Liam Gallagher coming to Metronome

The former Oasis frontman will be in Prague for the first time

Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher is going to perform in Prague for the first time.

He is joining the lineup at the Metronome Festival Prague, to be held June 21–22 at Výstaviště Holešovice.

He will perform a full 90-minute open-air concert with songs both from his current solo album As You Were as well as popular hits by Oasis.

His setlists tend to include the hits “Wonderwall,” “Rock 'n' Roll Star” and “Morning Glory” from the Oasis years, plus other songs such as “Champagne Supernova” or “D'You Know What I Mean?” that he plays less often.

Oasis was active between 1991 and 2009, when Liam’s brother Noel left the band to form his own group. Liam continued with former Oasis members under the name Beady Eye until 2014, and has been a solo act since. While there has been some talk of an Oasis reunion recently, so far it has not come to pass.

Liam has won a number of honors including the Godlike Genius Award from the 2018 NME Awards. In 2003 he won for Best Haircut. Oasis as a group won six Brit Awards and two Ivor Novello Awards, but no Grammys.

The previously announced lineup includes German electronic band Kraftwerk, who will present a show in 3D. They were last in Prague four years ago, with a similar show. The band is known for pioneering electronic dance pop on custom instruments, with hits like “The Man-Machine,” “Autobahn” and “Trans Europe Express.” On stage, they stand in front of computer consoles in trendy outfits, hitting buttons that seem to activate the various layers of musical tracks. The 3D show requires special glasses to see the video effects.

UK bands Morcheeba and Primal Scream are also scheduled to perform. Morcheeba, now a duo, has not been in Prague for six years, and will play songs from the 2018 album Blaze Away plus past hits. The band’s name refers to “middle of the road” and a slang word for cannabis. Primal Scream is a Scottish alternative band that dates back to the 1980s, but they hit it big in the 1990s with psychedelic dance music. They have recorded 11 albums to date.

Local bands will include Pražský výběr, which has roots going back to the 1970s. Frontman Michael Kocáb is a former minister of human rights and minority affairs (2009–10), and was a political dissident in the communist era.

More bands will be announced closer to the time of the festival.

Metronome started in 2016, with Iggy Pop and The Kooks as headliners the first year. Sting and Kasabian headlined in 2017, and Massive Attack and David Byrne played in 2018.

Early bird tickets are on sale until Jan. 21 at metronomefestival.cz/en or at Ticketportal. Starting Jan. 22, prices will go up.
