Liam Gallagher dedicates Glastonbury performance of 'Champagne Supernova' to Keith Flint
A lovely touch from our kid.
Ten years at Slane, Oasis may have been the headline act but to many people, The Prodigy stole the show. Of course, when it came to iconic frontmen, just like Liam Gallagher, it's arguable that Keith Flint was unlike anyone else.
Right from the off, Flint's aura was the perfect mix of dangerous, magnetic, and pure fun. It also helped that The Prodigy created some absolutely iconic albums like Music for the Jilted Generation, The Fat of the Land, Experience, Invaders Must Die, and more.
Right now, things are looking pretty good for Liam Gallagher with a new album on the way, a worldwide tour - including an Irish date - and a documentary to boot.
However, the former Oasis and Beady Eye singer was in a reflective mood as he took to the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury on Saturday.
Gallagher played a fair chunk of his solo material – including the live debut of new single ‘The River’ – but he also played a fair amount of Oasis tracks too - Rock n Roll Star, Wonderwall, Morning Glory, Supersonic, Slide Away, Roll With It, Cigarettes & Alcohol.
However, it was Gallagher's last song that really struck a chord with viewers as he dedicated it to the much-missed frontman on The Prodigy.
"Right you’ve been amazing. This is the last song, I want to dedicate it to the one and only Keith Flint. ‘Champagne Supernova’. Look after yourselves, have a good night," said Liam before giving us a belting version of the beloved anthem.
Take a look.
