Joined by the Lightning Seeds’s Ian Broudie and Ringo Starr’s son Zak Starkey, the group will reportedly play My Generation on 12 June
No 90s revival would be complete without at least one Gallagher brother on board. It’s just as well, then, that Liam Gallagher will join forces with the Who’s Roger Daltrey, the Lightning Seeds’s Ian Broudie and Ringo Starr’s son Zak Starkey for the return of TFI Friday on 12 June. At the request of Chris Evans, the supergroup will perform for the one-off episode, and are said to be covering the Who’s My Generation.
“Liam’s got a bit of time on his hands since Beady Eye called it a day last year, so he fancied trying his hand at something new,” a source recently told the Sun. “He’s told his mates he’s pretty bored. Other than Noel, you would be hard pushed to find a better set of bandmates than Roger, Ian and Zak. It’s a proper supergroup and the performance will be something to remember.”
The group, who are as yet unnamed, will celebrate the TV show’s return alongside Blur, Stone Roses, Rudimental and Years & Years.
It is not the first time members of this all-star lineup have appeared on the same bill: in November 2014, for the Who’s annual event for Teenage Cancer Trust, the house band for the evening included Zak Starkey, whileLiam Gallagher covered My Generation, footage of which you can watch below.
