Liam Gallagher has a dig at Noel during Beady Eye’s Reading Festival debut

Liam and co make their first appearance at Reading since 2000

Beady Eye made their debut appearance at Reading Festival tonight (August 26) – and singer Liam Gallagher couldn’t resist having a little dig at his brother Noel during the show.

Most members of the band, including Liam, were making their first live appearance at the festival since 2000, when they headlined the festival as part of Oasis. Beady Eye topped the bill on the NME/Radio 1 Stage tonight while My Chemical Romance headlined the Main Stage, with a guest appearance from Queen guitarist Brian May.

Liam was uncharacteristically quiet throughout the set, despite joking that his brother Noel (pictured right), who has recently launched his solo career, was “somewhere over there playing a fucking acoustic guitar”.


The Beady Eye man recently filed a lawsuit against Noel after the older Gallagher accused him of being hungover at V Festival 2009, where Oasis pulled out of the Chelmsford leg after Liam claimed he was suffering from laryngitis. He has since dropped the lawsuit after Noel admitted his brother did have a doctor’s note for the illness.

Beady Eye played tracks from their debut album ‘Different Gear, Still Speeding’ at Reading and head to Leeds Festival tomorrow.
