Liam Gallagher breaks silence on Oasis’ V Festival cancellation

Silent singer users Twitter to apologise to fans

Liam Gallagher has broken his silence after Oasis were ruled out of V Festival yesterday (August 23).

Having played the Staffordshire leg of the event, the band pulled out of Chelmsford after Liam Gallagher caught viral laryngitis.

Using Twitter, the singer apologised to fans and bemoaned his inability to sing.


“The voice may of disappeared but I’m still here,” he wrote. “First things first V I’m gutted, you’re gutted. I’m sorry, what can I say? Fuck all at the moment.”

He added: “Secondly, respect to those bands who covered Oasis last night, even though I might of given some of you shit in the past.”

Snow Patrol, Keane and MGMT all played Oasis covers at the Chelmsford leg of V Festival last night (August 23).

Gallagher also dismissed tabloid speculation that the band were set to break-up.

“Finally reports in smartarses’ column about Oasis last British gig ever,” he concluded. “The kid’s talking out his arse, I mean Rkids, beware of darkness.”
