The former Oasis frontman has revealed that the UK rapper will no longer open for him on the UK leg of his tour, but he still loves him.

Slowthai has pulled out of supporting Liam Gallagher on his 2019 tour.

The grime rapper was due to open for the former Oasis frontman on the UK leg of his dates this year, but will no longer be taking up the coveted slot.

Taking to Twitter, Gallagher revealed: "Listen up all you boppers out there in the big city all you street people with an ear for the action slowthai has pulled out of the UK Tour Gutted I still love ya homeboy good luck in the USA LG x"

It seems that slowthai - whose real name is Tyron Kaymone Frampton - has chosen to pull out from the tour due to the fact he's now embarking on US tour dates the month before.

Gallagher fans have already begun suggesting Richard Ashcroft or Aussie trio DMA's could stand in, since The Verve legend is already opening for Liam on his Irish dates and Liam is a big fan of the Delete band.

The Northampton grime star previously had a message for naysayers, who didn't want to see him support the Manchester legend.

"I'm ready to just get on it," he told Sky News about the gig.

"We're going to hit it. I'm going to show all these people who want to hear Bittersweet Symphony who I am," he laughed. "They're going to know who I am."

Slowthai may not be supporting the Wall Of Glass singer any more, but he has been recognised with a Mercury nod this year.

The rapper is up for the prestigious award for his Nothing Great About Britain album, alongside the likes of Foals who have been nominated for Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1 and The 1975 who have received a nod for A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships.
