Exploring Songs on Liam Gallagher's Why Me? Why Not Tour Setlist

Liam Gallagher is in the midst of a massive, UK arena tour in support of his sophomore solo album, Why Me? Why Not, which was released on September 20. The album features singles "Shockwave," "The River," "Once," "One of Us" and "Now That I've Found You."
The former Oasis frontman kicked off his Why Me? Why Not Tour on November 11 in Cardiff, and is expected to wrap things up December 20 in Parnell, New Zealand. He's brought along Northampton rapper Slowthai for support, praising his "Johnny Rotten vibe."
The tour has seen the debut of several new songs, as well as solo licks from 2017's As You Were and Oasis classics. Check out one of his recent setlists:

Everyone knows songs like "Wonderwall," "Lyla" and "Morning Glory," but what about some of Gallagher's solo work? Cue up our Why Me? Why Not Tour Setlist Playlist on Spotify and keep reading for a look at some of the new solo cuts he's been playing on tour.

"Wall Of Glass"

"Wall Of Glass" was Gallagher's debut solo single, released ahead of his 2017 album As You Were. The song debuted at No. 60 on the UK Singles Chart upon its initial release, but shot up to No. 21 following his performance at One Love Manchester a few days later.
Today, it's his most-played song as a solo artist, having been played live 164 times.

This track was the lead single of Why Me? Why Not, and was released the same day as the album announcement. It's been played 35 times since its June debut, and is usually played between "Morning Glory" and "For What It's Worth" in his live shows.
Liam Gallagher, "Shockwave"


This poignant, acoustic ballad was the album's third single, and one dear to Gallagher's heart. The singer calls it one of the best songs he's ever made:

"But oh, I remember how you used to shine back then / You went down so easy like a glass of wine, my friend / When the dawn came up you felt so inspired to do it again / But it turns out you only get to do it once," he sings in the song's hook.
He debuted the song at an MTV Unplugged session at Hull City Hall in August. It's since been performed 25 times.

"The River"

On this reflective track, Gallagher urges the younger generation to question the "Thought Police," and other members of authority. "Don’t believe celebrities," he sings,"the money-suckin' MPs / The device in your hands / imitation beauty."
It was released as the second single for As You Were, and has been played live 32 times since its debut at Glastonbury Festival.

Okay, fine. We couldn't resist adding in at least one Oasis song!

"Champagne Supernova"

Gallagher usually saves this song for last. It was written by his brother, Noel, for Oasis' sophomore record (What's the Story) Morning Glory?. It peaked at No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the group's third Top 40 single on that chart.
After Noel left the band following a 2009 performance at V Festival, "Champagne Supernova" marked the last original song the band performed live together.
Liam has since performed the song 48 times on his own.
