They’re also playing not far south of the border at Newcastle City Hall on Monday, March 18, and at their home-town of Manchester’s O2 Apollo on Wednesday and Thursday, March 20 and 21.

Former Oasis frontman Gallagher, 51, and ex-Stone Roses guitarist Squire, 61, released their self-titled debut album last Friday, March 1, so it will chart later on today.

Gallagher said: “I think the people that are into the Stone Roses and Oasis and that kinda thing, I think they’ll love it. It’s spiritual, it’s crucial.”

Squire added: “I like the way that in some parts it's quite melancholic and it can make you well up, but there are other parts that are kind of irreverent, rude or crude. There's a little bit of everything in there. I think it's a really good mix.

“I had a hunch that we’d sound good together, but I wasn’t prepared for it to be such a good fit.”

Gallagher will be back in Glasgow for three further solo dates in the summer – at the city’s Ovo Hydro on Wednesday and Thursday, June 19 and 20, and to play at this year’s Trnsmt festival on Friday, July 12, with Garbage, the Snuts and Sugababes also on the bill.
