Liam Gallagher made his first on stage appearance since announcing the breakup of his band Beady Eye.

The Who tribute concert was for charity, to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The singer sang at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London last night, performing the classic Who tune ‘My Generation’.

Liam was accompanied by an all star cast of musicians on the night that included,  Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Kaiser Chiefs’ Ricky Wilson and Geddy Lee of Rush, who flew in from Canada especially for the charity show.

The Who’s Roger Daltrey kicked off the evening by explaining that Pete Townshend was not in attendance because  he was “at home looking after the dogs. I think he’d rather do anything than hear his songs played back to him! He doesn’t like playing them himself!”

Despite claiming that he wouldn’t perform at the Who tribute, Daltrey stepped in to sing ‘Substitute’ after James Dean Bradfield fell ill.

Vedder sang ‘Naked Eye’, ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’, and lead an encore of ‘Listening To You.’ Other artists that took the stage were  English singer-songwriter Tom Odell, Scottish singer Amy Macdonald and Razorlight’s drummer Andy Burrows.

‘The Kids Are Alright’ was performed by Wilko Johnson and The Strypes, while Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott sang ‘Love Reign O’er Me’.

Ricky Wilson was joined by Phil Daniels, the star of the 1979 film ‘Quadrophenia’ for ‘Bell Boy’, which was originally released in 1973.
