Oasis pay tribute to hurricane victims at gig

The band play their biggest Los Angeles show yet

Oasis paid tribute to victims of Hurricane Katrina last night as they played their biggest ever show in Los Angeles (September 12).

The Manchester outfit were performing for the first time at the city’s Hollywood Bowl , when midway into their set, frontman Liam Gallagher paused to pay tribute to one of the locales affected by the tragedy.

“The next one’s for the people in New Orleans ,” he said simply before the group launched into ‘Live Forever’ .

The band played a 90-minute set including the likes of ‘Lyla’, ‘Champagne Supernova’ , ‘Wonderwall’ , ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ and ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Star’ .

Before the group’s second to last song – ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ – guitarist Noel Gallagher took time to recognize Oasis reaching the landmark venue after over a decade of playing live the USA.

“It’s nice to get here after all the years of fucking about in nightclubs,” he laughed before dedicating the cover to “people of Mexican origin”.
