Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher let down by Mumford and Sons

Noel Gallagher feels ''let down'' by Ed Sheeran and Mumford and Sons.

The 'If I Had a Gun' singer approached the folk rockers and singer/songwriter Ed to perform at the Teenage Cancer Trust charity shows he is organising this year, but after initially agreeing, he claims they let him down.

He told ShortList magazine: ''I did most of the work last year, because I was out at festivals, so I tapped most of the bands up then.

''I'd talk to Ed Sheeran and Mumford & Sons thinking, 'I'll just f***ing do the seven nights myself; what the f**k am I asking these people for?' And I got let down a lot.

''Everybody says yes to your face. Everybody. And then the agent will call, and their management will call and then their PR will call and say, 'Ah, they're going to be in Australia at the time.' Really? Well they never said that to me.''

Noel feels the issue has something to do with a class divide.

He added: ''What's interesting is all the working-class bands said yes straight off the bat, no f***ing inkling of when it was.

''The middle-class bands said yes and wriggled out of it. I dunno what that means, but it must mean something. It was an interesting summer.

''But I will say, if the people that blew me off but said they'll do it next year actually do it, it might be the greatest event since Woodstock.''

Noel's final line up for the Teenage Cancer Trust shows, which take place at London's Royal Albert Hall from March 19, include shows headlined by himself, Kasabian, Primal Scream, Ryan Adams, and comedians Russell Brand and Noel Fielding.
