Liam Gallagher plus Fontaines D.C. and The Velvet Hands

Wednesday 26 June

Rock ‘n’ roll legend Liam Gallagher will play Eden on Wednesday 26 June! He’ll be making his return to the Sessions as a solo artist, having headlined with Oasis in 2009.

Liam released his debut solo album As You Were in 2017 to critical and commercial success. The album debuted at number one in the UK, outselling the rest of the top 10 of the UK Albums Chart combined. It has since been certified platinum in the UK, achieving the highest single-week vinyl sales in 20 years, with 16,000 copies sold. A second solo record is due for release this year.

Liam has been named the greatest frontman of all time by readers of Q magazine and was given the Godlike Genius award at last year’s NME Awards. In 2017, he was given the Icon Award and Best Live Act award at the Q Awards and was named Rock ‘n’ Roll Star of the year at the GQ Men of the Year Awards.

He found fame as part of the legendary rock band Oasis, who became one of the most successful acts in British music history. Oasis have had eight UK number-one singles and eight UK number-one albums. They won seventeen NME Awards, nine Q Awards, four MTV Europe Music Awards and six Brit Awards.

Special guests

Fontaines D.C.

fontaines-dcThe last six months have seen Dublin band Fontaines D.C. release four hotly received double A-side singles, all of which were named as singles of the week by Rough Trade, and garnered early support from the likes of Steve Lamacq and others on BBC 6 Music, as well as earning feature space from every major Irish and UK publication. They have toured sold-out shows across Ireland, the UK and Europe, and are on a full world tour throughout
2019. Their long-awaited and highly-anticipated debut album, Dogrel, was released in April this year.

The Velvet Hands

The Velvet HandsPart of Cornwall’s blistering garage-rock scene, The Velvet Hands blend slacker story-telling and belting guitar riffs reminiscent of The Strokes or contemporaries such as The Vaccines, with rousing punk choruses that recall The Clash. Described by The NME as “full of bolshy spirit”, the band’s self-recorded debut album went on to be Huw Stephens Radio 1 Album of the Week. 2019 has seen the band hard at work on their follow-up album, the first single from it, “Don’t Be Nice To Me” is on the airwaves now and streams from 13 June.
