OASIS KICK OFF MASSIVE UK TOUR

The band open in Glasgow…

OASIS kicked off their latest UK stadium tour last night (June 29) at HAMPDEN PARK in GLASGOW, playing a set of old and new material which was almost identical to their UK club tour of last month.

Amidst the typically simplistic set (some large video screens showing the band and pre-recorded video inserts), singer Liam Gallagher looked suave in pinstripe jacket and floppy fedora, while brother Noel was dressed-down in a leather jacket and T-shirt.

Liam also appeared to be in a joking mood, asking before ’Songbird: “Is anybody here into Anthrax? Well, fuck off then” and dedicating ‘Wonderwall’ “To all the ladies – but not you, you’re only 12.”

Among the 18 songs played, eight were from the band’s first two classic albums ’Definitely Maybe’ and ’(What’s The Story) Morning Glory’ and seven – including next single ’The Importance Of Being Idle’, which Noel described as “the last great song we wrote” – were from the latest studio album ’Don’t Believe The Truth’.

Support came from Super Furry Animals, [a][/a], The Stands and The Redwalls.
