Reformed rock wildman Liam Gallagher showed his recent claims to have mellowed with age were a little premature when the monkey-walking Britpopper gave a stunning performance at Oasis' third Hong Kong gig last night. Gallagher, who told the Post his days of partying were behind him, held a near-capacity crowd in the palm of his hand as he stalked the stage with his trademark arrogant swagger while belting out almost two hours of incendiary hits. From the sublime opener Rock 'n' Roll Star, a paean to the rock star excesses the band once epitomised, to the closing suite that included their psychedelic magnum opus Champagne Supernova, Britain's biggest band made up for their lacklustre shows here in 1997 and 2004. While guitarist brother Noel spent most of the gig blasting killer riffs and occasionally taking lead vocals, Liam gave a tremendous display of why he is considered the best frontman of the past decade, oozing stage presence and with his voice in top form. He even dedicated the band's Britpop-era signature tune (What's The Story) Morning Glory to fellow Mancunian rockers The Stone Roses. If you could make one criticism of him, it was that the long green parka and fishing hat he sported throughout the show made him look like a flasher about to reveal himself. Not that the audience would have complained: more than 12,000 fans hung on his every syllable, sang along to practically every song and didn't stop hopping, right up to the feedback-soaked finale of the Beatles' classic, I Am the Walrus. They didn't relent even for the less well-known numbers from latest album Dig Out Your Soul, which included chart-topper The Shock of the Lightning and rhythm guitarist Gem Archer's To Be Where There is Life.
