Watch: Noel Gallagher & Damon Albarn Show Their ‘Tender’ Love

Written by Mike Hohnen on March 25, 2013

Blur and Oasis frontmen Noel Gallager and Damon Albarn have put the past behind them and performed together on the Blur track Tender.

The footage picked up by The Music Network shows the two jamming at London’s Royal Albert Hall in support of the recent Teenage Cancer Trust gig. On stage, the dynamic pair are accompanied by Blur guitarist Graham Coxon, and The Jam’s Paul Weller.

Throughout the history of contemporary music, you’d struggle to find a rivalry as bitter as the one between seminal Britpop outfits Blur and Oasis. For years the two were at each other’s throats – there was even a doco about it.

There have been many interesting developments in the beef between the bands over the years. Gallagher once stated that the drama was started on behalf of NME and Blur’s management in an attempt to boost album sales and to help push magazines.

But the bands themselves didn’t do too much to help. In 1995, Gallagher went on record as saying he hoped Albarn and Blur guitarist Alex James could “catch AIDS and die” but later apologised.

Fast forward 12 years and Noely seems to have lost a lot of the hate, telling NME (them again):

“I’ve got a lot of respect for Damon, I really do mean it. Because I’m indifferent to Damon he thinks that I think he’s a cunt. Our Liam will talk to him, I won’t because he’s just another singer in a band to me, but I don’t think he’s a cunt. Good luck to him!”

And now here they are on stage together, AIDS-free.
