The online event will help celebrate the arrival of Gallagher’s ‘MTV Unplugged’ album, which was recorded last summer at Hull City Hall.
The ‘MTV Unplugged’ listening party is set to kick off at 7PM UK time on Friday.

Speaking about the event, Burgess commented: “Ever since I first saw Liam perform, at In The City way back in 1992, I’ve always been a big fan. It’s an honour to have Liam join us — the listening parties are a beautiful thing.”
The set that was recorded for the live album saw Gallagher deliver his first ever live vocal performance of the ‘Definitely Maybe’ bonus track ‘Sad Song’, and the video for that song was released last month.
The residents of Greater Manchester were encouraged to join in with the event from their homes, which aimed to “harness the power of music to connect their communities and bring them together in these challenging times.” It took place as part of Manchester International Festival’s online programme MIF LIVE.
