The band acknowledge the Scousers' sensational Champions League victory...
OASIS celebrated LIVERPOOL FC’s incredible CHAMPIONS LEAGUE victory at an intimate LONDON gig last night (May 25).
The band didn’t come on stage at the Coronet until the match between Liverpool and AC Milan had been shown on a giant screen, in front of thousands of drunken fans.
Instead of coming on to their traditional intro tape of ‘Fuckin’ In The Bushes’, the band came on to Liverpool’s anthem ’You’ll Never Walk Alone’, bathed in red light.
Speaking recently about the show, Noel Gallagher explained: “The gig was sold out and I said, ‘Instead of getting a support band, why don’t we get a big screen and stick it in the middle of the stage so everyone can watch the game. Then we’ll play after the game and get a late curfew’. They all went for it, so we hired a big cinema thing.”
Liam Gallagher dedicated ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ to the Italian fans. AC Milan were 3-0 up at half-time, but ended losing on penalties 3-2 after extra time after Liverpool came back to draw 3-3.
