Oasis legend Liam Gallagher will be honoured with MTV's Rock Icon award next month at the 2019 Europe Music Awards.
During the show on November 3, which is being broadcast live from Seville, Spain, Liam, 47, will perform a hit Oasis track as well as a new track from his latest solo album Why Me? Why Not.
"There's no question that Liam Gallagher is one of the world's most successful, influential and colourful rock artists of our time," Bruce Gillmer, global head of music and talent at MTV International explained.
Gillmer added: "The rich musical history that we have with Liam, both with his former band, Oasis and as a solo artist, has inspired us to create the first-ever Rock Icon award.
