Liam Gallagher won't play Oasis or Stone Roses songs on new tour
Liam Gallagher has insisted he won't be performing any songs by Oasis or The Stone Roses when he hits the road with John Squire for a tour later this year
Liam Gallagher won't be performing any songs by Oasis or The Stone Roses when he hits the road with John Squire.
The former Oasis singer has teamed with The Stone Roses guitarist to record a self-titled joint album - featuring the singles Just Another Rainbow' and 'Mars to Liverpool’ - and they will be taking their new music on the road for a series of intimate shows in the UK, Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, and America - but Liam has insisted they won't be playing any of their old material because it would feel "naff".
Speaking to Radio X host Johnny Vaughan, Liam explained: "Nah, not doing any of that [Oasis or The Stone Roses songs]. It’s gonna be just this album and maybe a few covers that we might get round to doing, but it won’t be our other bands and that, ‘cause that’s naff ...
"Them songs mean too much to me man for me to be howling over. I wouldn’t mind howling over the Oasis ones and that ... [But] no, but they just mean too much to me."
He then went on to name his favourite Stone Roses songs, and Liam replied: "'I Am The Resurrection', 'Waterfall', 'Made of Stone', all of them. I like all the backwards stuff as well … 'The Foz'. That’s a beauty."
The pair's album - titled 'Liam Gallagher and John Squire' - is released on March 1 and the tour kicks off at Glasgow's Barrowland on March 13.
Liam previously said of the project: "I can't wait for people to hear the album. I think the people that are into the Stone Roses and Oasis and that kinda thing, I think they'll ... love it. It's spiritual, it's crucial."
John added: "I like the way that in some parts, [the album is] quite melancholic and it can make you well up, but there are other parts that are kind of irreverent, rude or crude. There's a little bit of everything in there, I think it's a really good mix.
"I had a hunch that we’d sound good together, but I wasn’t prepared for it to be such a good fit."
