Liam Gallagher not going to Peter Kay's tour after comedian destroyed him at Brit Awards
| Last updated
Liam Gallagher won’t be amongst those attempting to get their hands on a Peter Kay ticket tomorrow morning because he reckons he’s a ‘balloon knot’. You can see why he’s not the biggest fan of the stand-up here:
On Sunday evening, Kay announced his first UK tour in 12-years - which promptly caused his website to crash.
This was followed by chaos yesterday when pre-sale tickets went up for grabs, with O2 saying it was experiencing ‘unprecedented demand’ and users complaining they couldn’t access the app or website to buy tickets.
In a statement, O2 said: “We’re seeing unprecedented demand for Peter Kay tickets & we know a lot of you can’t access Priority. Sorry, we’re working on it. Please be patient; this is by far the highest demand we’ve ever seen for Priority Tickets in 15 years.”
However, Gallagher will not be amongst those rushing to nab themselves a ticket when they go on general sale tomorrow at 10am, with the singer having previously had a bit of a run-in with Kay years prior.
When asked by a fan if he’d be going to a show, Gallagher replied: “F**k him the balloon knot.”
In response to the vitriol, some fans speculated that Gallagher might still be smarting over an incident at the Brit Awards back in 2010 - and it seems they could be right.
For those who don't remember, Gallagher appeared on stage to collect Oasis’s award for the Best British album of the past 30 years for (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?
But, in typical Liam Gallagher fashion, he swore, lobbed a microphone and then handed his award to the audience.
Host Kay did not appear to be impressed by Gallagher’s display and remarked: “What a knobhead,” as he walked off the stage.
Replying to a comment about the ‘beef’ on Twitter, Gallagher wrote: “He started crying coz I threw a microphone in the crowd like big tart then slagged me when I’m in my car anyways regardless of all that he’s not even funny.”
Kay’s Better Late Than Never UK arena tour will see him kicking off in Manchester next month, before he heads to numerous cities including Birmingham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Belfast, Glasgow, Leeds and Cardiff. He's also announced a monthly residency at London's O2.
And as if demand wasn't high enough, Kay is setting his prices low for the tour - as low as the last time he toured, in fact.
Announcing his ticket price, Kay had written: “With the cost of living at an all-time high, ticket prices are starting from £35 – the same price they were on my previous tour in 2010.”
