Beady Eye kicked off the first of their three-show tour with an intimate concert at Manchester Ritz last night. The show mainly featured songs from the bands new BE album, which came in at No. 2 on the charts last weekend right behind Black Sabbath's 13.
Liam Gallagher maintained his usual subdued attitude, and didn't engage with the audience much until the end of the show when he said "You've been in good voice. Nice one for coming out, thanks." The band left the stage then returned with a encore of the band's debut single "Bring The Light".
Beady also featured two Oasis songs: "What's the Story Morning Glory?" and "Rock & Roll Star". Gallagher dedicated the two songs to the previous Oasis guitar player, Paul 'Bonehead' Arthur. Arthur quit Oasis in 1999, but left on respectful terms with the band members. Which brings up another point, where is Noel Gallagher? Haven't heard much from him since Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds in 2011.
Can't the brothers just settle their differences and give the fans what they really want? An Oasis reunion. Hey, if the Jonas Brothers can get along then you guys can too.
Beady Eye will perform the two remaining shows of their at London's Camden Centre tonight (June 20) and Glasgow's ABC on June 22.
