton Guildhall, before finishing at the Brighton Centre on the 27th.
Beady Eye are also booked to play the sold out Isle of Wight festival on 12 June.
