Liam Gallagher starts his new solo chapter today with a gig in Manchester.

The former Oasis frontman announced the gig last week in the wake of the terror attack at the Manchester Arena.

Liam has also announced that all of the profits from the gig at Manchester's O2 Ritz venue will go to the victims of the attack.

The new mini-tour was supposed to be announced after it was finely tuned, but after the suicide bomb attack Liam decided to bring it forward to tonight.
