Posted in music | tour dates on March 7, 2011

by Bill Pearis

Liam Gallagher is ruling Glasgow before he has even come on: 2,000 voices roar his name, mixing this with a booze-sozzled chant that carries on throughout the gig: "Beady! Beady! Beady fuckin' aye!"

Oasis may be no more, but if this lot are missing Noel Gallagher, it doesn't show. Still, it's hard to pinpoint exactly what Liam does that has made him the sort of idol who comes along once a generation. He wears a motorcycle jacket buttoned up (helpful for dodging the traditional Glasgow welcome of hurled beer). He edges a hand towards his private regions (not quite a Michael Jackson crotch grab, more like scratching an itch). He stands motionless and casts, yes, a beady eye over the crowd. Yet somehow his presence in this medium-size hall (as opposed to an Oasis-size arena) is formidable. [The Guardian]

That's a review of Beady Eye's show in Glagow this past Friday night. The band, basically Oasis minus Noel Gallagher, released their debut album, Different Gear, Still Speeding, last week. It pretty much sounds like what you think it going to, though guitarists Gem Archer and Andy Bell (who was in Ride) show that Noel wasn't the only one capable of writing melodies that sound a lot like The Beatles and The Las. When it sticks to rockers, it's actually pretty good.

Beady Eye have just announced their first ever American dates, including a June 23 stop at Webster Hall. Tickets ($40) for that show go on sale this Friday (3/11) at noon.

A couple Beady Eye videos are below, along with their cover art and announced North American tour dates....

The record is actually pretty good...a lot better than the last Oasis record. I'm actually excited about this.

Oasis on Bedford Avenue and 6th street makes a low quality hummus.

From what I've heard, this is actually better than Oasis was for the past decade, but still, 40 clams to see Liam Gallagher?!?!?!

Webster Hall - perfect. Liam will own the place. Can't wait.

$40... i'd rather slam the tip of my pinky finger in a door.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 4:24 PM

I don't know, 4:24, that sounds pretty painful.

However if it was, say, between slamming my pinky in the door or enduring a full night of Sufjan Stevens singing about wetting the bed, then the pinky wins.

Once, on my way to work, must of been 7:30 a.m. I saw Noel/Liam walking with two gorilla looking english dudes on 14th and 7th. They were wobbling around, clearly drunk and Liam was yelling at Noel, calling him a 'Yob'

Dude owns shit.

5:01,

If there was ever a time to bust out your camera and film something, that was it. Hilarious.

Won't play enough Oasis songs to justify the price

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 5:05 PM

This will be the best NYC show of 2011. No doubt. Mad for it!

A friend of mine once saw Liam at a bar in Paris. Walked up to him, said "hey, nice to meet you" Liam looked at him: "Who you mate. Fuck off you nipple.."

Dude is king.

No Oasis songs in current setlist

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 5:46 PM

They're not playing any Oasis songs, the current set is only a little over an hour. I actually dig the album and loved Oasis, but 40 bucks for this is lame.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 6:01 PM

This is a mid-level band touring on a debut album, tix should be 20 bucks, 25 max.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 6:58 PM

Someone should tell him that Blur was always a superior band.

I'll wait for Noel's solo album, he was always the better songwriter.

I never got in to Oasis, but I downloaded the Beady Eye and it is fucking insane! Hard on Rock!

I would like to see Noel play the encore at Webster Hall. anything could happen...

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 8:57 PM

Andy Bell is the lead guitarist now? Big promotion from Noel.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 8:59 PM

never loved oasis, but this is better than the new radiohead. lulz

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 9:02 PM

What the hell is going on here, why is everyone loving Beady Eye so much? Kind of expected all of these comments to be negative.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 9:09 PM

well this band was a secret! cool beans!,

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 9:52 PM

If Noel is going to show up to any of their shows, it will be New York.

Posted by Anonymous | March 7, 2011 9:54 PM

I would pay 40 dollars just to see Andy Bell.

Liam Gallagher is the hummus. Noel was the pita.

"Oasis on Bedford Avenue and 6th street makes a low quality hummus."

n7th street. never had their humus but the falafel is pretty decent for 3$ and this is coming from a 'falafel snob.' definitely better than no falafel.

Yeah Oasis isn't bad at all, and it's super cheap. Haters.

Posted by Anonymous | March 8, 2011 1:16 AM

Tickets were available all day yesterday for this "sold out" show kiddies

Posted by Anonymous | June 23, 2011 3:24 PM

It's true. There isn't a single Bowery Presents show that has "sold out" in years. EVERY BP show "sells out" and releases exactly 50 tickets the day before or the day of.

I've been trying to score tickets all week and it keeps coming up sold out. :(
