This weekend’s Isle of Wight festival was headlined by Snow Patrol, David Guetta, Duran Duran and Liam Gallagher, who shared photos of their injuries after falling from a helicopter while leaving the festival site after their headline set.
Earlier in the day, Gallagher closed the day at the Isle of Wight festival with a set that included several of his singles along with some classic Oasis hits.
Posting to Twitter the next day, Gallagher shared a photo of his injuries with a post that said: “So look at this I fell from a helicopter last night, you can’t [write] This.”
He reassured fans that he was “all good” now before joking: “Who said that”. [Rock n Roll] Killed. Keith Moon Eat Your Drum Skin Out. Let’s know.”
He then shared a photo of a bottle of Estrella with the caption: “What doesn’t kill makes you. Tuff is going.”
Elsewhere after the festival, Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson reacted to people opposing the COVID-19 vaccine after comments on stage at the event.
During the band’s set, Wilson shouted the names of vaccine makers Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca, asking fans to cheer, depending on which one he had received.
Then he said: “Let’s hear it for the anti-vaxxers”, which was widely shouted at from the crowd.
