The controversial Gallagher brother closed the first day of the Chelmsford festival and dedicated an Oasis song to someone.
Liam’s Friday set featured some of his new solo material including the hit single “For what it’s worth” but it was also littered with Oasis classics like “Rock ‘n’ Roll star” and “Wonderwall.”
Gallagher went on to dedicate another Oasis classic, “Live Forever” to the late soul singer Aretha Franklin.
The former oasis frontman said: “She had the best voice in the universe.”
The American performer died tragically of pancreatic cancer aged 79 on Thursday, August 16.
