Noel Gallagher dedicated 'Wonderwall' to "Stratford's finest Oasis tribute band" at a War Child benefit gig in London tonight (August 14).

Noel made the jibe in reference to his brother Liam's appearance at the Olympic Games closing ceremony on Sunday night, which saw the younger Gallagher performing 'Wonderwall' with his band Beady Eye.

The High Flying Birds frontman played an intimate acoustic set at Dingwalls in Camden as part of Xfm's Legend Series in aid of War Child, airing a number of Oasis tracks including 'Wonderwall', 'Supersonic' and 'Don't Look Back In Anger'.

Noel also performed the song 'Angel Child', the B-side to 1997's 'D'You Know What I Mean' for the first time live, telling the crowd: "I've not heard this since I recorded it."

He also dedicated 'Supersonic' to British Olympic champion, the "great Mo Farah".

Noel Gallagher played:

'(It's Good) To Be Free'
'Talk Tonight'
'If I Had A Gun'
'Supersonic'
'Wonderwall'
'Whatever'
'AKA... What A Life!'
'D'Yer Wanna Be a Spaceman?'
'Half The World Away'
'Angel Child'
'Don't Look Back In Anger'
