Noel Gallagher has admitted that he regrets storming out of Oasis's last gig before it even started, saying he wishes he had the memory of playing it.

He and brother Liam were supposed to be playing a show in Paris in 2009, but had a huge bust-up backstage before the gig that led to Noel walking out and quitting the band.

They have been estranged from each other since then, but Noel has told the Daily Star he wishes he'd taken to the stage with Liam one last time – bringing their row with him.

He said: "We were getting p***** and fighting and then me going: F*** it, I'm going home, f*** off!

"With the benefit of time, I don't know whether it would have been better to stay and do the gig which would have been like a monumental, mad f***ing Oasis gig because the fight would have carried on to the stage, maybe not the physical fighting but the verbals between us."

He added: "It would have been a mad gig.

"Sometimes I think, 'I wish I had the memory of that gig.' That would have been the way to go out. But it had to happen."

The brothers fell out over Liam wanting to put an advert for his clothing label Pretty Green in the tour programme, but Noel disagreed and felt the brand shouldn't be pushed by Oasis.

In a 2011 press conference for his own band, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, he explained his side of what had caused the fight.

Claiming that Liam had thrown a plum at him and wielded his guitar "like an axe" at his head, he said: "I didn’t think it was right for him to be flogging his gear to our fans. There was a massive row about it.

"It slowly went downhill after that."
