In an extremely emotional moment at Glastonbury 2019, Liam Gallagher dedicated a piano-led rendition of ‘Champagne Supernova’ to the late Keith Flint.
Performing on the Pyramid Stage late on Saturday evening, Gallagher performed a rousing set which combined his recent solo material with an extensive back catalogue of Oasis hits.
After dedication songs to both Emily Eavis and Ken Dodd earlier in his set, Gallagher opted to save his final song of the evening to remember The Prodigy frontman Keith Flint who died earlier this year.
“Right you’ve been amazing,” Gallagher told the Glastonbury crowd. “This is the last song, I want to dedicate it to the one and only Keith Flint. ‘Champagne Supernova’. Look after yourselves, have a good night.”
Flint, who was due to perform at Glastonbury with Prodigy this year, was confirmed as dead at the age of 49 after being found at his Essex home. An inquest, which has been looking into Flint’s tragic death, initially confirmed his suicide and declared his passing as “not suspicious”.
Furthermore, a post-mortem declared the cause of death to be hanging. Following the post-mortem, a toxicology report was conducted which showed that cocaine, alcohol and codeine was found in his system at the time of death.
Remembering him at Glastonbury, Gallagher paid tribute in the best we he knows how to. Highlights and setlist, below.
