The band celebrate the end of their world tour with [b]Stereophonics[/b], [a]Primal Scream[/a] and a host of others...
All five members of Oasis were present at the bash at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds city centre last night (August 28), which marked the end of the band's troubled global jaunt at the end of the Carling Premier Weekend Festival in Leeds.
Liam and Noel Gallagher looked to have put their differences behind them, chatting and joking with each other and the other members of the band throughout the night.
There was a reunion too for former Stone Roses guitarist John Squire and bassist Gary 'Mani' Mounfield, now playing with Primal Scream, the pair speaking together amiably and appearing to have patched up the differences which caused Squire to walk out on the band in 1996.
Now heavily bearded, Squire spent the evening engaged in deep conversation with Liam, Primals vocalist Bobby GIllespie and Stereophonics vocalist Kelly Jones. Jones told nme.com that the band's new album is coming along "very well".
Also at the party were the seemingly ever-present Justine Frischmann and Mew from Elastica, accompanied by Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite. All three appeared to have been partying together since the Saturday of the Reading festival.
