People on social media are torn over a clip that appears to show Liam Gallagher, or a very impressive lookalike, doing an impromptu performance at a local pub in Kent.
The video has had thousands of likes and shares, not to mention countless views, as people online are struggling to suss whether it is actually Liam or not.
Originally shared to TikTok by user Jake Body, the video of the supposed surprise Liam Gallagher gig was captured in a local pub in Halling, a small village located in the North Downs part of Kent and seems to have plenty of people commenting that it was indeed him.
That being said, there are just as many saying the opposite and we’re now at the point where we really don’t know what we believe anymore.
As you can see, it doesn’t just look like him, the individual (whoever he is) sounds and stands exactly like him too. It’s beyond uncanny.
Again, it’s not like we haven’t seen lookalikes and people doing that very recognisable impression before but to have all three in one video, you have to admit there’s part of you that makes you second-guess yourself.
Many online have noted that the 50-year-old has recently had hip surgery and so it’s unlikely that he just decided to head down to a random boozer and do a surprise performance.
On the other hand, he did recently decide to book a skiing holiday for the following week just days later.
Busy bloke but he could have squeezed in a quick set, we suppose? That being said, someone did rather amusingly remark that he had to cut his performance short by 30 minutes.
Despite several people commenting and tagging the man himself and saying things like “thanks for the picture!” and so on, they do fail to provide any further evidence to prove whether it was actually him.
However, it’s worth noting that the younger Oasis brother has unassumingly popped into his fair share of watering holes in the past and even did enjoy a jamming session with some other locals in County Mayo, Ireland a few years back, so a surprise Liam Gallagher gig in a pub isn’t as unlikely as it sounds.
Guess the only way we’ll find out for sure is to hear it from the horse’s mouth. Fingers crossed he clears up the debate.
Graeme’s post drew in thousands of messages of love and support, including from Vernon Kay, Sacha Lord, and DJ Paulette.
He shared last night: “Thank you for all of your kind, supportive words regarding my son. Much appreciated.
“I won’t be DJing in Huddersfield, London or Manchester this weekend, there will be no radio shows and there may be a delay to recent merchandise orders too. Please bear with me. Back soon.”

The View, Brooke Combe, Corella and more join the Neighbourhood Weekender 2023 lineup
More acts have joined the Neighbourhood Weekender lineup for 2023 and as well as some big names, it looks like there’s going to be even more Manc music on show this year. You love to see it.
Neighbourhood 2023 is already shaping up to be an absolute belter with the likes of Pulp, The Kooks, Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbot, The Wombats, Anne Marie and countless other huge others already announced for this year.
But if there’s one thing we know about the Warrington weekender it’s that there are always more surprises down the line, right up until the last minute, and to whet your appetite for the festival favourite.
The latest from the organisers is that several new artists are now joining the NBHD lineup, such as Scottish stars and veritable indie veteran The View, fellow compatriot Brooke Combe (one of the most exciting new soloists we’ve heard in a long time), The Goa Express from Burnley and 14 other acts.
One of the names we’re most excited to see playing on the Sunday are local lads, Corella. Named after an indigenous Australian bird, the rock and indie quarter are former BIMM students who are quickly becoming one of the most talked-about groups in the city.
Since then, they’ve gone from strength to strength and now, fresh from their sellout gig at Gorilla — which they hailed as “a dream come true” and a “moment we will never forget” — they’ll be following it up with a full Weekender slot in just a couple month’s time.
If their performance at Gorilla and at last year’s Neighbourhood Festival in the city is anything to go by, they’re going to absolutely smash it.
Neighbourhood Weekender 2023’s lineup is sounding more and more like it could go down as a year you don’t want to miss.
The weekend of gigs kicks at the beautiful Victoria Park in Warrington on 27 May and last until the following Sunday. However, to make things even better there’s also going to be a massive warm-up show featuring The Stone Roses’ Ian Brown, Happy Mondays and more.
