Robbie Williams made a dig at Liam Gallagher while performing during his Las Vegas residency, reigniting the feud the pair have shared over the years. He called upon his fans to Tweet abuse at the former Oasis frontman at the end of the show.
The singers were briefly friends in the 90’s, however, over the years their relationship has become hostile. The latest blow was dealt by Williams at his show at The Encore Hotel .
The Sun reports that Williams said this following his performance, “If you have enjoyed the show, I have been Robbie Williams, and if you haven’t and you are upset about anything, I have been Liam Gallagher.”
He continued: “In fact, if you want to start a hashtag, you can put ‘Liam Gallagher was shit tonight’, if you want.”
This is just the latest happening in a long line of events in the publicised feud. Williams famously challenged Liam to a fight at the 2000 Brit Awards. He also told Liam’s brother and former Oasis bandmate Noel to “kiss my perfectly formed backside” while performing onstage in 2010.
Both brothers responded accordingly, with Liam calling him a “fat fucking idiot” in 2013 while Noel referred to him as “the fat dancer from Take That”.
Despite this feud Williams still had time to praise Liam in 2017 when he told NME, “I’d do a song with him. My favourite song of the year is his track ‘For What It’s Worth’. I think it’s the best song either Liam or Noel has written in the last 20 years.”
“It’s amazing and timeless; it just hits that sweet spot. It’s universal and speaks straight to the heart. He just got it completely right. I love it.”
However, last year Williams also stated that the Oasis were likely to reform due to both Liam and Noel’s solo careers being “not great”. In another article from The Sun, Williams had this to say:
“Liam Gallagher has just come back and he’s done pretty well. He had a platinum record with his solo album and I think that’s what everybody was waiting for. I think the next time he releases an album it won’t do as well. Noel’s album didn’t do too good either. I think it sold like 70,000 copies or something, which for Noel isn’t great.”
