Noel Gallagher discovers no kind deed goes unpunished

It was actually quite a sweet gesture for Noel Gallagher to offer people who saw the first Oasis Heaton Park gig their money back if the power cut had spoiled their evening.

Unfortunately, he forgot what Oasis fans are like.

20,000 of the 70,000 have decided to take him up on the offer. Noel is disappointed:

The guitarist said: "It seems that around 20,000 of you have asked for a refund from that night at Heaton Park!! 20,000!! So you were genuinely disappointed?

"I don't recall seeing a 20,000 gap in the crowd. Cheeky -----. Tsk ... some people," he wrote on his online blog.

[The quote comes from the Telegraph - nice of them to differentiate between Gallagher's 'online blog' and, presumably, an offline one?]

Isn't there something rather Gallagheresque about taking up the offer of cash back whether you really feel you deserve it or not?
>And... you know... making offers that you don't want people to take you up on... it's like... teasing or something...
