Champagne Super-Over: Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher is left furious as his Melbourne concert is abruptly cut short mid-song due to a ‘noise curfew’

English singer Liam Gallagher’s Melbourne concert was abruptly cut short mid-performance on Wednesday night. 

The former Oasis frontman was singing the band’s popular hit Supersonic when the sound curfew kicked in at Margaret Court Arena.

Forced to end the concert without finishing the ballad, Liam slammed the venue on Twitter: ‘Well that was a load of w**k getting cut off last song we weren’t that bad I’ve heard worse!’

Liam’s Melbourne gig marked the third concert in his 2019 Australian tour circuit, following the release of his new solo album, Why Me, Why Not? 

The rock star was clearly disappointed when the venue’s PA system was switched off promptly at 11pm during the classic song.

Fans singing along in the crowd were left in the dark during the last act – figuratively and literally.
