Noel Gallagher exchanged words with a heckler at his recent show in Cork earlier this week.
The former Oasis guitarist performed at the Marquee venue in the Irish city on Tuesday (July 14), where he was interrupted by a fan who called out “Where’s Liam?”, a reference to Gallagher’s brother and former bandmate Liam.
With the incident caught on camera (see footage below), Gallagher replied to the heckler: “For the benefit of everybody, there’s some comedian here that’s just said, ‘Where’s Liam?’ Is he a local comedian?”
He continued: “Liam’s at home looking at himself in the mirror.”
Gallagher then turned his sights onto the heckler himself, adding: “Fortunately, he’s still not as big of a cunt as you are. Imagine that, being a bigger cunt than our kid. Imagine that.”
Noel Gallagher recently claimed that there’s a “one per cent” chance of an Oasis reunion.
Speaking to Italy’s Radio Citta Futura, Gallagher was quizzed on a future Oasis reunion, replying: “Oh one, there’s a one per cent chance it might happen, but I don’t think so.”
He continued: “There would have to be extraordinary circumstances, ‘cos I wouldn’t do it artistically, I don’t need the money, I don’t need the record sales. I can’t think of a reason that I would look to do that. What would be the point? I don’t know. I don’t see what the point would be.”
The singer also announced that he’s to start work on his next High Flying Birds record shortly.
“I’ll enter the studio for my new album in about five weeks,” Gallagher said. “I’ll do some work on it before the end of the year. I’m hoping to get it finished by the end of the year.”
Expanding on what fans can expect from the record, Noel added: “From what I’ve done at the moment, sonically it sounds different, but it will still be very melodic and all that.
“It’s a new way of working for me, and I’m finding it very difficult, or very slow. So it’s like writing and recording as you go along, so there’s no sitting down writing all the songs and then going to record them, you’re kind of doing that in the studio, so that takes a lot longer, but the results at the moment are quite good.”
