Oasis' first UK tour since 2006 sold out within an hour of going on sale this morning (August 20).

All 180,000 tickets for the 18-date tour were snapped up by fans over the phone and internet - with no reported network problems.

NME.COM also understands that several thousand fans queued for tickets outside London's Wembley Arena, Bournemouth and Sheffield.

A spokesperson for Oasis said: "The demand for tickets this morning was just immense. All the ticket sites slowed down severely but nothing crashed and the system worked very smoothly. We want to thank the fans for their patience and look forward to seeing you all at the shows."

Oasis' new album, 'Dig Out Your Soul', is released on October 6.
