The performance comes after the Foo Fighters made a plea for Liam and Noel Gallagher to stop bickering and to get back together at Reading, Leeds’ sister festival. The Gallagher brothers’ degenerating relationship in Oasis ended with Noel stating his departure in August 2009, following yet another backstage altercation with Liam. The rest of the group, led by Liam, continued as Beady Eye until they broke up 2014. The Gallagher brothers have intermittently squashed their beef, though the goodwill rarely lasts long.
Twenty One Pilots had already covered the song on Saturday during their Reading set. Malone, perpetually enthusiastic about pandering to fans with easy pop, linked up with lead singer Tyler Joseph for an unusually sensitive rendition. Getting people to sing along to Oasis tracks, almost anywhere in the world, is an effortless play. Posty, however, manages to make it feel somewhat authentic.
There’s been no word on Liam and Noel Gallagher’s inevitable and impending reaction.
