What makes Liam Gallagher a class act

International rock star Liam Gallagher belongs to that category of singers and artists who may be considered as in a class of their own.

As the former front man of the British rock band Oasis, Liam, together with his brother Noel, chalked up an impressive string of achievements that catapulted the group to worldwide fame and success.

At the same time, however, he got embroiled in personal troubles and disputes that provoked negative reactions and commentaries from the public that sullied his otherwise clean and wholesome reputation.

Rather than let his personal problems affect him and upend what he has successfully built for many years, he remained steadfast and confident as he met these challenges head-on. He continued to evolve as a singer and artist and stayed consistently on top until this very day despite the emergence of new talents with new sounds and new styles.

The remarkable way he handled and preserved his career amid daunting challenges makes Liam a class act.

Thousands of local rock enthusiasts will get to know the celebrated singer and his marvelous musical journey up close and personal when Liam Gallagher takes the spotlight during his much-anticipated one-night concert on Aug. 14 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Ovation Productions is bringing the British rocker for the Manila stop of his ongoing world tour to treat his Filipino audience to a string of Oasis classic hits, such as “Wonderwall,” “Don’t Look Back In Anger” and “Champagne Supernova.”

Liam is likewise expected to perform cuts from As You Were, his upcoming first solo album to be released on Oct. 6, such as “Wall of Glass” and “Greedy Soul.”

Named as the greatest front man of all time in a reader poll conducted by Q Magazine in 2010, Liam has been acclaimed as the face of Oasis, whose tribute to The Beatles has made the band nearly as big and as influential as the Fab Four.

Oasis has likewise been cited as a major influence and inspiration in the musical careers of many other well-known bands,  such as The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Maroon 5 and Coldplay, among others.

Together with Noel at its helm, Liam steered the five-piece rock band from Manchester, England to great heights of international acclaim and commercial success, ultimately becoming the defining musical act for a generation,  

Liam’s singing voice has often been compared to that of John Lennon, leading him to admit that he has no clear influence in his music other than John Lennon and “music” itself. He has been known to incorporate many different forms, such as punk, indie and New Wave, and recently has explored elements of jazz during his stint with Beady Eye, the band he formed after Oasis broke up in 2009.
