The Scottish singer took a swipe at Noel Gallagher’s “Chewbacca” comments during last night’s TRNSMT festival.
In an interview with Variety Magazine, the High Flying Birds musician, 52, compared Lewis Capaldi, 22, to the Star Wars character, citing: “”F***ing Chewbacca should enjoy his 15 minutes. The greatest day of his life that I slagged him off or called him an idiot.”
At Scotland’s biggest festival in front of a 60,000 strong crowd, the West Lothian native took to the stage fashioning a Chewbacca mask.
Playfully trolling the musical icon, Lewis removed the mask and dedicated his rendition of Oasis hit Don’t Look Back In Anger to his “dear, dear father” Noel and hilariously changed the title to “Don’t Chewbac In Anger”.
The latest stunt comes days after Lewis changed his Twitter name to “Chewis Capaldi”.
The Hold Me While You Wait hitmaker then modified his display picture by adding his face onto the legendary Wookiee warrior.
Fans heaped praised on the star calling him a “hero”.
The feud first started when Noel slammed modern music during an interview with Radio X in Heaton Park.
He labelled the current music industry “f***ing w**k at the moment”, before jokingly asking: “Who’s this Capaldi fella? Who the f**k’s that idiot?”
Lewis took to Instagram where he told his fans he was “delighted” to be “slagged off” by Noel, and explained the remarks beat having a number one record.
In another public move, Capaldi played back Noel’s Radio X interview before his Glastonbury Other Stage slot.
He brilliantly swaggered on stage wearing an Oasis-style parka coat, hat and shades before revealing a heart T-shirt with Gallagher’s face on it.
Noel then blasted the songwriter’s motherland by branding Scotland “a third world country”.
