The Ballad Of The Mighty I singer shared an update about the latest line-up of his band ahead of their gig supporting U2 this weekend.

Noel Gallagher has updated fans on the progress of his band rehearsals and thrown in a subtle dig at his brother in the process.

The Oasis songsmith is supporting U2 on their 30th anniversary The Joshua Tree tour, and he took to Instagram to share his excitement at "seeing old friends" and "sampling the delights of The U2 Catering Experience".

However, the rocker finished his post in an uncustomary fashion, writing "AS YOU WEREN'T" in reference to his brother's favourite turn of phrase and the name of his forthcoming debut album.

See his post here:

The Riverman rocker was no doubt esponding to his estranged brother's comment about the Irish rockers earlier this week, where he said he'd rather "eat shit" than listen to the band.

His outspoken younger brother also slammed U2 as "beige" and "toff rock".

Despite an Oasis reunion looking unlikely, Liam Gallagher has had no problem singing tracks penned by his brother of late, and Glastonbury Festival saw him perform Don't Look Back In Anger for the very first time. 

Watch it here:

The song has become an anthem for Manchester following the tragic attacks which saw 22 killed and many more injured at an Ariana Grande concert.
