In an intriguing revelation, Liam disclosed his intention to tackle the Noel Gallagher sung B-side ‘Half the World Away,’ famously used as the theme tune to the Royle Family. He excluded ‘Take Me Away’ from the setlist but confirmed the inclusion of ‘Half the World Away,’ sharing his enthusiasm for performing a song he has never sung before.
According to Planet Radio – Responding to inquiries about other potential B-side appearances, Liam mentioned his appreciation for ‘Cloudburst,’ a B-side to ‘Live Forever,’ hinting at its inclusion in the setlist.
