Oasis have revealed that their UK and Irish stadium tour has broken box office records - and they've added yet another date for summer 2009.

The band will now play Coventry's Ricoh Arena Stadium with support from hometown boys The Enemy on July 7.

Tickets for that show go on sale at 9am on October 30.

Sunderland, Edinburgh and Dublin are now also sold out, along with the original two nights at Manchester's Heaton Park and London's Wembley Stadium, which reached capacity earlier this afternoon.

Oasis have since added third nights in Manchester (June 4) and London (July 9) at the same venues.

With tickets going on sale at 10am (BST) this morning (October 24), the band had sold half a million tickets by 3pm.

Oasis co-promoter Chris York of SJM Concerts speculated that "this has to be the most tickets ever sold by an artist in the UK in one day".

A spokesperson for the band added: "This proves Oasis continue to go from strength to strength and increase in popularity. Following their fantastically received arena tour this autumn and critically acclaimed new album, these will be the must-see shows of 2009."

The full Oasis tour is now:

Manchester Heaton Park (June 4, 6, 7)
Sunderland Stadium Of Light (10)
Cardiff Millennium Stadium (12)
Edinburgh Murrayfield Stadium (17)
Dublin Slane Castle (20)
Coventry Ricoh Arena Stadium (July 7)
London Wembley Stadium (9, 11, 12)
