Oasis forced to abandon Manchester Heaton Park stage

not only have the enemy been knocked off the bill until possibly sat and sunday and replaced with reverend and the makers.....this has happened!!

Oasis were forced to abandon the stage at their huge headline show at Manchester's Heaton Park tonight (June 4) due to technical difficulties.

At around 9pm (BST) the band began their set with 'Rock 'N' Roll Star', but the song was stopped due to sound problems.

The band headed off stage for around ten minutes to the sound of boos from the crowd.

They then returned and began to play 'Lyla' although that song was cut short, again due to sound troubles.

Liam and Noel Gallagher and co left the stage again, while a message appeared on the stage screens declaring that the problems would be fixed as soon as technical staff could sort them out.

The message explained that generator failure was causing the issues, while smoke could be seen emanating from the equipment.

It was since updated to say "Almost there!", suggesting that Oasis are set to return to the stage soon.

Oasis returned to the stage after around 40 minutes to successfully kick-start the set again with 'The Shock Of The Lightning' and 'Cigarettes And Alcohol', with the Gallaghers promising to give fans their money back.

"Really sorry about that," Liam Gallagher told the crowd. "This is a free gig now. Everyone will get a refund."

His brother Noel added: "The curfew's 11, but we'll play 'til they kick us off. Keep your ticket and you'll get your money back."

Later in the set, however, the logistics of the promised refunds seemed to trouble Noel. "We're not sure how its gonna work with getting the money back, he said before playing 'Half The World'. Be on a website or summat. We're not getting paid for this so buy a t-shirt on the way out. Credit crunch and that, keep my kids in sweets.

"If you're getting your mum and dad to pick you up outside afterwards, tell we're not leaving til 2am. Kind of regret offering you your money back now. Apply for it back if you wanna, we do our best for you."

The band played a 24-song set, ending with their customary cover of The Beatles' 'I Am The Walrus' at 11:20pm.

Oasis played:

'In The Bushes'
'Rock 'N' Roll Star'
'Lyla'
'The Shock Of The Lightning'
'Roll With It'
'Cigarettes And Alcohol'
'The Meaning Of Soul'

The band are currently still backstage.

God thats good of them!

Went to see take that in december 2007 at the MEN, was delayed nearly two hours cos of electrical problems. Problems being a fire behind the stage, no refund or anything! Typical lol

What happens to the people who bought off eBay? Surely the refund will go to the guy selling on eBay and not the person who went, as they ave proof of purchasing the tickets. I bet there'll be lots of ****** off people coming out of the gig tonight.

Ha, love the thought process - offer refund, play songs, think about it.

Get concerned as to how you'll refund, play songs, think some more.

Realise its gonna be messy and expensive refunding everyone, play songs, try abusive reverse psychology on crowd and hope they don't pursue refund :lol:


Better be sorted for Sunday when I go!!

Liam was also supposed have said "last time I was here with this many people was in 1982 to see the Pope" and he then proceeded to dedicate a song to Pope Benedict .

Apparently he's getting a right mauling on the Rangers fans forums. Could possibly be revenge for them trashing his hometown city centre last year.

:lol:

Oasis' Liam Gallagher has apologised to fans for last night's (June 4) show at Manchester's Heaton Park, which saw the band leave the stage twice due to technical difficulties.

The rockers were offstage for a total of around 40 minutes following a stuttering start to the 70,000-capacity gig due to a generator failure.

They offered refunds to fans after returning to complete a full 23-song set.

Sending a message to fans through his Twitter page, the singer offered his apologies to those who attended the show.

"On behalf of Oasis, I'd like to give my sincere apologies to the fans about tonight's gig," he wrote. "Thanks for sticking with us, live forever..."

Oasis are set to return to Heaton Park to perform tomorrow (June 6) then again on Sunday (7).

Did they tear off the side of the ticket at the venue or did they scan it? I have an unused ticket that I want to send in.
