Oasis Banned From China?

British rockers Oasis have cancelled their dates in China as it appears the Chinese authorities would have banned them because of claims that Noel Gallagher has links to Tibet. The Chinese would be eager to avoid another high profile artist making a public statement on stage, following Bjork much publicised shouting of "Tibet!" at the end of her concert in Shanghai.

Noel and Liam are not the sort of rock stars who don't toe the political line and have spoken out very honestly over the years, so it is likely the band would have cancelled or boycotted China once restrictions were placed upon them. Two dates were scheduled for Beijing's Capital Arena on April 3 and the Shanghai Grand Stage on April 5 to promote the latest Oasis album 'Dig Out Your Soul'.

Oasis will be here in the UK as part of their world tour with The Enemy supporting and Oasis picked up Best British Band last week at the NME Awards. - for the latest news on The Enemy
