Oasis announce new London date

Band to be joined by choir for BBC Electric Prom

Oasis have announced a new London date which will see them collaborate with a full choir.

The band will play the Roundhouse in Camden on October 26 as part of the BBC Electric Proms, and will be joined onstage by the Crouch End Festival Chorus.

“We are doing the Electric Proms, and we’re doing it with the Crouch End Choir as well… there’s 50 odd of them…because some of the songs on the album have got a 50-piece choir on them,” explained Noel Gallagher. “So we’re going to do a night at the Proms with that lot, it should be good actually… Ennio Morricone uses them for his spaghetti western stuff in England, so I’m already looking forward to that because I’ve never played the Roundhouse and I’ve never done the Proms.”

Gallagher did make a cameo appearance at the event last year, joining The Coral onstage for one song.

Oasis tickets go on sale at 8:15am tomorrow (September 30) from bbc.co.uk/electricproms.
