LIAM Gallagher is heading out on an arena tour after the 'Shockwave' of his new material.

The Oasis icon is releasing his second solo album, Why Me? Why Not, on September 20 and then the live shows start in November.

That includes a Manchester Arena show on November 20 and Liverpool Arena on November 21.

Lead single, Shockwave, shot straight to the top of the official vinyl and trending charts.

Liam will also be sharing his new track, The River, at Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage on Saturday evening.

It was co-written by producer Andrew Wyatt, who was a key collaborator on Liam's all-conquering solo album, As You Were.

Liam said: “I want the second album to be a step-up because the hardest thing to do is to make something the same, only better. So that’s what we’ve done. It’s a better record than As You Were, which is saying something, as that was epic, wasn’t it?”

Fans who pre-order Why Me? Why Not from Liam’s official store will receive access to an exclusive pre-sale for tour tickets.

The pre-sale opens at 9am on Wednesday, July 10, and continues until the general sale starts at 9am on Friday, July 12.
