Liam Gallagher, Stone Roses and Kasabian back bid to get Viola Beach to number one

A number of big names have added their weight to the campaign to get Viola Beach to number one in the UK Singles Chart.


All four members of the band and their manager were killed when their car fell 80ft from a bridge into a canal on the outskirts of Stockholm last Saturday. Following the tragedy, fans launched a social media campaign using the hashtag #ViolaBeach4number1 to get their debut single ‘Swings and Waterslides’ into the Top 40.

Liam Gallagher offered his support by sharing a link to download the track on his Twitter page.
Rock bands The Stone Roses and Kasabian also posted the single on social media and urged their fans to help get the track to top spot.

In their first TV interview few days ago, the family of the band’s manager Craig Tarry said that getting the single to number one would be the perfect tribute.
