Swoon city: Richard Ashcroft and Liam Gallagher are playing a few shows overseas together later this year and now they've announced they're teaming up for a North American tour. The two legends head to North America in May for a six-date engagement which does NOT include a Detroit date. If you'd like to see this dream tour, the general onsale for tickets is Friday, March 23rd. Pre-sales start March 21st and March 22nd, depending on the show. See the tour itinerary and ticket info down below.

In the early 90s prior to becoming massive, Oasis opened up for The Verve and later eclipsed their success. Liam Gallagher (and for that matter Noel) maintained a close friendship with Ashcroft and Liam appeared on a few Verve recordings, including "History," "Space and Time," and the brillant "Come On." In 2012 Ashcroft revealed a bit about Gallagher's participation on "Come On":

"If you concentrate you can hear some demented guy screaming "COME ON" and I imagine everyone thinks that's me, but I remember him doing it. He arrived at the studio in Barnes with a tape of a song he'd just done with John Squire. So he proceeded, as he does, and played it 15 times in a row in the studio, so I played him "Bittersweet" and I said we're doing "Come On" now -- you've got to be on it. He went into this booth with someone else and he was going ballistic at the end of it, smashing his tambourine against the side of the vocal booth."

In recent months Ashcroft also paid tribute to Gallagher at the Q Awards, calling him "the real fucking thing" and "the legend."



Liam Gallagher is touring in support of his debut solo album As You Were; Richard Ashcroft's latest solo record These People was released in 2016.
