Ed Sheeran offers Noel Gallagher tickets to Wembley gigs

Gallagher previously said he 'can't live' with fact Sheeran will headline three gigs at London stadium

Ed Sheeran has extended the offer of free tickets to see him play Wembley Stadium following former Oasis man Noel Gallagher’s comments about his upcoming dates at the London venue.

Speaking to NME earlier this year, Gallagher remarked that he couldn’t live in a world where Ed Sheeran headlines Wembley. Sheeran promptly retorted, “I can live in it, it’s really enjoyable”.

He has now elaborated on Gallagher’s opinion, saying that he was able to get in contact with Gallagher and made it clear he was welcome to attend any of the London gigs this July.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Sheeran said: “I read what he said, I texted him because I have his number and asked him if he’d like some tickets. He wrote back, ‘You cheeky so and so. My daughter would love some’. He’s always going to be the guy who’s outspoken. I wasn’t offended. I found it quite cool to be in his interview.”

Sheeran even went as far as to say that the occasional insult helps keep his ego in check. “I get a lot of stick from press and people, but it’s good to get stick. That’s why Americans go off the rails. Ego-wise you are risen and risen and risen. Your ego grows. If you speak to anyone from Adele to Chris Martin, they would say they are grounded ‘cos they get a hiding from the press.”
