Liam Gallagher has revealed to NME that he will be playing some Oasis songs on tour that have not been performed in 20 years.

The 44-year-old rocker is about to head out on the road as a solo artist for the first time ever and he will be dipping into his former band's stellar back catalogue of albums and B-sides for his set list.

Liam is paying tribute to the group's third album 'Be Here Now', which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and will be playing the full seven minutes-plus version of number one single 'D'You Know What I Mean?' and the LP's title track which he says he has to play because the lyrics sum up who he is.

Referencing the lyrics to the track, he told NME magazine: "Sounds like the Rolling Stones. Gonna get a load of brass on it so it sounds f***ing filth. 'Kicking up a storm from the day I was born' - it's perfect. It's got me written all over it."

Revealing his reason for including 'D'You Know What I Mean?' - which was played on the hour every hour on BBC Radio 1 when it was unveiled back in July 1997 - he added: "All seven minutes of it. I'm not doing it for the 'Be Here Now' anniversary. I couldn't give a f**k."

The 'Songbird' songwriter also revealed that 'Rock 'n' Roll Star' and 'Slide Away' from Oasis' 1994 debut LP 'Definitely Maybe', 'Morning Glory' from their 1995 follow-up '(What's the Story) Morning Glory?' and fan favourite 'Rockin ' Chair' - the B-side to their 1995 number two single 'Roll With It' sometimes played by his estranged brother Noel Gallagher live - will also "definitely" be in his set list.

In an interview with NME, Liam Gallagher denied rumours of feud with The Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown and with the members of the legendary Manchester band.

Liam Gallagher's new album 'As You Were' will be released in October whereas his new single 'Walls of Glass' will drop on June 2nd via Warner.
