It’s had its fair share of problems - but Liam Gallagher is a fan of Co-op Live after his two opening gigs at Manchester’s newest venue.

The Oasis iconic described bringing his Definitely Maybe tour to the 23,500-seat arena near the Etihad Stadium as “biblical” and said along with his fans “they’d put the arena on the map”. Now after the second sell-out night on Sunday he’s gone one step further, comparing it to one of the most iconic concert settings in the world - Madison Square Garden.

Liam posted on X: “That new MCR arena is up there with NY MSG in my opinion as you were LG x”

Gallagher has four nights in all at Co-op Live, returning on June 27 and 28 after heading up to Glasgow for dates at the OVO Hydro on June 19 and 20. He is playing the seminal ‘Definitely Maybe’ record in full on the 30th anniversary of its release back in 1994. Fans are being treated to tracks that haven’t been played since the mid-1990s, some of which Liam has never sung live.

Are tickets still available for Liam Gallagher at Co-op Live?

Liam Gallagher’s four Co-op Live dates are sold out - such is the demand to see the Oasis icon. There may be some availability on resale sites including Ticketmaster and Twickets nearer to the gigs.
