Liam Gallagher has said he will “make it up” to his Irish fans after he was forced to cancel this Friday’s show in Belfast. 

The singer took to Twitter to break the hard news, explain that he was still recovering after his accident at the weekend when he fell out of a helicopter.

“Absolutely gutted to cancel my Belfast show this weekend,” he tweeted. “I had an accident after IOW (Isle of Wight) festival and have bust my nose so can’t sing.

“The Doctors have told me to rest up. Apologies to all the people who has bought tickets.. the show is being rescheduled...I’ll make it up to ya. LG x

The former Oasis frontman, 48, headlined Friday night of the music event with a set including the hits Live Forever, Supersonic and Roll With It.

On Saturday afternoon, he tweeted a picture of himself with a plaster covering his nose and ointment applied to a number of cuts.

Gallagher compared himself to the late The Who drummer Keith Moon, who was infamous for his wild behaviour.

He also joked the image could feature on the front of his next solo album.

The singer tweeted: “So check this out, I fell out the helicopter last night you couldn’t rite (sic) it all good who said RnR is dead? Keith Moon eat your drum skin out. C’mon you know LG x”

Gallagher jokingly responded to one fan who asked how high he had fallen from, saying “100 thousand feet”.

Another fan asked if there was any CCTV footage of the fall, prompting him to respond: “Yeah it’s in the next video."
