Noel Gallagher on Kanye West at Glastonbury: ‘For half an hour, it was as fucking good as it gets’

Gallagher admits that he lost interest in Pyramid Stage slot after 45 minutes

Noel Gallagher has described Kanye West’s Glastonbury headline set as “as good as it gets” but admitted that he lost interest after half an hour.

Speaking to NME, Gallagher said that he was initially impressed with what he saw of the headline set when catching up with the highlights online. “I thought for half an hour it was fucking outrageous. It looked amazing on my iPad, I have to say,” he said.

“For 30 minutes I thought, ‘Wow, this is truly fucking amazing’. Then, like most hip-hop gigs, after 45 minutes you’re going, ‘I want something else now’. But for half an hour it was as good as it gets.”

Elsewhere in the video interview Gallagher discusses Florence + The Machine’s Glastonbury performance (“She should have been headlining in the first place”) and positions himself as a possible headliner for next year’s festival. “I’m fucking full on, flat out busy,” he says before adding: “I’m always free for Glastonbury weekend, if anybody is watching.”
