An exhibition of over 100 Oasis photographs from the band's original roadie is to go on display for one night only in London next month.

Phil Smith, the band's original roadie and tour DJ, will display the images from his private collection at a 'Definitely Maybe' celebration at Scala in London on August 30. As well as the photographs, there will also be a DJ set from Smith and a performance of the 1994 album in full by Oasis tribute act Oasis UK.

Blur tribute band Blurd will also appear on the night alongside DJs from a selection of Britpop and Baggy clubnights from across the country.

One of Smith's pictures has been used in the forthcoming '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' box-set reissue, due for release later this year. The album, which was originally released in October 1995 and has since sold over 22 million copies worldwide, will be re-released as part of the Chasing The Sun reissue package – the first of which was 'Definitely Maybe' earlier this year.

The new edition of the album has been remastered from the original tapes by Ian Cooper at London’s Metropolis Studios, supervised by the album’s producer Owen Morris. The pair were part of a small team who have managed to hunt down unheard demos and live material, as well as never-seen-before photos and memorabilia which will be included in the new artwork.

Despite the fact they are not currently together as a band, Oasis were recently voted as the band most NME readers want to see headline Glastonbury festival in 2015. They topped the poll ahead of David Bowie, Foo Fighters, Muse and Fleetwood Mac.
