Noel Gallagher nowadays prefers a more sedate tipple – Evian water. Backstage at Hardwick Festival in County Durham, onlookers told me how the Oasis and High Flying Birds star asked for the venue’s standard bottled water to be replaced with the posh French brand via The Sun.
A source said:
“Noel knows good wine and beer – and he clearly has his favourites when it comes to the water he would drink.
“He had the normal bottles of water which were put in his dressing room exchanged for chilled bottles of Evian because it’s the brand he likes best.”
“Pinch as many Kaiser Chiefs as you like, get The Pigeon Detectives. Don’t nick any Oasis.
“I need to keep the Evian water topped up in my swimming pool.”
At this rate, Noel, they’ll be sponsoring your next tour.
RAYE brought the crowds at All Points East to tears with a moving speech before singing her song Ice Cream Man – a track she wrote about her experience of sexual assault.
Her moving performance was a highlight of the weekend, with The Strokes also blowing me away on Friday.
But a special mention must go to dance duo Jungle, whose debut headline festival set sounded phenomenal on Saturday night.
