The Mercury-nominated grime star shared his excitement about supporting the former Oasis frontman, and sent a message to the naysayers.
The former Oasis frontman revealed in a recent interview that his son Gene introduced him to the UK grime rapper, but it's likely many old-school fans of the rocker won't know who he is.
But the Northampton rapper - whose real name is Tyron Kaymone Frampton - has a message for the naysayers, who'd rather see The Verve legend over him in the support slot.
"I'm ready to just get on it," he told Sky News about the gig.
He also sent a message to fans who may not know who he is and might prefer to see Richard Ashcroft support instead.
"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 have the support and recognition of Liam Gallagher fans yet, 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.
