Lewis Capaldi has made his full Glastonbury debut with an Other Stage set that saw him offering a brilliant response to Noel Gallagher‘s recent comments about the Scottish star.
“Who’s this Capaldi fella?” Noel told Radio X. “Who the fuck’s that idiot?”
The idiot, it transpires, has had the last laugh. As fans awaited Capaldi’s arrival on stage, a clip of Gallagher’s comments played out on the big screens moments before the singer made the perfect entrance.

Nice parka, @lewiscapaldi! That's certainly one way to make an entrance! ?

Decked out in an Oasis-style Parka, Capaldi defiantly swaggered on stage to Naughty by Nature’s ‘Here Comes The Money’ before taking off the coat to reveal a t-shirt featuring Gallagher’s face inside a love heart.
After opening with ‘Grace’, the set saw Capaldi launching straight into the brutal self-deprecation which has played an unquestionably large role in his rise to imminent super stardom.
“If you like questionably chubby men from Scotland you’re in for a treat,” he said.
As temperatures continued to soar across Worthy Farm, Capaldi also mulled the possibility of taking his shirt off – much to the excitement of the braying crowd.
If I take it off a girl will never kiss me again, it’s not a nice sight,” he eventually admitted.If, at times, the show felt unexpectedly like a stand-up set, the songs were still enough to prove Capaldi’s talents as a gravelly troubadour. ‘Bruises’, for instance, proved itself to be one of his greatest efforts – providing a soulful twist on Capaldi’s sound.
