Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher looks set to play a festival gig with The Verve's Richard Ashcroft in Norway.

Gallagher and Ashcroft have been named on the bill at Bergenfest which takes place between June 14-17.

His debut solo album is set to be released later this year, and Gallagher has also confirmed a gig in London as part of Give A Gig week in March.

Ashcroft told Q magazine: “I played a show with Noel a few months ago and I’m playing with Liam later in the year.”

“I wouldn’t be daft enough to give Liam any advice on going solo. He can just be himself and do what he loves and people will connect to it.

“We miss those characters, these people with an opinion. Most people just don’t [give an opinion] unless they believe they’re getting some sort of PC credit. Then they’re out there, appeal after appeal, holding babies and making everyone feel really guilty and miserable around Christmas.”
