Fearne Cotton and ‘legendary Oasis’ booed by Bloc Party at iTunes Live gig

Plus Kele Okereke reveals his band will be taking a live break

Bloc Party instigated a chorus of boos for Oasis and TV presenter Fearne Cotton during their set at the iTunes Live festival in London‘s Roundhouse last night (July 21).

The London-based outfit, who have been criticised by the Manchester band in the past, took aim at Oasis, who are set to follow them at the same venue tonight (22).

Frontman Kele Okereke triggered the booing after joking about Fearne Cotton, who had been doing TV links earlier in the gig, but had been heckled herself for mentioning the Gallagher‘s band.

“What was it that Fearne Cotton said?” Okereke mockingly asked the crowd. “Are we ‘looking forward to the legendary Oasis?'”

Rivalry aside, Bloc Party announced that the show, which saw the band play the likes of ‘Halo’, ‘Banquet’, ‘Mercury’ – which saw the singer diving into the crowd – and ‘The Prayer’, would be the band’s last live outing in the UK capital for a while.

“We’re probably not going to see you for a very long time so goodbye London,” the singer told the audience as bassist Gordan Moakes dedicated the show to his one-year old daughter.

Bloc Party played:

‘Hunting For Witches’
‘Positive Tension’
‘Waiting For The 7.18’
‘Song For Clay (Disappear Here)’
‘Blue Light’
‘One More Chance’
‘This Modern Love’
‘The Prayer’
‘Ion Square’
‘Like Eating Glass’

Stay tuned for more from iTunes Live tonight (July 21) as Oasis themselves take to the stage.
