He reportedly opened the Chicago festival set with Oasis hits "Rock 'n' Roll Star" and "Morning Glory," then delivered his recent solo single "Wall of Glass." But midway through fellow As You Were cut "Greedy Soul," Gallagher abruptly left the stage and didn't return.
His band finished playing the song and then exited the stage, as well.

Gallagher later apologized on Twitter, explaining that he'd had a "difficult gig" the night before that "fucked my voice."
Sorry to the people who turned up for the gig in Chicago lollapalooza had a difficult gig last night which fucked my voice. I'm gutted LG x— Liam Gallagher (@liamgallagher) August 3, 2017
Prior to the singer's apology, one fan jokingly took credit for the storm-off; she was holding a giant sign that read: "I <3 U NOEL."

And here we were thinking that he'd just gone off in pursuit of a squirrel.
Gallagher's set wasn't even the biggest disaster of the day, though. Severe weather caused a number of evening sets to get called off, including Lorde's.
they've told us we can't play. i had the most spectacular show planned for you and i PROMISE i will come back to play it as soon as i can 💔— Lorde (@lorde) August 4, 2017
this is the most MELODRAMA shit ever— Lorde (@lorde) August 4, 2017
The Lolla action is expected to resume today. You can tune in to a livestream of the festival all weekend over here.
Gallagher will return to Chicago this fall as part of a North American tour in support of his debut solo LP. As You Were is due out October 6 via Warner Bros.
