“Any Oasis fans here?” The answer from everyone was “duh,” as Liam Gallagher asked the crowd at Rough Trade, his second of two very intimate NYC shows of the weekend.
Even before he came out on stage, the tone was set with a banner of “ROCK N” ROLL” draped over the keyboard stand. Following suit, he opened the show with “Rock N’ Roll Star” followed by another Oasis song, “Morning Glory.” Still in his definitive stance, leaning forward to the mic with his hands clasped behind his back, he and his four-piece band (which included a member of Kasabian) sounded pretty much like you’d want/expect. Great start.
Some of the new stuff — rockers like “Wall of Glass” (very “Supersonic”) and “Greedy Soul” –recalled the heyday of Oasis; acoustic anthems like “Chinatown” and “Eh La” (which he said was the first time they’d ever played it live) didn’t fare quiet as well. He wisely ended his set with two more Oasis songs, “Be Here Now” and, of course, “Wonderwall,” which had nearly every person in the place holding up their phones while singing along.
