Liam Gallagher is giving up alcohol for a month to prepare for two massive shows.

The former Oasis singer has been open about his wild partying ways but ahead of his two huge solo shows at Knebworth House in Herfordshire on 3 and 4 June, he’s determined to ‘stay out of trouble’ and be in the best shape possible for the gigs.

He said: ‘I’ve got a month to prepare for Knebworth so I’m going to stay out of trouble, stay in the house, chill out, eat well, do some exercise, and not drink alcohol or do any of that nonsense.

‘As you get older you’ve got to prepare right for these gigs. You can’t be going there like you’re 20 otherwise it’ll sound s**t and people pay a lot of money, so I’ve got to prepare right.’

But the 49-year-old singer reassured fans he isn’t changing his lifestyle for good and will have ‘plenty of time’ to celebrate once the gigs are over with.

He added to The Sun’s Bizarre column: ‘There’s plenty of time to get p***ed and get high, do that later on.’

Liam ‘can’t wait’ for the two headline shows and thinks it is ‘amazing’ he can still attract such huge crowds so far into his career.

He said: ‘It’s amazing that I’m still doing that stuff at 50 and that people still want to come and see me.

‘It’s going to be different, it’s going to be amazing, it’s going to be biblical, the weather is going to be amazing. Obviously it’s not Oasis but I’ll be playing Oasis songs, we’re going to come at it from a different angle and I can’t wait, man.

‘If people want it, then they’re going to get it, it’s as simple as that. People bought the tickets so you’ve got to do the gigs. I can’t wait, it’s going to be mega.’

Meanwhile, Liam is set to drop his third solo album C’Mon You Know this month, and he recently insisted doesn’t care about getting radio play.

‘I’m Liam Gallagher. Why do I worry? That’s what I want to do. I don’t want to be a pop star. The thought of that makes me want to jump off a f***ing roof! I’m not a*sed if it gets on the radio,’ he told Mojo.

‘Sometimes these mixes take all the rawness out. Does it have to be mixed? “Well, yeah, that’s how music works, especially if you want it on the radio…” Get the levels right, but don’t smother it.’
