Keeping busy throughout the pandemic by regularly offering blunt, often biting slices of wisdom via his Twitter feed, Mancunian deity Liam Gallagher has now revealed he'll be dusting off the parka for a one-off global livestream performance filmed from London's Thames River.

'Down By The Thames' will see the former Oasis frontman's make headway in the livestream scene, promising a set made up of new tracks and the classics all from a barge sailing along the Thames on December 5th. 

Revealing the performance on his socials earlier this morning, Gallagher said: "To all my brothers and sisters around the world. I'm performing a one-off celestial live performance for you to stream, 'Down By The River Thames' on 5th December 2020. I'll be performing tracks from my two number 1 solo albums as well as some stone cold Oasis classics, some of which you haven't heard me sing for a long, long time. C'mon you know. LG x'

The announcement comes after several days of anticipation, with pictures of said performance being shared on social media over the weekend. 

We've yet to see a water-dwelling angle from a livestream set yet, so the stage set up on a barge is as typically big and bombastic as we'd come to expect from the outspoken icon.

Stream 1 – Saturday 5 December 8pm GMT for UK, Ireland and Europe.
