The singer was also accused of ‘trashing’ his funerals as he left the stage by a number of fans, with one writing: ‘Bad way to go about it. Stop the music and explain instead of throwing down the maracas and tambourine and walking away like a child.

One quipped: “How was he supposed to report it if he didn’t know at the time,” while another said: “Don’t apologize big man, your health always comes first.”

He’s been busy lately as he’s toured numerous festivals around Europe, delivering a high-energy performance at the Lucca Summer Festival in Italy just days before his diagnosis.
He also performed a show-stopping performance at Knebworth last month, returning more than 20 years after Oasis played their biggest shows at the venue.
And hoping he’s on the mend, the rocker is set to hit Finland on the 15th before heading to New Zealand and Australia just days later.
