The first weekend in June marks the long-awaited return to Knebworth Park for Oasis ‘Rock 'n' Roll Star’ Liam Gallagher.

Twenty-six years on from Oasis’ record-breaking two nights at the Hertfordshire stately home of rock, Liam Gallagher returns – but this time around it’s just Liam.

Armed with a new album, C'MON YOU KNOW, Liam is ready for the biggest solo gigs of his career to date – as he says, "This is history - Part Two".

The Everything's Electric and Better Days singer heads to Knebworth Park over the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend on Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4.

The shows will be the first huge post-pandemic headline concerts held at Knebworth and the first major non-festival gigs at the venue in a decade.

While Knebworth hosted Sonisphere Festival in 2014 with Iron Maiden and Metallica headlining, and the Cool Britannia Festival twice after that in 2018 and 2019, Liam Gallagher's eagerly awaited gigs will be the first by a band or solo act at the venue since Red Hot Chili Peppers back in 2012.

The concerts will also be the biggest at Knebworth since Angels singer Robbie Williams entertained fans over three nights in 2003.

After initially selling out both dates, extra tickets for Liam Gallagher at Knebworth were released in April. Tickets are still available via Ticketmaster.

As the stage goes up in the Hertfordshire park, Knebworth House's Henry Lytton Cobbold is delighted to see historic gigs return.

“It’s great to be back doing what only Britain’s largest single stage venue can do," said Henry.
