Ed Sheeran has responded to Noel Gallagher’s remarks that he couldn’t live in a world where Ed Sheeran headlines Wembley, stating “I can live in it, it’s really enjoyable”.
Sheeran tweeted his comeback after Gallagher expressed his dismay at the fact that Sheeran will play three gigs at Wembley Stadium to NME. In the cover feature of this week’s issue, which is on newsstands from tomorrow and available digitally, the former Oasis man said: “I don’t think I can live in a world where that’s even possible. When you hear that kind of polished pop and then there’s a ginger guy with a fucking guitar it seems subversive, but it’s fucking not.”
As confirmed last year, Sheeran will play a trio of dates at the 80,000 capacity London stadium in July. Two of the dates were added due to phenomenal demand.
Earlier today, Ed Sheeran was announced as one of the performers at this year’s 57th Grammy Awards. The singer-songwriter is nominated for three awards at this year’s ceremony, including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for his second studio album ‘X’, which was released last year.
Noel Gallagher revealed his new single ‘Ballad Of The Mighty I’ earlier this week and reiterated his desire to play Glastonbury in June, suggesting that he might take his guitar and play regardless of whether he is officially booked for the festival or not.
Gallagher’s upcoming record ‘Chasing Yesterday’ will be his second solo studio album and features his new single ‘In The Heat Of The Moment’. Johnny Marr features on the track ‘The Ballad Of Mighty I’.
