Liam Gallagher, 46, has spoken out against his brother Noel Gallagher, 52, who labelled his younger fans "f**king idiots" after they continued to demand Oasis songs at his High Flying Birds gigs.
The former Oasis frontman took to Twitter earlier this week and slammed his estranged sibling for "slagging of the youth".
Writing to his 3.1million followers, and defending Noel's teenage listeners, he explained everyone is welcome at his gigs.
He penned: "The thing I’ve got a problem with about slagging of the yoot [youth] is that some of those kids are the kids of people who made us from day one.
"You're all welcome at my gigs – bring your grandparents, your aunties ,your uncles, bring your pets. As you were, why me, why not LG x."
A fan quickly backed up Liam's thoughts, saying: "My parents met whilst watching Oasis at Glastonbury in 1994! Now I come and see you live."
Liam responded: "See that’s what it’s all about – say hello to the old folk."

One user, who wasn't impressed with Noel's cruel remarks, didn't hold back, writing: "Exactly, well said. He has no right to be saying that and it’s upset me. I love Noel’s music and I love yours, but I don’t know why I should anymore if I get called names for supporting him."
"Im with you, he’s ungrateful," the singer replied.
While a third has lost interest over the veteran musician comments, saying: "Agree Liam. My 19-year-old son is a fan and he’s been to eight of your gigs with me.
"I’m glad you realise you have a whole new generation of fans, kids who are our age when we first fell in love with Oasis. Why would one push a whole new generation away? I don’t get it."
Taking a swipe at Noel, he added: "Because he thinks he’s made for life. He wants to be careful now before people start. That wasn’t a threat, it’s just my opinion."
Liam's remarks comes days after Noel discussed his newfound fanbase during an interview with The Sun.
He said: "When I play those songs it is an incredible thing since the documentary Supersonic came out. It has reinvigorated a whole new fan base, sadly they all do turn up to the gigs dressed as Liam with four pairs of sunglasses on, rolling around going 'I'm mad for it'.
"The new stuff that I am doing, they f***ing hate it. Which makes me want to do it more."
Not happy with his younger fans, he exclaimed: "You little f***ing idiot, you are only 15.
"What the f***! You were only 10 when the brand broke up, f*** off."
