Noel is forced to perform the encores...
OASIS UK tour has been dealt a blow after LIAM GALLAGHER walked offstage, complaining of a lost voice.
The band were playing the second of two nights at the Aberdeen Exhibition And Conference Centre last night (September 10), their first indoor gigs in Scotland since a show at Glasgow Barrowlands last October as part of their ‘Ten Years Of Noise And Confusion’ tour.
Towards the end of the band’s gig Liam lost his voice, leaving Noel and the rest of the band to fill out the set, which ended with the guitarist playing a solo version of ‘Wonderwall’.
Noel also performed the encores himself, telling fans Liam had a sore throat.
Liam’s throat problems mirror that of the opening show on the band’s US tour (August 2). At that date at the, 3,000 capacity Pompano Beach Amphitheater in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Liam announced his voice had gone “awry” during ‘Go Let It Out’, and walked off. Noel carried on with the show, performing some songs with the band and an eight-track acoustic set.
Oasis are due to play two hometown shows at the Manchester Old Trafford Cricket Ground with Richard Ashcroft (September 14-15) with this weekend. NME.COM can announce that the bill will also include the [/a] and [a].
Before that, they play another date in Scotland, at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange tomorrow night (September 12).
