Liam Gallagher was mobbed by Oasis and Beady Eye fans as he stepped off a train at Manchester Piccadilly on Tuesday (June 11, 2013) to launch his new album BE in his hometown. Liam - wearing his trademark mac, jeans and desert shoes combo - signed autographs and posed for photographs on the train platform before heading to HMV on Market Street to launch the record.
Busy commuters stopped in their tracks and pulled out smartphones as the Manchester legend paraded through the city centre. Later, Gallagher invited 100 fans to an after-party at his designer store Pretty Green on King Street, reports the Manchester Evening News.
"On my way to Manchester centre of the universe," Liam had tweeted earlier in the day, before arriving in the north-west with band mates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock for an acoustic gig of tracks from the new album.
Though Beady Eye's sophomore album is likely to perform strongly in the charts, Gallagher remains keen on an Oasis reformation to mark the band's 20th anniversary of Definitely, Maybe, in 2014. "People ask would I get Oasis back together. I'd do it for nowt, but if someone's going to drop a load of f****** money, I'd do it for that too," he told NME recently, "I don't think we'd ever make another record. I doubt we'll ever get back together.If we do, it'd be nice to do that f****** thing that's coming up (the 20th anniversary). I'd be up for that.But I'd still go back to Beady Eye and Noel would go back to his thing."
