Gene Gallagher's band Villanelle are set to embark on their first UK tour.

Liam Gallagher's 22-year-old son - whom he has with ex-wife, Nicole Appleton, of All Saints fame - and his bandmates will kick off their intimate run at Glasgow's Stereo on November 19.

They will then head to Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol, Nottingham, and wrap at London's Oslo on November 28.

Tickets go on sale on Friday (21.06.24) at 9am.

The group - completed by Ben Taylor (guitar), Jack Schiavo (bass) and Andrew Richmond (drums) - only formed earlier this year and have already opened for Liam on his solo 'Definitely Maybe' 30th anniversary tour, playing to the masses at London's The O2 several times.

The Britpop legend invited Gene and co on the road with him after he was impressed by the group's early gigs, including at London rock ‘n’ roll pub The Marquis.

Villanelle having been busy penning music and will share news of their first release soon.

Former Oasis rocker Liam's son Lennon Gallagher, 24, whose mother is actress Patsy Kensit, also has a band called Automation.

The 'Stand By Me' hitmaker previously offered up some wise words to his offspring but admitted he's letting the pair do things their way.

What's more, the 51-year-old star insisted he won't be getting involved if the pair end up growing apart like he and his estranged brother and former bandmate Noel Gallagher, 57, did.

When asked by one Twitter follower if he has any advice for Lennon, he replied: "Have fun keep it surreal beware of massive *****. (sic)"

And when another user said, "Don't let Lennon stay away from Gene we don't want the same story," the 'Wall of Glass' hitmaker responded: "I’m staying out of it there both doing there own thing which is fair enough (sic)"
