Liam Gallagher has declared that Glastonbury is "back in the good books" following Beady Eye's secret set at this year's festival (June 28).

Earlier this year the frontman vowed to never play the festival again, having performed at Worthy Farm three times with his old band Oasis and headlining twice in 1995 and 2004, after describing it as a "nightmare". He also previously said the sound at the event was "shit and really quiet" and compared it to "Bond Street with mud, with loads of celebrities walking around in their boots and umbrellas. I'm not having it."

Speaking to the BBC, however, after Beady Eye's set on the Other Stage at 11am yesterday, he said: "Glastonbury's back in the good books. I just had a bad experience but now it's cool again. It's always been cool, it's just me. I'm full of it."

He also admitted that the band's early timeslot could have been problematic, adding: "I thought 11 o'clock could be really ropey but I thought we done well, man." During the show itself, meanwhile, Gallagher had told the crowd: "Tonight, I'm a rock 'n' roll star – at 11.30 in the fucking morning!" as a way of introducing Oasis' classic track 'Rock 'N' Roll Star', which he dedicated to his sons Lennon and Gene. Beady Eye also included the Oasis song 'Morning Glory' in their setlist, although their performance drew heavily upon material from their recently released second album 'BE'.

Beady Eye played:

'Flick Of The Finger'
'Four Letter Word'
'Soul Love'
'Second Bite Of The Apple'
'Iz Rite'
'Shine A Light'
'Rock 'N' Roll Star'
'I'm Just Saying'
'Morning Glory'
'The Roller'
'Bring The Light'

Glastonbury is set to continue today with The Rolling Stones' highly-anticipated headline slot, while other acts set to appear include Primal Scream, Two Door Cinema Club and Johnny Marr. Last night saw Arctic Monkeys headline the opening night of this year's festival.
