Liam Gallagher announces tour dates

Liam Gallagher has announced his first shows with new band Beady Eye.
The group, effectively Oasis without guitarist Noel Gallagher, Liam's brother, will kick off their six-date tour in Glasgow early next year.
Earlier this month the band gave fans a first taste of their recordings with a free download from their website.
Beady Eye will play their first show at the Barrowlands venue on March 3. Oasis played there a decade ago as part of their tenth anniversary tour. Glasgow also has a key place in the Oasis story as it was a performance at the city's King Tut's Wah Wah Hut which led to the band being signed by Creation Records boss Alan McGee.
Beady Eye features Liam on vocals, as well as Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock.
The live band will also feature bass player Jeff Wootton - who is currently playing with Gorillaz - and Mat Jones on keyboards.
Their tour will move on to the Manchester Apollo and London's Troxy and tickets go on sale on Friday.
Oasis fell apart last year after Noel walked out on the band following years of internal friction.
