Liam Gallagher is set to make a dramatic return to live performance with the announcement of Down By The River Thames. This one-of-a-kind virtual event will be streamed globally on Saturday, 5 December, exclusively on MelodyVR.

Down By The River Thames will see the younger Gallagher accompanied by his full band for a set broadcast from a barge travelling along the Thames. The show will include iconic songs, fan favourites and a few surprises, spanning both his solo career and his time with Oasis – some of which he hasn’t performed in years. 

“To all my brothers and sisters around the world,” he posted on Twitter, “I’m performing a one-off celestial live performance for you to stream. I’ll be performing tracks from my two No.1 solo albums as well as some stone cold Oasis classics, some of which you haven’t heard me sing for a long, long time. C’mon you know. LG x”.

Down By The River Thames will kick off at 8pm local time via MelodyVR’s web player around the world to enable as many fans as possible to see the show.
