While there have been times in the past that Liam and Noel Gallagher have been equally outspoken to the point where even we can’t tell them apart, Noel was recently mistaken for his brother Liam at a recent U2 gig, with Liam responding to the situation in a completely brilliant way.

After attending one of U2’s recent concerts in Twickenham, England, British Olympian Sir Mo Farah posted a Tweet in which he spoke of his excitement to have been hanging out with Liam Gallagher. The only issue is, well, Liam Gallagher wasn’t there.

“Chilling with my boy Liam Gallagher U2 concert in Twickenham,” Farah wrote on Instagram. To be fair though, this seems pretty above board, especially since Liam Gallagher wrote back to Mo Farah Twitter in a pretty un-Liam way, saying “Good to see u2 mo as you were LG x”.

Mo Farah seemed to have realised his mistake soon after though, because in an Instagram post, the athlete made sure to tag the correct Gallagher brother.


All things considered, it’s a little surprising that Farah confused the two, mainly due to the fact that Liam Gallagher recently came out to say that he would “rather eat his own shit than listen to U2“. Plus Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds were the support act for U2, and then there’s the fact that that Noel Gallagher was even up on stage performing a rendition of ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ with the Irish rockers. We’re starting to think Farah might’ve just been trying to wind Liam up.

So was this a case of genuine confusion on Mo Farah’s part? Or was he just stirring up Liam Gallagher in a way that would usually get a rise out of him? Whichever way it went down, we’ve got to say, Liam responded to the situation like a champ.
