Liam Gallagher is playing festivals this summer to attract new fans to Beady Eye.

The band are playing several festival dates – including slots at Reading and Leeds and the Isle of Wight Festival – and the ‘Four Letter Word’ singer is keen to showcase his new music to people who might not necessarily be interested.

He said: “This is the name of the game, to f***ing get new fans. I mean, obviously all the Oasis fans jumped on board and got involved and all that and liked it. But the music is there for anyone. Beady Eye is for anyone.”

Liam – who formed his new group with the remaining members of Oasis after his brother Noel Gallagher quit in August 2009 – insists he is hungry to prove himself again to wide range of music fans.

He added to NME magazine: “Hopefully, there’s going to be people out there that are getting a little bit more from Beady Eye than what they did from Oasis. There’s not a day that goes by when you don’t want to get up and f***ing mean something to people.”
