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.
