OASIS SELL OUT

The band sell close to 250,000 tickets for summer 2005 shows this morning - third date added in Manchester..

OASIS have been regained their crown as the pre-eminent rock band in Britain after they sold an estimated 250,000 tickets this morning for live shows next summer.

The band have now added a third date at the City Of Manchester Stadium after shows on July 2 and 3 sold out by 11.30am. They will now also play their hometown on June 30.

A spokesperson for the band reported these shows to be amongst the fastest selling ever in the band’s history. “It’s been an incredible morning,” she said. “Oasis currency remains sky-high.”

The band have also sold out a show at Milton Keynes Bowl (July 9) and Glasgow’s Hampden Park (June 29). Massive queues have been reported in Glasgow where fans had an opportunity to pick up tickets the old fashioned way rather than online or by phone.

It is unclear if further dates will be added.
