Beady Eye replacing Blur @ Big Day Out

Beady Eye first time in Australia and New Zealand. Big Day Out organisers have made good on their promise and an intriguing Britpop subplot has emerged, replacing British headliner Blur with three new acts including Liam Gallagher's new band Beady Eye.
Many fans joked that the festival bosses should try to get Oasis to reform after Blur suddenly quit the festival (did they learn from Noel Gallagher...)
Popular American alternative metallers Deftones and theatrical Swedish garage band The Hives join the line-up, but the biggest new name is Beady Eye.
new Big Day Out co-promoter AJ Maddah has signed Beady Eye for their first Australian shows in January.
Blur and Oasis played out an at times fractious battle in the media for supremacy of the Britpop movement over 20 years, with Oasis compared to the Rolling Stones and Blur to The Beatles.
One can imagine Liam Gallagher, one of rock's great loudmouths, taunting Blur's frontman Damon Albarn that he will finish what Blur couldn't — electrify the fans at the 2014 Big Day Out.
Pearl Jam and Canadian indie band Arcade Fire will also play at the festival.

17 January - Auckland, New Zealand
19 January - Carrara
24 January - Flemington
26 January - Sydney
31 January - Adelaide
