The last time Liam Gallagher swaggered his way onto a Welsh stage was at the spacious surrounds of The Millennium Stadium in June 2009.
Fast forward almost two years and the more vociferous half of the Gallagher brothers was back in Wales, in front of approximately 60,000 less people than witnessed what was probably the last appearance of Oasis in Wales.
Unsurprisingly, tickets for Beady Eye’s Spring UK tour sold out in hours, and the 2,000-capacity Newport Centre was fit to burst with the mad-for-it crowd ecstatically lapping up each song.
They were treated to a thorough run-through of Beady Eye’s debut album, Different Gear, Still Speeding, delivered with style and panache by Gallagher and his immaculately turned-out gang.
We got the TNT-packed, one-foot-on-the-monitor opener Four-Letter Word, one of several leather-clad wig-outs that give Beady Eye’s set a bruising sonic edge.
However, it’s moments such as deft ’70s rocker Millionaire, blistering rock ‘n’ roll barnstormer Bring The Light, plaintive psych-folk lament Kill For A Dream and the dreamy headspace of The Beat Goes On that got the adrenaline pumping.
