Noel and Liam Gallagher

Noel and Liam Gallagher

Noel and Liam Gallagher are among the names to be honoured on the Manchester Walk of Fame.

The famous feuding brothers and former Oasis bandmates make up two of the 20 names to be given a star on the temporary walk that is being installed to mark the launch of The Liquor Store - a new bar on First Street.

The bar is situated opposite the building which used to be home to the famous Hacienda nightclub, and co-owner Doug Waldron said it "seemed fitting" to open the bar by celebrating some of the city's "most prolific stars".

He said: "Manchester is at the heart of everything we do at the Liquor Store and with First Street being an artistic breeding ground, located opposite the famous Hacienda building, it seemed fitting to open our new bar by celebrating some of the city's most prolific stars."

The 20 stars were compiled out of a poll held by the owners of the bar, with the most voted for names receiving a temporary star.

Alongside the 'Wonderwall' hitmakers, former Smiths frontman Morrissey, late Factory Records boss' Tony Wilson, and Stone Roses rocker Ian Brown have also secured themselves a place on the Walk of Fame.

Late actress Caroline Aherne, Paralympian Dame Sarah Storey, and Professor Brian Cox also made the cut.

The walk is only a temporary feature, and the stars will be removed from the street on Monday October 10.

The Liquor Store opens on October 8, and claims to offer a "vintage Los Angeles vibe with strong Mancunian influence".
