‘I have to put my health first’: Liam Gallagher’s health struggles as laryngitis forces him to cut back his set while performing at the French festival… and cancels more shows
Liam Gallagher had to finish his set early on Saturday night while performing at the Bureaugard festival.
Suffering from a health scare, the singer left the stage mid-singing “without explanation” before sharing on Instagram that he has been diagnosed with laryngitis.
And declaring that “I have to put my health first”, the 49-year-old has now had to cancel his next show as he was due to perform at Blues Passions in Cognac on Sunday night.

The former Oasis star apologized to his 1.5million Instagram followers for the early departure and explained the diagnosis.
The singer wrote: “My apologies to everyone who came to Festival Bureaugard last night, I was so disappointed I had to cancel the set. I was diagnosed with laryngitis today and am on doctor’s orders to get some rest.
Admitting he “never wants to let anyone down,” Liam went on to apologize as he revealed “medical orders” mean he won’t be doing his next scheduled show.

“Unfortunately, this means I also have to cancel my upcoming show in Cognac. I don’t want to let anyone down and I truly apologize for any disappointment but I have to put my health first LG x,” Liam concluded.
Liam posted the same statement on Twitter but was criticized by some fans – who were unhappy with the way he walked off the stage.
“You could have said that to the fans instead of just walking off stage,” replied one fan.

The singer was also accused of “thrown out” his funerals by several fans as he left the stage, with one writing: “Bad way to deal with it. Stop the music and explain instead of throwing the maracas and tambourine and running away like a kid.’
But it was a mixed bag as many fans rushed to Liam’s defense and wished him a speedy recovery.
One quipped back, “How is he supposed to communicate if he didn’t know at the time,” while another said, “Don’t apologize Bigman, your health always comes first”.

He’s been busy lately touring a number of festivals across Europe and putting on a high-energy performance at Italy’s Lucca Summer Festival just days before his diagnosis.
While he also put on a stunning performance last month, Knebworth returned over 20 years after Oasis played their biggest ever gigs at the venue.
And hoping he’s on the mend, the rocker will arrive in Finland on the 15th before heading to New Zealand and Australia just days later.
