Oasis Gig Ends In Chaos As Band Forced Off Stage

Oasis were forced to abandon their opening home coming gig at Heaton Park in Manchester (June 4) after technical difficulties and an 11pm time curfew. They were playing 'Rock 'N' Roll Star' at the start of their set around 9pm, when sound problems forced them to stop and leave the stage. Crowds were soon booing, according to NME magazine, and when Oasis returned to play 'Lyla' - problems intensified.

A generator failure had technicians frantically working to solve the fault but smoke was seen coming out of the equipment. After 40 minutes the set list could continue with an apology saying, "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." As reported earlier, The Enemy had pulled out of the gig due to food poisoning. Both bands will be back in Manchester on Saturday (June 6) and Sunday (June 7).
