Liam Gallagher, the former lead singer of Britpop superstars Oasis, is believed to be on his way to Henham Park in Suffolk for a secret performance.

The singer, whose solo career has taken off in leaps and bounds this year, tweeted a “welcome to Suffolk sign”, saying “Lovely, this time of year, so I hear”.

Liam Gallagher is expected to give his performance later today.

Mother-of-two Catherine Shipley, 28, of Oulton Broad, was excited about the Gallagher rumours: “Wow – it would be massive if Liam played.

“A real treat. I have come just for Saturday because I really want to see the Killers but add a legend to that would be immense.”

The singer had been due to play a series of shows across Europe later this year, but postponed the tour to concentrate on his second solo album. His debut solo offering, As You Were, released in October, has been one of the fast-selling albums of the decade.
