Oasis to exhibit giant guitar on London streets

Kasabian and Razorlight also feature in Gibson Guitartown

Oasis leader Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller and Graham Coxon are among the guitarists exhibiting giant guitars across London as part of a free art exhibition.

The skyline of South Bank’s More London area by City Hall has been transformed for a 10 week out door public art display from today (June 26).

There are 30 hand-painted 10ft high free-standing replica Gibson Les Paul guitars will celebrate a host of bands including Razorlight, Kasabian, Keane, Kaiser Chiefs and Dirty Pretty Things all decorating them with unique designs.

Legends including Rod Stewart and Robert Plant have also contributed to the event.

All guitars, including an additional 30 hand-painted regular Gibson SG guitars on display within The O2, will be available to view for 10 weeks, with a charity auction planned for later this year.

All funds raised from the sale of the guitars will benefit Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy, The Prince’s Trust and Teenage Cancer Trust.
