Beady Eye first concert: Braveheart spirit, beer flying. Oasis are back! +videos

GLASGOW - Jump jump jump! Brilliant Beady Eye! It's time to have fun.

"How we doing? All right?" was Liam's first exchange with the crowd.
And the fans sang aloud to every song, which was impressive since the album was only released on Monday.
Liam's parting words were: "Thanks, it means a lot," as he left the stage.

There is no gig tougher, or better if you get it right, than Glasgow's Barrowlands. And tonight Liam Gallagher found Scottish Oasis fans in loyal mood as they backed his new band with Braveheart spirit - and lots of warm lager.
The rock superstar's new gang Beady Eye played their first ever gig, and came out all guns blazing.
The venue was buzzing as diehard punters clamoured to see Britpop history in the making.
Liam led from the front, watched by his missus Nicole Appleton.
The lads' eyes were bulging and they were clearly desperate to prove they are the real deal.
They dropped the hammer with opener Four Letter Word and kept up a storming pace, belting out singles The Roller and Bring The Light early doors.
They played every track from debut album Different Gear, Still Speeding bar one, the six-minute Wigwam.
The album - set for a top three spot in Sunday's chart - works far better live, sounding less polished and with much more bite.
The insane crowd reaction seemed to shock the band but they took it all in.
And the intimate setting didn't always go down well with Liam as fans kept soaking his leather jacket with pints of lager, forcing him to ask for a towel from roadies.
The band are back at the venue tonight before hitting Manchester and London, then setting off on a European tour.
Not a bad start at all.

Beady Eye made their live debut in Glasgow tonight (March 3), playing for just over an hour to a packed crowd at the city's Barrowlandsvenue.
Stage-banter was kept to a minimum by Liam Gallagher's new band throughout the 14-song show, and the singer made no reference to his estranged brother Noel or his old band Oasis.
Beady Eye's first song was 'Four Letter Word', played shortly after 9pm (GMT). They followed it with a set made up largely of tracks from their new album. Before playing 'Bring The Light', Gallagher did address the crowd, saying: "Right, I reckon it's time to get off the fence, yeah? Because I've seen a few of you sitting on it."
The Scottish audience reacted positively to the band throughout, chanting Gallagher's name in between each song. Although most of the tracks the band played were faithful in sound to their recorded counterparts, the Andy Bell-penned 'Millionaire' was given a distinctly more electric-feel than on the album.
The band ended their set with their cover of World Of Twist's 'Sons Of The Stage'. Gallagher thanked the crowd for "coming along and checking it out" before leaving the stage.

the crowd was chanting: 'Beady! Beady! Beady fucking Eye!'

It was surely no coincidence that Liam Gallagher chose Glasgow's most fiery venue for this debut live appearance by his post-Oasis project. His old band had its ups and downs – internally and in terms of critical reception over their lifespan – but this city remained vocal in its appreciation of their supremely confident self-possession.
Really, all he had to do was turn up and be himself, and the wildest of receptions was assured.
With the Stone Roses' "I Am the Resurrection" heralding Beady Eye's arrival (appropriate, given Gallagher's unspoken need to position himself as the sole star of what was once a two-Gallagher show), the already onside crowd greeted the singer with a chant of his own name. In return, he granted them one of the great understated entrances – a slow slouch to the mic and then an accusing "try fuckin' harder". Everyone duly obliged. The king is surely back, as far as his people are concerned.
Backed by a five-piece live band that included all three of Oasis's members at their dissolution, bar the only one who quit, Liam's brother Noel, Gallager kicked off with "Four Letter Word". It was a typically brash and confident opener from the Barbour-jacket wearing singer. "Nothing ever lasts forever," the lyrics declare in loaded fashion. "A four-letter word really gets my meaning." As ever, and despite the clothing label and the millions in the bank, Liam Gallagher on the live stage still resembles a curse word made primal flesh.
Those old reference points stand unchanged, as was in evidence by the second track, a beat group shuffle speeded up to manic pace named "Beatles & Stones". It was, perversely, one of the highlights of the set, an homage to the relatively narrow range of influences Gallagher enjoys, but still a world away from the string-laden "Hey Jude" and Imagine-isms which Oasis flogged long past death.
Credit is due here, because this band sound encouragingly refreshed, an assertion that could very rarely be levelled at Oasis in their later years. Of course there was nothing here to alienate the longtime, Knebworth-attending devotee, but you realise watching them that Beady Eye are in the very unique position of possessing iconic impetus while being newly unchained from the weight if their past.
The set veered from expansive Floydian psychedelia to the pleasing La's jangle of "For Anyone". These and "The Roller", a comeback song which dared to stroll at its own pace, all came early in the set and were greeted with that most Glaswegian of appreciation gestures, the thrown (plastic) pint glass.
A decision had clearly been taken to play no Oasis songs. It was a brave and creditable choice, although this meant the set stretched to only an hour and suffered a fallow period in the middle. Yet Gallagher noted this with a pithy "right, this is another new song" before the All the Young Dudes-like epic "The Beat Goes On", declaring "stick with us, we'll have more by next year." This is a band to stick with through enjoyment more than force of habit.
