English singer Liam Gallagher has announced that he suffered a facial injury after falling off a helicopter.
The 48-year-old former Oasis frontman turned solo artist headlined the Isle of Wight festival last night but suffered a freak injury following his set.
“So check this out I fell out the helicopter last night you couldn’t rite it all good who said RnR is dead Keith moon eat your drum skin out C’mon you know LG x.”
He had two plasters on his nose and scrapes and bruises across his face in the photo he shared.
When a fan asked about the height of the fall, saying Gallagher must have missed the step and “face-planted” after the helicopter had landed but did not mention this “because that’s not very rock n roll,” the singer jokingly responded by saying, “100 thousand feet”. To another fan asking if there was any footage or CCTV of the incident, he said: “Yeah, it’s in the next video.”
His accident came a day after the premiere of Oasis: Knebworth 1996 – a new film on the band’s iconic gigs in Knebworth Park. The massive gigs followed the 1994 debut album Maybe, and it is an even bigger follow-up (What’s the Story) Morning Glory.
