MTV International has announced that MTV Unplugged will make a UK comeback featuring megastar Liam Gallagher.
Gallagher was initially intended to perform on MTV Unplugged back in 1996 during his stint in Oasis, however, the rock ‘n’ roll star had to pull out due to medical reasons.
More than 20 years on, the award-winning music series will see the singer/songwriter perform a special set including chart topping tracks from his solo career and much-loved Oasis classics.
“I’m honoured to be performing at the legendary showcase that is MTV Unplugged,” said Gallagher.
“I’ll be playing songs from my number-one debut solo album, I’ll be playing some stone cold classics from the mighty Oasis and I’ll be showcasing some of my new songs from my upcoming second solo album ‘Why Me? Why Not.’”
MTV Unplugged first aired in 1989 and has since allowed music fans across the world to enjoy their favourite artists at home, with jaw dropping performances from Nirvana, Jay-Z, George Michael, The Cranberries, Rod Stewart and more recent specials featuring Florence and the Machine, Shawn Mendes and The Who.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing the franchise back to the UK, and to markets around the world, for a whole new generation of music fans,” said Bruce Gillmer, Global Head of Music and Talent at MTV.
“As always with Liam Gallagher, we can guarantee it’s going to be an incredible night full of surprises.”
The special one-off set will be held on Saturday 3 August at Hull City Hall and will air on Friday 27 September across MTV international channels.
