Part of the band's fee is being with held because they played the shows without Noel Gallagher...

Oasis have entered into a legal dispute with the promoters of two German festivals, who are withholding part of the band’s fee after they performed shows without guitarist Noel Gallagher.

According to a press statement released to NME.COM by Oasis‘ management company Ignition Friday (October 27), the dispute with German concert promoters MLK relates to the fact Oasis played the gigs last summer, like much of the end of their world tour, without guitarist Noel Gallagher, who quit all overseas touring in May. The band were in the middle of a world tour to promote their ‘Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants’ album. He was replaced on the shows by Matt Deighton, who had previously worked with Paul Weller. MLK believe Oasis were in breach of contract.

A spokesperson for Oasis said: “The band played a full set at both festivals…it is very common for bands to replace members for any number of reasons.”
