Following the departure of Guigsy, Oasis are not to split. Liam and Noel have just announced at a press conference that they will be touring the UK in March 2000.
The pair were the only members of Oasis at the conference held at the Water Rats, the location of their first London gig.
They were in good spirits, joking with the crowd of assembled journalists and reporting that the split was amicable.
They said that Guigsy has left because – like Bonehead – he has a family to look after and touring would take him away from home for too long.
There are no plans for a replacement at present and they said that they had nobody in mind.
They added they called the conference in order to reassure fans about the future of Oasis.
