Win Tix To See Liam Gallagher @ The Festival Pier



Noel Gallgher always understood the importance of being obvious — fist-pumping guitar chords, stadium rattling bass lines, bobblehead-inducing drum beats, simple-Simon ‘moon in June’ rhymes that sound like Shakespeare to the besotted ears of soccer hooligans everywhere when bleated through the clenched teeth of his brother Liam’s gloriously feral Lennon-esque whine — which is why Oasis went champagne supernova in the mid-90s and ruled Britannia for the better part of the decade. Massive egos and sibling rivalry — aggravated by oceans of lager and mounds of cocaine the size of the Peruvian Andes — along with the inevitable bursting of the Britpop bubble finally put a period on the end of Oasis saga in 2009. The Brothers Gallagher split off into competing solo projects (Noel’s High Flying Birds and Liam’s now-disbanded Beady Eye), trashing each other in the press before forging an uneasy truce that finds both monetizing the Oasis legacy with new solo albums near-annually and ensuing tours. Which is what brings dear Liam to the Festival Pier tomorrow night, on the Philly stop of a co-headling tour with ex-Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft for the benefit of true believers, 90s nostalogists and newbies that missed it the first time.
