Sky is kicking off the summer festival season with a one-off special featuring interviews and performances from iconic rockstar Liam Gallagher.
The new show, titled Liam Gallagher 48 hours at Rockfield, will give viewers unparalleled access to the former Oasis frontman, as he heads to Rockfield Studios in Wales with his sons – Lennon and Gene – for 48 hours of music, memories and mayhem.
The show will be simulcast on Sky Max, Sky Arts and NOW at 9pm on May 24th.
Ahead of the release of his new album, C’Mon You Know, and a packed summer schedule of gigs including a return to Knebworth, Gallagher wants to relax with his sons in two of his favourite places – the studio and the pub – and he’s invited Sky to join them. The show will feature intimate session performances cut with candid conversations and family insights, and hold a magnifying glass over Gallagher’s life; past and present.
At Rockfield Studios – the first residential recording studio and host to the likes of Iggy Pop, Black Sabbath, Queen and Oasis – viewers will see exclusive tracks from the upcoming album, plus some Oasis classics – in-between these studio sessions, Gallagher will chat about music, song writing and his upcoming tour.
Then, at a Welsh country pub, Gallagher will speak about all the important things to him: approaching 50, fatherhood, family, his biggest regrets, greatest achievements, loves and hates, one-liners, his rock n roll career, performing at Knebworth (again), lockdown and more.
“It’s gonna be biblical,” Gallagher commented. “It was great to go back to Rockfield after all these years and see the old firm looking so well. It brought back many memories, of which I can’t remember.”
Phil Edgar-Jones Director of Sky Arts said: “If the Sky Arts team were to compile a list of national treasures Liam Gallagher would be right up there. He embodies the joy and the danger of rock n roll and his new material sits comfortably with Oasis at its best. We’re pleased to welcome him as the new problem child in the Sky Arts family.”
Kate Shepherd, Managing Director, Warner Music Entertainment UK, added: “Liam is truly a man of the people and this documentary captures him in his most natural environment – playing with his band, interacting with the locals and being with his sons. It was a special moment to witness Liam return to Rockfield, one of Britain’s most iconic studios, after 27 years. Fans are going to love the intimate moments we caught and how the real Liam shines through. We’re delighted to be able partner with Sky on this.”
