Beady Eye

Beady Eye guitarist Gem Archer says he will be back on stage for the band's tour in November, three months after the band was forced to cancel shows.

The group, led by Liam Gallagher, had to pull out of a series of gigs after the musician fell down a flight of stairs in August and fractured his skull.

But Archer, who also broke his leg whilst recovering from the injury, sent a message to fans to say he hoped to rejoin the band for forthcoming shows next month.

Thanking them for their support he said: "I am on the mend, not gone round the bend and treading carefully whilst taking each day as a giant leap forward.

I am on the mend, not gone round the bend and treading carefully whilst taking each day as a giant leap forward. That was then and as of now. I can't wait to stand with a guitar in my hand alongside the rest of the boys, on a stage in front of some of you from November onwards.

"I still consider myself lucky, who knows why things happen, but they do and it all could have been much worse but it wasn't".

The 46-year-old also says: "I can't wait to stand with a guitar in my hand alongside the rest of the boys, on a stage in front of some of you from November onwards."

Beady Eye - formed by the remaining members of Oasis, following the departure of Noel Gallagher - are due to play shows in Dublin on 7 and 8 November.

Their UK dates begin at Glasgow's Barrowland on 10 November.

The guitarist adds: "'You can't change the wind, but you can change how you walk into it', as an old friend said to me once.

Here's to next time and knowing a little more of how to do the walk."
