No Oasis tunes in Beady Eye set

Liam Gallagher won't be performing Oasis tracks on tour

Liam Gallagher's new band have ruled out performing any Oasis songs when they play their debut tour in the new year.

The group Beady Eye announced their first live show will take place in Glasgow in March with five other UK dates to follow.

But the show will not feature any of the songs which have made frontman Liam - and the rest of the group, made up of ex-Oasis musicians - into stars.

In an interview in the January edition of Q magazine, on sale from Friday, guitarist Gem Archer said: "We're just buzzing about this band and looking forward to the album coming out and getting out on the road.

"And there'll be no Oasis songs, either, if you were going to ask."

The new group formed after Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher, Liam's brother, walked out on the band after years of internal friction.

Despite the bad blood between the Gallagher brothers, Archer said Noel remained on good terms with the others.

But he was unable to say whether he expected the former band leader to reform Oasis in the future.

"Give us a chance man, no one's thinking that far ahead," he told Q.
