Oasis to tour with Black Crowes?

Oasis and The Black Crowes are planning to tour together in 2001...

OASIS are reportedly in talks with THE BLACK CROWES to undertake a joint US tour early next year.

According to Reuters news agency
in Los Angeles, both bands managers are in discussions over the co-headlining tour, which would begin in June.

Crowes manager Pete Angelus said: "If we can work out the details, the tour will mark the pairing of America and England's greatest rock 'n' roll bands. God help us
all."

Both bands are notorious for their battling brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher and Chris and Rich Robinson in the Black Crowes.

After failing to make a significant impact there live, Oasis' live album 'Familiar To Millions' is released on November 21 in the US.

The Black Crowes were due to tour Europe with Jimmy Page this year, but were thwarted when the former Led Zeppelin axeman suffered a back injury. They are currently recording a new studio album with producer Don Was.

Oasis' first live date of 2001 will be the Rock In Rio festival in January. They join a host of acts confirmed for the extravaganza, including REM, Guns N' Roses and Britney Spears.
