Joining legions of anonymous Internet commentators and virtual message boards hecklers, Noel Gallagher is now taking a stab at choice headlining acts set for these yearís festival circuits. His main gripe? The announcement of Jay-Z for Englandís Glastonbury Festival where he says hip-hop does not belong.
He told the BBC that the festival is centered ďon a tradition of guitar music" which H.O.V.A. fails to fill, even though he did do that one album with Linkin Park. Gallagher blames poor ticket sales on promoters poor taste in headliners, which have previously included The Killers, R.E.M and Coldplay ďIf it ain't broke, don't fix it,Ē the infamous egomaniac told the paper adding, "I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong."
You arenít having hip-hop? So then why arenít Oasis clamoring at a chance to play the fest? Wouldnít that be a headliner to sell out tickets for the ages? We all know youíve done it there twice before. What would also help is if you guys could add on to the whole seven tour dates you have lined up so far. Canada is cool and all, but itíd help if you acknowledged us yanks as well.
