Liam Gallagher's new band Beady Eye has added its name to this year's Belsonic line-up, with the rocker claiming that his first festival appearance in the city is “long overdue”.

The band, made up of ex-Oasis members Gallagher, Gem Archer and Andy Bell, played to a packed Ulster Hall last month, with loudmouth Liam pledging a return visit in the near future.

Announcing their headline slot at Belsonic on Saturday, August 20, Gallagher said Belfast was a special place for him to play.

“The people in Northern Ireland are always so up for it — they just get it,” he said.

“It's like they know something nobody else does. But we've never played a festival in Belfast. It's about time I played an outdoor gig in the city, long overdue.”

Beady Eye and 30 Seconds To Mars tickets go on sale Friday May 6 at 9am on www. belsonic.com, Ticketmaster outlets, www.ticketmaster.ie and The Stiff Kitten.

Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
