We’ve barely recovered from the sheer bliss that was Twenty One Pilots paying tribute to Manchester Britpop royalty Oasis during their appearance at Reading Festival on Saturday night. Now, the band have done it again — and they’ve enlisted the help of Post Malone.
During the band’s set at Leeds Festival, they invited Posty on stage for a rendition of (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? classic ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger.’ Malone assumed the duties of vocals and guitar, whilst Tyler held down the fort on piano. It’s truly stunning stuff, you can check out footage of the performance below.

The performance fell on the same day as the 19th anniversary of Oasis’ headlining set at the same festival.
“We wanna thank you as a couple of Americans. Thanks for letting us come across the pond and play at your festival,” Tyler Joseph shared, prefacing the band’s performance of ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ during their Reading Festival. “We have such a deep respect for your musical culture, your festival culture over here. For you to let us be a part of that, it really means a lot to us,” he added. “So this next one I dedicate to you as a thank you.”
Twenty One Pilots were evidently not the only band missing the presence of Oasis. During Foo Fighters monolithic headlining set, the band proposed that the crowd start a petition to reunite the band.
“One of these days we’ll get Oasis back. One of these days,” Hawkins told the crowd, before launching into a cover of Queen and David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’. “We’re trying,” Grohl responded. Hawkins added, “We’re trying. Let’s sign a petition.”
