Don’t look back at the bodega cashier in anger, Liam.
Liam Gallagher, the 44-year-old lead singer of Oasis, flipped out on Twitter after he was asked to show ID in order to buy cigarettes in a New York City convenience store.
“I’ve just been told I can’t buy cigs unless I got ID im 4F–IN4,” he wrote, in anger. “Has the world gone mad.”
Gallagher did not reveal where the attempted purchase took place, but he was playing a solo show at The McKittrick Hotel on W. 27th St. this Friday night. He also has a gig scheduled Saturday at Rough Trade in Williamsburg.

In NYC, the minimum age to buy a pack of cigarettes is 21. Some might say Gallagher should have definitely maybe passed the ID test.
The “Live Forever” singer was met with many jokes from fans, who were quick to break out a “Cigarettes & Alcohol” reference or say he should have returned to the shop with magazines and records showing off his famous face.
The English rocker hasn’t performed with his group Oasis in years due to a battered relationship with his bandmate and brother, Noel Gallagher.
Liam called his brother a “sad f–k” back in June when Noel did not show up at the One Love Manchester benefit concert.

The following morning, the “Morning Glory” rocker shared a tweet in much higher spirits: “Good day sunshiiiiiiiiine as you were.”
“There’s nothing like a good burn round Central Park 1st thing in the morning,” he continued. “As you were brothers n sisters.”
