Lewis Capaldi heats up Noel Gallagher feud with TRNSMT festival entrance

Lewis Capaldi provided another level of heat to his feud with Noel Gallagher while walking on stage for his set at TRNSMT festival yesterday (14 July).

The Glaswegian singer/songwriter has been doing everything Noel Gallagher has said over the past few weeks, and debuted his new persona, Chewis Capaldi, as he made his entrance at TRNSMT festival yesterday kitted out with a Chewbacca mask and a #Merky t-shirt after Stormzy covered Capaldi's "Someone You Loved".

Noel Gallagher called Capaldi "Fucking Chewbacca" in a recent interview with Variety, spurring on Capaldi's comical response.

It all started last month when Noel Gallagher slagged Capaldi off, resulting in Capaldi strolling into his Glastonbury set in a parka, complete with a t-shirt with Noel's face on it underneath. Capaldi also managed to get a picture with Liam Gallagher, which probably pissed off Noel even more.

A couple of weeks ago he raised the bar even higher, and decided to serenade a group of people at Barn On The Farm festival with "Don't Look Back In Anger".

In Gallagher's interview with Variety, he said of his daughter Anaïs and Capaldi, "She’s gonna have a bad day soon if she wants to be Lewis Capaldi when she grows up." Last week (11 July), Capaldi shared a clip of him hanging out with Gallagher's daughter Anaïs while watching Noel's set at Mad Cool festival in Madrid, shouting, "Dad?!".

Lewis Capaldi plays London's O2 Academy Brixton on 29 November. Find out more.
