Noel Gallagher "can't live in a world" where Ed Sheeran is playing Wembley Stadium.

The former Oasis lead guitarist and vocalist has blasted the 'Thinking Out Loud' hitmaker, who will play three dates at iconic 80,000 capacity stadium in north-west London later this year.

Referring to the concerts, the 47-year-old musician said: "I don't think I can live in a world where that's even possible.

"When you hear that kind of polished pop and then there's a ginger guy with a f***ing guitar it seems subversive, but it's f***ing not."

The 23-year-old singer/songwriter responded to the comments by Noel, writing on Twitter: "i can live in it, its really enjoyable (sic)"

Noel also slammed the state of the current music scene, explaining that it was a "strange time" for music.

He told NME magazine: "It's a strange time, and it seems like the whole thing is embedded for good now, for f***ing forever.

"It's not all over, but it'll go back to the way it was in the early '80s where indie bands are the alternative thing, the lower level. In the early '80s everyone at indie labels, even major labels, were trying to push this music to the fore because everything else was s**t, and maybe it'll happen again, but I don't see it for the next decade."
