Earlier today infamous straight talker, Liam Gallagher, called out his brother Noel for not turning up for yesterday’s One Love concert in Manchester.

As I’m sure you’re all aware – the gig was in tribute to the 22 victims of the Manchester Arena attack which took place two weeks ago today.

Speculation was rife of an Oasis reunion. It had been alluded to in tweets – both intentional and accidental. All the signs were heading that way. But it never was.

Liam referred to Noel as a ‘sad fuck’ for not playing the gig, but it has been revealed why he wasn’t there, according to NME.

When a spokesperson for the former Oasis lead guitarist was asked to give reasons for Noel’s no show, he pointed to a statement which claimed he was out of the country.

The statement reads:

Sadly, Noel will not be at the concert this weekend. He’s been out of the country on a longstanding family trip since before the concert was announced and is unable to attend.

Needless to say he is very supportive of the event and wishes everyone huge success on the day.
