And they happened to bump into none other than the late, great, Diego Maradona.
And his meeting with the Gallagher brothers lived up to that billing.
Liam, 48, told Noisey in 2017: “We was in Argentina, and we’d done a gig.
“Next minute we’re sat in the bar having a f**king drink, and about 30 people come legging it in, like the Ant Hill Mob.
“We were going ‘Who the f**king hell’s that?’ Sting was at the bar crying cos he’d had his f**king dressing room robbed, and anyway we found out it was Maradona.
“He’d gone upstairs with a load of f**king madheads, and a load of f**ing, women of the night.
“And we were going like, can we go up and meet him, to the interpreter. And the interpreter said ‘Alright cool, let me go and square it with them.’

“He’s gone up, come back down and gone ‘Only the Gallagher brothers can go up.’ So we were like, ‘laters’.
“We steamed up there and there’s loads of f**king, activity going on, and Maradona’s in the middle of the room doing football tricks with a bottle top.
“And his eyes were f**king like that [huge], and ours weren’t far off, and I just went like, ‘It’s a bit moody in here, let’s get a quick picture with him and f**k off.
“And he’s sweating his b******s off, and we turn around [to the interpreter] and he says: ‘He told me to tell you, if yous leave with any of these b*****s, he’ll have you shot.'”
After news of Maradona’s death, Gallagher later tweeted: “Maradona GOAT rip x.”
Brother Noel also paid his respects, sharing a picture of that meeting in 1997 along with the words: “What a life. What a legend.”
