Liam Gallagher wants sons’ favourite rapper Skepta for London gig

Liam Gallagher wants U.K. grime star Skepta to support him at his solo concert in London’s Finsbury Park.
The former Oasis rocker, 45, is returning to the scene of one of his old band’s biggest gigs for a concert in June next year (18), and more than 40,000 tickets sold out in under five minutes.
Liam has promised two stages will be filled with top acts, and wants Mercury Prize winning grime musician Skepta to join him at the gig.
“It can’t all be (19)90s stuff, man,” he told Absolute Radio host Dave Berry. “We’ve got to mix it up a bit. I’d like to get Skepta playing, have something a bit different.”
The Britpop icon has discovered hip-hop music through his sons Lennon, 18, and Gene, 16, but admits he’s not an expert on it.
“My kids f**king love grime music,” he told GQ magazine. “Stormzy, Skepta – he seems pretty mad. I like him. They also like that bloke, WhatsApp Ricky (A$AP Rocky). You know, the American geezer, stylish, funny, gold teeth.”
Oasis played three outdoor concerts in Finsbury Park in 2002, gigs Liam describes as “f**king dangerous”.
The Wall of Glass singer was speaking to British radio host Dave ahead of a secret gig in London on Tuesday (07Nov17), where he mocked his estranged brother and old Oasis bandmate Noel by inviting fans to bring potato peelers.
Liam jokingly refers to Noel as “potato” and he took exception to him performing on British TV with a musician playing a pair of scissors – hence the request for a potato peeler.
