Noel Gallagher Angry at Brother Liam , Brands Kasabian 'Weird'
Oasis lynchpin Noel Gallagher is fuming with younger brother Liam after the band’s sell-out Coventry show.
Noel admitted he was angry with Liam for telling fans at the Ricoh Arena to stop clapping along during last week’s concert.
The Gallagher brothers are almost as famous for their public bust-ups as they are for their magnificent music.
And it appears Liam’s tirade at the crowd in Coventry has added to the bad blood between the pair.
Noel’s latest post on his blog, Tales from the Middle of Nowhere, praised fans at last Tuesday night’s gig for refusing to let Liam’s outbursts ruin the show.
The Oasis guitarist and songwriter-in-chief wrote: “Bruno (Noel’s new nickname for Liam) seemed determined, and I mean DETERMINED that no one, and I mean NO ONE was gonna enjoy themselves.”
“Very strange. Y’can’t keep the kids down though.”
Singer Liam was booed by fans at the Ricoh after he told them to stop clapping along to last year’s hit single Shock of the Lightning.
He allegedly ordered them to “Get your hands down. This is Oasis, not Simple Minds.”
During an interview on Radio 1 later during the week Noel said he thought his brother’s rant had been “hilarious but quite undignified”.
“I was quite angry about it later - in the middle of ‘Shock of the Lightning’, 50,000 people have got their hands in the air and he starts shouting at them to stop clapping,” said the 42 year-old.
“I was thinking, that’s nice - you pay 70 quid for a ticket to be told what to do by the singer.”
Noel also branded Leicester band Kasabian “weird” for refusing to play in Coventry.
They had been supporting Oasis on other legs of their stadium tour but refused to play at the Ricoh, allegedly because they are big Leicester City fans.
But he had plenty of praise for city superstars The Enemy, who did support Oasis on the night, and Coventry’s state-of-the-art stadium.
“The Ricoh Arena’s mega. Very tidy,” he wrote on his blog.
“The Enemy were great. Hometown gig, and all that. They pulled it out of the hat.”
