Liam Gallagher announces free concert for health care workers

LIAM GALLAGHER has announced a free concert for NHS workers to thank them for their work during the coronavirus crisis.

The musician took to Twitter on Friday where he announced to his 3.3 million followers that he would have the "honour" of performing free of charge to thank the "incredible" NHS staff.

"It's an honour to announce that I will be doing a gig for the NHS and careworkers at London’s The O2 on October 29th," Gallagher said.

"They do an incredible job, we are very lucky to have them," he added, before signing off with his usual "LG x".

The former Oasis star will take to the stage with some special guests at London's O2 Arena on Thursday, 29 October 2020, in the hopes social distancing measures will have been lifted by then.

The news drew thousands of comments from fans, including NHS workers who were excited to reap the reward, with one front line worker, Rachel Bone, saying "Thank you so much! Oasis fan from the start! Top lad!" accompanied by a picture of her in Personal Protective Equipment.

Liam has previously expressed his desire for Oasis to reunite for a benefit concert once restrictions had been lifted, and later said Oasis would get back together "with or without" his brother Noel-- but it seems Liam has decided to take matters into his own hands.

Gallagher is not the only Irish act who has announced a concert thanking front line workers-- at the beginning of April, global stars The Script announced plans for a free Dublin concert for HSE, NHS and Primary Care workers across Ireland in February 2021.
