April 27 and 28 saw Oasis headline their first ever stadium shows. Fittingly, they took place at Maine Road, then home to Liam and Noel Gallagher’s Manchester City FC. “Maine Road was where we all used to go as kids,” Noel later said of the shows. “It looked like a big front room, except there were 42,000 people in it.” Landing after the release of ‘What’s The Story (Morning Glory)?’ but before the band’s gigantic shows at Knebworth Park had even been announced, these gigs marked the first time Oasis joined rock’s super league.
