Liam Gallagher was forced to end his set early on Saturday night while performing at the Bureaugard Festival.
Suffering a health scare, the singer left the stage ‘without explanation’ mid-song, before sharing on Instagram that he had been diagnosed with laryngitis.

Health scare: Liam Gallagher, 49, suffered a health scare on Saturday after he was forced to cut short his set while performing at the French festival due to laryngitis.
Posting to his 1.5 million Instagram followers, the former Oasis star apologized for the untimely departure while explaining the diagnosis.
The singer wrote: ‘My apologies to everyone who came out to Festival Bureau last night, I was so disappointed I had to cut the set short. Today I was diagnosed with laryngitis and I am on doctors’ orders to rest a little.
Admitting that he “never wants to let anyone down”, Liam further apologized after revealing that “doctor’s orders” mean he won’t be doing his next scheduled show.
Cancellation: Following the diagnosis, he now has to cancel his next show, having been due to appear at Blues Passions in Cognac on Sunday night.

Unfortunately, this means I also have to cancel my next show at Cognac. I never want to let anyone down, I’m really sorry for any disappointment, but I have to put my health first LG x,” Liam concluded.
Liam tweeted the same statement, but was met with some backlash from fans – who were unhappy with the way he left the stage.
“You could have communicated that to the fans instead of just walking off the stage,” one fan responded.

The singer was also accused of ‘dumping’ his funeral as he left the stage by many fans, with one writing: ‘Bad way to treat him. Stop the music and explain, instead of grabbing maracas and tambourines and running away like children.’
But it was a mixed bag, as many fans jumped to Liam’s defence, wishing him a speedy recovery.
One quipped: ‘How was he supposed to communicate if he didn’t know at the time’ while another said: ‘Don’t apologize big man, your health always comes first.’

He has been busy as of late touring a number of festivals across Europe, putting on an energetic performance at Italy’s Lucca Summer Festival just days before his diagnosis.
While he also took on a spectacular Knebworth performance last month, returning over 20 years after Oasis played their biggest ever gigs at the venue.
And hoping he’s on the mend, the rocker will hit Finland on the 15th before heading to New Zealand and Australia just days later.
