Guitarist walks after gig cancellation

Noel Gallagher quit Oasis tonight (August 28).

Following the Manchester band’s cancelled show at the Paris Rock en Seine festival this evening, he posted the following statement on Oasisinet.com.

“It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight,” he wrote. “People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with [singer, his brother] Liam a day longer.”

The band pulled out of the Paris show just before they were due onstage, with organisers allegedly displaying a message explaining an “altercation” had caused the cancellation.
