In other news, the Scottish artist responded to praise from Noel Gallagher’‘s daughter following his hilarious Glastonbury set on Saturday (June 29), during which he poked fun at the former Oasis guitarist.
Capaldi shared a clip of Gallagher’s comments on the big screens of the Other Stage at Glastonbury, moments before coming out to perform. Donning an Oasis-style Parka, he took it off to reveal a t-shirt featuring an image of Gallagher’s face inside a love heart.
NME spoke to Capaldi after his performance in which he addressed the circumstances surrounding his grand Glastonbury entrance.
“When I found out that [Noel Gallagher] slagged me off…I swear to the lord, I was buzzing!” he said in the video interview.
