Oasis kick off world tour in Seattle

Watch Noel Gallagher's acoustic set from last night's gig

Oasis kicked off their world tour in Seattle last night (August 26).

The band – supported by Ryan Adams – played the city’s WaMu Theater as they got their 2008 dates underway.

Opening with ‘Rock N Roll Star’, the band included the likes of ‘Lyla’, ‘Slide Away’, ‘Supersonic’ and ‘Wonderwall’ in the set along with new songs ‘The Shock of The Lightening’, ‘Ain’t Got Nothin”, ‘To Be Where There’s Life’ and ‘Falling Down’ among others.


Noel Gallagher also performed an acoustic version of ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ that you can watch fan footage of below.

‘The Masterplan’, ‘Champagne Supernova’ and ‘Cigarettes And Alcohol’ also featured.

Closing the show by returning to their traditional final song, a cover of The Beatles‘I Am The Walrus’, Noel introduced the crowd to new drummer Chris Sharrock, who was playing his first full gig for the band.

However Gallagher jokingly warned the audience not to get used to the new man behind the kit because Oasis were “trying to break Spinal Tap‘s record” for number of drummers.
