Liam Gallagher slams Noel Gallagher’s tour plans with Snow Patrol

Beady Eye man mocks 'Snore Patrol' and 'High Flying Smurfs' on Twitter

Liam Gallagher has mocked his brother Noel for agreeing to tour the US with Snow Patrol.

The Beady Eye singer took to Twitter to pour scorn upon his former bandmate, who will team up with the Northern Irish rockers for a join headline tour across the US and Canada in October and November, by sarcastically implying that their live shows would be boring.

The singer wrote:

Earlier today (July 20), it was reported that Liam will perform a rendition of Oasis’ classic ‘Wonderwall’ at the Olympics Games’ closing ceremony. Sources claimed that the chance to sing the track was originally offered to Noel, but the guitarist turned the offer down as “he has been on a great tour and he doesn’t really need to do it”.

Both Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Snow Patrol are currently immersed in a hectic summer of festival appearances and are both due to play second headline at next month’s V Festival.

Snow Patrol are currently touring in support of their sixth album ‘Fallen Empires, while Gallagher is still supporting his solo debut LP ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’.
