Gallagher Slams Bono And Martin

OASIS rocker NOEL GALLAGHER has blasted U2 frontman BONO and COLDPLAY's CHRIS MARTIN - for turning their gigs into a guilt trip for fans.
The Wonderwall hitmaker insists concert-goers don't want to hear about killer diseases and world poverty when they see their heroes perform.
He has urged his fellow rockers to drop politics from their music - because fans just want to have an enjoyable evening out.
Gallagher tells Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera, "We get on the stage and play. I have been to loads of concerts where bands don't play, they just talk about politics. At a U2 or Coldplay concert there is always a message about poor people or people dying from hunger. OK, but can't we just have a nice evening? Do we always have to feel guilty?"
