'There were tears streaming down his face'

Travis frontman Fran Healy has recalled an instance in which he once made Liam Gallagher cry.

The band were performing at London’s Royal Festival Hall last night, when the singer opened up about how their track ‘Luv once brought the former Oasis frontman to tears while they were on the road in the ’90s.

“We supported Oasis on the ‘Be Here Now’ Tour in 1997, and it was like supporting The Rolling Stones they were so big back then,” Healy told the crowd, introducing their track ‘Luv’. “I was walking backstage and Liam Gallagher was sat there in his round shades and he goes, ‘You come here’. So I went over and he goes, ‘Play me a song’.”

Healy continued: “I was really nervous and I just picked up my guitar and started playing this next song. I couldn’t even look at him I was so nervous. When I finished playing the song I looked up and there were tears streaming down his face.”

Travis are currently playing their 1999 album ‘The Man Who’ in full on a run of UK dates.

“I definitely think Coldplay [were inspired by us] when they first came out, but that was more to do with them being ‘business’,” Healy told NME about Travis’ influence when they first struck fame. “They saw we were the biggest band going around so ate that, took a little bit of that and took a little bit of them. They’ve done that throughout. They’re a bit of Arcade Fire, bit of U2, and now I think recently with the pop music that’s going around, they’ve got Stargate and that sort of thing. I can write a great melody, lets just make this. Lets press it like this because this is what people are listening to right now.

“They did it with us a different way. A few other bands too, but I don’t really know.”Travis
