The band play a triumphant set at the KROQ Inland Invasion…
Oasis wrapped up their final date of the West Coast leg of their American tour with a triumphant set at Los Angeles radio station KROQ’s Inland Invasion on Saturday (September 17).
The band, who performed a sold out gig at the Hollywood Bowl earlier in the week, returned to the Southern California area to thrill nearly 60,000 fans with an hour long set.
A host of artists including members of The Bravery, Jet and Weezer stayed on following their sets to watch the group’s performance made up of classics including ‘Lyla’, ‘Wonderwall’, ‘Champagne Supernova’, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’, and ‘Live Forever’, which frontman Liam Gallagher dedicated to hurricane ravished New Orleans.
Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan also stayed on past his event-opening set missing his scheduled ride to Phoenix on Sunday (September 18) to catch the rock giants.
“I was supposed to go on the Jet tour bus and their tour manager was like, ‘We’re going now!’ I went ‘Nah, I’m fucking staying. I want to watch Oasis,’” he told NME.COM. “They were pulling me going, ‘We’re going now!’ and I’m going ‘Nah, I’m going to get a flight tomorrow,’ but I did stay behind to watch Oasis.”
Oasis’ performance capped off the day long event billed by KROQ as the “last festival of summer”. Other highlights of the show included a greatest hits set by Beck, a jolly mid-afternoon ska romp by Madness, Bloc Party on the side stage and Weezer battling through sound difficulties to play for the fans.
