BBC Forced To Give Warning Ahead Of Noel Gallagher Glastonbury Performance

The BBC had to give viewers a warning ahead of Noel Gallagher's performance at this year's Glastonbury.

The former Oasis star took to the Pyramid Stage as the frontman of his band the High Flying Birds tonight (25 June).

Considering the singer-songwriter is known for his sweary choice of words, it'll come as no surprise that the BBC gave a 'strong language' warning before he'd even reached the mic.

As the band walked on stage, the message popped up on the BBC's live stream stating: "This performance may contain very strong language." No s**t.

As said by one eagle-eyed fan on Twitter: "#Glastonbury Noel walks on and it’s says on my telly “MAY contain strong language” MAY??!!! go on Noel!!!"

Any Noel Gallagher fan worth their salt will know that he and his brother - who he's been in a famous feud with since the late 00s - are big lovers of the English language's various swear words.

In a previous interview, he said of his mum: "Hard work and a f**king filthy tongue, that’s what I inherited from my mum. She taught the nineties how to swear."

It's been nearly 20 years since the Manchester-born singer made his festival debut alongside his brother Liam.

Ahead of his set this year, he told The Sun: “Thank God Glastonbury is back. It sh**s all over New Year and it’s way more important than Christmas."

When asked about who he'll be seeing at the event, he joked: “After I’ve sat on Macca’s knee for a bit I’ll swing by the little Mancunian enclave up in some far-off never never land and say all right to Bez [from Happy Mondays] and the box of toys and take it from there.

“I’m very much looking forward to seeing The Punishers - top psychedelic firm from Manchester, although I think they might clash with The Pink Monkeys so I’ll have to decide which ones I’m gonna do - actually I might do both.

“Other than that, no one really. I don’t go for the music. I’ll just wander around bumping into amazing people getting into adventures and seeing wonderful things."
