During the show Jay-Z rapped: “That bloke from Oasis said I couldn’t play guitar/Somebody should have told him I’m a fuckin’ rock star”.


He then reprised a line from Oasis‘ 1995 hit ‘Wonderwall’, rapping, “Today is gonna be the day that I’m gonna throw it back to you”.

A public spat has blown up between the pair since Noel Gallagher said Jay-Z was “wrong” for Glastonbury earlier this year. Jay-Z then opened his headline slot on June 28 this year with a cover of ‘Wonderwall’.

However speaking in this week’s issue of NME, out now, Gallagher played down any feud.

“I wasn’t saying I was better than Jay-Z as a person or rock was greater than hip-hop,” he said in his best John Lennon impression, referencing The Beatles‘ “bigger than God incident”. “I said what I said, and it was wrong, or it was taken wrong, and now all this [media furore].”

Gallagher also claimed that Jay-Z liked ‘Wonderwall’, despite his mock version, and claimed ‘Wonderwall’ is always the last song of the night at the star’s restaurant in New York. Gallagher added: “I’ll have a beer with him one day and it will be fine.”
