Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher hates touring in the U.S. - because the audiences are too busy eating pizza to appreciate his performances.
The band is widely recognised as one of the U.K.'s most popular acts, and frequently sells out shows across the world.
Oasis embarked on a North American tour last year (08), but were forced to scrap several dates after guitarist Noel was attacked on-stage by a fan in Toronto, Canada in September.
But the cancelled gigs seemingly didn't upset the star too much - he insists his past experiences playing for American audiences were "soul-destroying".
He says, "I'm not too keen on touring there. It's not like Europe.
"There are a lot of people eating pizza. It gets a bit soul-destroying after a while when you're playing.
"I'm not keen on it but you have to go there I suppose."
Gallagher's alleged attacker, 47-year-old Daniel Sullivan, is due to face a charge of aggravated assault at a pre-trial hearing on Friday (06Mar09).
