Liam Gallagher labels Noel a ‘sad f***’
LIAM GALLAGHER has dashed Oasis fans’ hopes of a reunion with his brother Noel after slating him for not appearing at last night’s One Love Manchester gig.
Liam was a surprise addition to the show himself, having previously been scheduled to perform at German festival Rock am Ring.
But when a terror scare caused that site to be evacuated, Liam flew back to the UK to perform Live Forever with Coldplay’s Chris Martin, dedicating the song to ‘the beautiful people who were killed and injured in the Manchester terror attack’.
But his kindly sentiments did not extend to his brother Noel.
In a series of tweets posted this morning, Liam first hailed an ‘amazing night’ before launching into the attack on his brother.
‘Oh and if anybody’s seen rkid tell him he can come out now as you were LG x,’ he wrote.
Liam then apologised on his brother’s behalf, writing: ‘Manchester id like to apologise for my brothers absence last night very disappointed stay beautiful stay safe LG x.’
But the kicker came when he revealed Noel had chosen not to interrupt a family holiday.
‘Noels out of the f***ing country weren’t we all love,’ he wrote, adding, ‘Get on a f***ing plane and play your tunes for the kids you sad f***.’
When one Twitter user jokingly wrote that a reunion was looking unlikely, Liam shot back with: ‘F*** the reunion mate it ain’t about oasis it’s about people helping other people and he’s once again shown his true f***ing colours.’
At time of going to press, Noel had not responded, but he wasn’t the only no-show at last night’s tribute concert.
Questions were also being asked about Usher’s absence, given that he had been on the original line-up.
The singer published a video to Instagram yesterday, saying: ‘My heart is with you Manchester, I’m so sorry for all your loss and all the pain you’ve been through.’
But he offered no explanation until later, when it emerged he had been attending his diabetic son’s first day at camp.
