Watch Liam Gallagher send a message to brother Noel as he kicks off Definitely Maybe tour in Sheffield

Liam Gallagher sent a message to brother Noel when he kicked off his Definitely Maybe tour in Sheffield.

Liam, 51, is on road this summer to mark 30 years since the release of the seminal Oasis record Definitely Maybe. The tour will see Liam perform Oasis album Definitely Maybe album in full for the first time along with some select b-sides from the era. Liam kicked off on the major run of shows at Utilita Arena Sheffield on Saturday evening.

Of course, following their much-publicised fallout Liam’s brother Noel Gallagher will not be appearing on tour - barring any unexpected appearance. Unsurprisingly, Noel didn’t show up on Saturday at the Sheffield venue.

Although, Liam did send a brief message to Noel. Ahead of singing the lead vocals on Half The World Away for the first time, Liam said: “This one goes out to my brother.” Noel is known for singing the theme tune to The Royle Family.

The gesture came across as an affectionate nod to the other famous Gallagher. Despite their famous Oasis-fallout, Noel featured on the big screens regularly during Saturday evening’s show in nostalgic clips.

Fans were full of praise for the Half The World Away tribute on X. One fan @J_Semps posted: “Liam dedicating Half The World Away to Noel in Sheffield tonight. Brilliant.”

While @TomShucksmith said: “Liam Gallagher singing Half The World Away was not on my 2024 bingo card. That’s for sure! #oasis.” Another fan @Barrymccarthy wrote: “No surprise that Liam would absolutely smash Half The World Away.”

Whatever, Cigarettes and Alcohol and Married With Children were highlights of the Definitely Maybe tour opener. You can read the full review from Liam Gallagher's Sheffield show here.
