A collaborative event with adidas Spezial and END., the 500 capacity venue offered the perfect venue for an evening of the singer's classic brand of bolshie, rock'n'roll attitude.
END.: What's the inspiration behind your latest record?
Liam Gallagher: "Why Me? Why Not" is inspired by love, life and relationships.
END.: How is the album different from "As You Were"?
Liam Gallagher: The songs are bigger; it's a bigger production and as far as I'm concerned, the songs are even better.
END.: What's your first memory of adidas?
Liam Gallagher: My first pair of adidas was a pair of adidas Kick which I wore religiously. They were black with white stripes.
END.: How did you first become involved with adidas Spezial?
Liam Gallagher: I've known Gary Aspden for a long, long time. He's very generous and always sorts me out a few bits so it felt right that I should repay the favour by designing a shoe for them.
END.: Tell us about your favourite adidas shoes?
Liam Gallagher: My favourite adidas shoe is the adidas Barrington Smash.
END.: What inspired you to first use the MCFC Spezial banner on stage?
Liam Gallagher: Gary sent us over some beach towels and I thought to myself, that would look great on an amp so I asked if he'd make us up a flag.
END.: Why did you choose to partner with adidas Spezial on the first preview of the new album?
Liam Gallagher: adidas Spezial seemed to be the perfect partner for the gig as I wear the clobber and it's cool like me.
