Noel Gallagher Fires Back After Heckler Asks, ‘Where’s Liam?’
As NME points out, a concertgoer at Gallagher's gig in Cork on Tuesday (July 14) -- who's apparently very concerned with the state of the will-they-or-won’t-they Oasis reunion -- shouted, “Where’s Liam?”
Gallagher took the barb in stride, though, even bringing the rest of the audience into the conversation. “For the benefit of everybody, there’s some comedian here that’s just said, ‘Where’s Liam,’” Gallagher told the crowd, which was met with a mixture of cheers and boos. “Is he a local comedian?”
Of course, Gallagher didn’t let the moment go without taking a jab at his brother. “Liam’s at home looking at himself in the mirror,” the former Oasis guitarist quipped.
“Fortunately, he’s still not as big of a c--- as you are,” Gallgher told the heckler. “Imagine that, being a bigger c--- than our kid. Imagine that.”
After the exchange, Gallagher introduced the next song as being Oasis’ “The Importance of Being Idle” and flipped the heckler the “High Flying Bird.” Watch the entire encounter in the video at the top of the page.
Gallagher recently debuted a music video for his latest Chasing Yesterday single, “Lock All the Doors.” Last month, he also revealed he’s already working on a follow-up to his second solo effort. “I’m already a bit of the way into my next record,” he said in an interview. “As for what it will eventually say on the cover though remains to be seen.”
