OASIS SELLING OUT, MAN

Demand for stadium show tickets melts phone lines as band add more dates...

Oasis have added two more dates to the schedule of summer stadium shows after a massive response when tickets went on sale on Saturday morning.

They’ve added a second show at Bolton Reebok Stadium on Sunday July 16 and another London Wembley Stadium show on Friday, July 21.

Tickets for all dates are on sale now.

Meanwhile, Noel Gallagher has told Heat magazine that the opening track of forthcoming album ‘Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants’ – entitled ‘Fuckin’ In The Bushes’ – originally featured a loop from a Jimi Hendrix song recorded for the BBC which had to be taken off at the last minute because of clearance problems.

“The title makes sense when you actually hear it,” Noel said. “It has a lot of vocal samples from a film. It’s quite a hard-sounding song, but it’s also quite funny as well.”

The first song Oasis have done by Liam Gallagher‘Little James’ – written while he was feeling homesick on the road with the band – is said to sound like ‘Wonderwall’.

“Well, it worked the first time didn’t it?” said Liam.
