Noel Gallagher settles Britpop feud with Blur


Britpop's longest feud will be laid to rest when Noel Gallagher performs with Blur duo Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon at a Royal Albert Hall charity concert.

Gallagher, the Oasis songwriter, will headline a concert featuring his former rivals in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust next March.

A "battle of the bands" for the No 1 slot at the height of Britpop in 1995 sparked a bitter feud between Noel and Liam Gallagher and the members of Blur.
