The band will close 2005 with some big gigs...

OASIS will play their final shows of the year in Ireland at Christmas.

The band play Belfast Odyssey Arena on December 18, three years after they last visited the city.

And following their sell-out summer show at the Dublin Marley Park, the Britpop veterans return to the Irish capital on Wednesday 21 December for a gig at The Point Depot.

Currently enjoying comeback success with new album ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’, Liam Gallagher said: “I couldn’t think of a better place to end a year of touring than Dublin, it’ll be a great night.”

Tickets go on sale this Saturday (July 23) at 9am and are available from oasisinet.com.
