This morning we awoke to the news that U2 are celebrating the 30th anniversary of iconic record The Joshua Tree with full-scale, full-album tours of Europe and North America. Here in the States, U2 will be joined by snooze-fest opening acts like Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, and One Republic; but across the Atlantic, U2 have enlisted Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds for support duty.
And Liam Gallagher is having none of it.
“I see all that brown nosing is finally starting to pay off,” the former Oasis frontman tweeted, signing off with “NO SHAME LG x”.

Liam is apparently referring to Noel’s gushing praise of U2 over the years. As the NME notes, Noel has been outspoken in his admiration for Bono and the boys, and in the past has called it an “honor” and a “dream come true” to share a stage.
As many on Twitter pointed out, Oasis opened for U2 back in 1997, but hey, who’s keeping track of anything anymore.
