Liam Gallagher took the opportunity to have a dig at brother Noel during Beady Eye's Reading Festival debut on Friday, but Twitter was far from impressed.
The former Oasis stars have been embroiled in a bitter war of words since the band’s acrimonious split in 2009, with Liam even launching a lawsuit against his brother after Noel accused him of pulling out of V Festival because he was too hungover to play.
Liam has since dropped the lawsuit but their rivalry continues, with Liam telling the audience during Beady Eye’s set that Noel was probably ‘somewhere over there playing a f**king acoustic guitar’.
Noel probably won’t be too concerned by the dig, as Beady Eye were subject to a barrage of criticism by Twitter users last night as the BBC aired highlights from their set.
One fan was pleased to see the band’s name trending, writing: ‘Beady Eye are trending! Not as good as Oasis, but still a bloody good british rock band!’
But most tweets were from users slating their appearance, with @petelemania writing: ‘Imagine being at a festival and choosing to watch Beady Eye over... anything else.’
@faamehookerr summed up the thoughts of many by simply saying: ‘Beady Eye are really bad.’
Mike Joyce, former drummer for The Smiths, added: ‘Just watched My Chemical Romance & Beady Eye ont' telly at Reading. I'm so glad I was in The Smiths.’
The band will be hoping for a better reception tonight when they perform at Reading’s sister site in Leeds.
