      Behind the scenes of newest Oasis Video

    WATCH EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE OF THE MAKING OF OASIS' 'THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING IDLE'

    Rhys Ifans - when he's not prancing around in threadbare Y-fronts giving A-list Hollywood actresses an eyeful of his package, he's making video cameos for bad-lad buddies Oasis. 'The Importance Of Being Idle' features Ifans as a slightly unbalanced funeral director leading a funeral procession with a series of carefully choreographed dance moves.

    NME.COM have got the exclusive and hilarious behind the scenes filming of the new video, here for you to view. Click on the link below to catch what happens when we're not meant to be looking!

      Oasis break Ticket sale record in Belfast

    Even Liam Gallagher will be happy about this record. It was definitely the fastest sell-out at the Odyssey, with no maybe about it. Oasis smashed all previous Odyssey Arena records when all 10,000 tickets for their December 18 Belfast concert sold out in 15 minutes. This equates to an amazing 11 tickets per second and nearly 700 per minute.

    Following the sell-out, promoter Wonderland Promotions announced a second Oasis date for the following day, December 19. This has also sold out. The Oasis dates follow the release of the band's charttopping single Lyla and the back-to-form album Don't Believe The Truth.

    Commenting on the sell-out, Odyssey Arena Chief Executive, Nicky Dunn, said: "Oasis have been one of the most popular live acts for almost a decade.

    "However, to sell 10,000 tickets in 15 minutes is an unbelievable achievement both by the band and by the staff of our box-office and Ticketmaster." Belfast singer-songwriter Andy White reviewed the first gig on the Oasis UK tour, when they played a smallscale show at London's Astoria. It augurs well for the pre-Christmas Odyssey Arena dates: "For when you look round and see people holding each other and telling each other they are going to Live Forever into each others' open ears; when Liam promises love will conquer all and then stands at the front of the stage daring anyone in the front 32 rows to try to look as good as he does armed only with a tambourine and some dodgy deck shorts; when Noel picks up his acoustic for the first time and plays the first line of Yesterday, then launches into a new song with the word Yesterday in the first few lines - that is when you start to enter the world of Oasis." If you're one of the lucky ticket-holders, keep your fingers crossed for a Christmas Champagne Supernova and if you missed out on the Mancunian superstars, Don't Look Back in Anger, I hear you say!

    Prior to the Oasis concert the Odyssey Arena record sell-out was 25 minutes for Shania Twain in February 2004.

      Oasis crew impressed with Millennium Stadium

    The Millennium Stadium's step-up into the big league of rock venues took a major leap forward yesterday when it was announced Oasis are to headline a concert in front of an expected audience of 60,000.

    The band, one of the biggest in the world, were yesterday confirmed as the main act at Noise & Confusion 05, to be held at the stadium on December 10.

    Other major artists already secured to support them are Reading Festival headliners Foo Fighters along with Razorlight and The Coral, with many other bands expected to be added shortly.

    Oasis, managed by Ebbw Vale-born Marcus Russell, sent promoters to the venue to watch how it staged the massive U2 show last month.

    The band were so impressed with their report on the sound and setting, they agreed to disrupt a tour of Australia later this year to fly to Cardiff to play the one-off gig.

    A spokesperson for the group, headed by the controversial Gallagher brothers, Noel and Liam, said, 'This is already a sensational line up, and a superb opportunity to stage an annual end-of-year music event in Europe's largest indoor venue.

    'It will involve a mouth- watering selection of established and up and coming live bands.'

    The group, who have scored massive worldwide hits with such tracks as Champagne Supernova, Rock and Roll Star, Wonderwall and Cigarettes and Alcohol, are the latest in a series of high-profile acts to perform at the stadium.

    Already this year the venue has played host to U2 and REM. Both gigs showed that the stadium's £1m investment in a 'short hall' facility this year is paying dividends.

    But its biggest draw came in January, when a concert to raise money for people left devastated by the Boxing Day tsunami was watched by millions.

    Stadium boss Paul Sergeant said it would be 'daft' not to acknowledge the positive press which accompanied the Tsunami Relief Concert which raised more than £1m.

    The show featured short performances from acts as diverse as Charlotte Church, Manic Street Preachers, Eric Clapton and Lulu.

    Mr Sergeant said, 'It would be daft to say that we didn't get any benefit out of the tsunami gig.

    'Of course we did, but that's not why we did it.

    'But that did help put our name out there and since then we've been talking to lots and lots of promoters about bringing more big-name acts to Cardiff.'

    Mr Sergeant revealed that he had been in negotiations with promoters of the Oasis concert 'for a few months'.

    'When U2 were here a lot of the great and the good from the music industry came along and liked what they saw of the venue.

    'Among them were promoters for Oasis who went back to the lads and told them this would be a great venue for them as we have a roof and they can play with it shut if they want.

    'That's basically how it happened.

    'Oasis are a huge band and the acts which are supporting them are also big.

    'It would be nice to have them all play on separate days, but as a one-off gig for the people of Wales it's going to be a great day.'

    Mr Sergeant believes festival favourites such as The Coral and Razorlight will be suitably impressed with the venue and return to play, albeit to smaller crowds.

    'After the tsunami gig we made a £1m investment in creating a tailor-made arena space for bands at the stadium,' he added.

    'REM were the first band to appear at the new-look 'short hall' in the stadium, which features a full lighting rig and modular stage.

    'We can scale it down to hold 12,000 or make it bigger so that 46,500 can come in.

    'But we don't need that with Oasis - they'll play to at least a 60,000 capacity.'

    Rumours also abound that other huge stars are set to book the arena for future gigs, but the general manager refused to be drawn on speculation in the rock world.

    'I can't tell you who's coming yet as we're always in talks with promoters and more often than not we don't know which acts or bands they're representing.

    'But there are no other biggies in the pipeline. There are so many rumours going around, saying people like Robbie Williams, Madonna, Pink Floyd and Bruce Springsteen are coming, but I honestly don't know.'

    A spokesperson for the event said: "This is already a sensational line-up, and a superb opportunity to stage an annual end of year event in Europe's largest indoor venue. It will involve a mouth-watering selection of established and up-and-coming live bands."

      Liam to wed Nicole

    Oasis singer Liam Gallagher is set to tie the knot with fiance Nicole Appleton after five years together, it has been reported.

    The rock and roll star and the ex All Saint plan to exchange their vows at a low key ceremony in Scotland this winter. Invitations are being sent out to close friends and family already.

    The Oasis frontman, who reckons he's turned to God, has booked a jazz band and pianist to play on his big day.

    An insider said: "Fire eaters have been booked and there will be a bouncy castle for the kids".

    Liam, 32 and Nicole, 30, have a four-year-old son Gene. It is thought he will be pageboy on the big day.

      Tamer Oasis wash away the lager lout image

    It was the transformation to beat all transformations over the weekend when Manchester's finest, Oasis performed a new - and very possibly - improved set, to a sell out crowd at Dublin's Marlay Park.

    Over 20,000 people flocked to the south Dublin venue to see the band perform for the first time in Ireland in two years.

    Long gone however, was the lager lout image and rowdy antics that epitomised the rock group in the 1990's, with a serene frontman Liam Gallagher sipping water from an Evian bottle rather than a pint of beer.

    And while the band may have been somewhat subdued it seemed the new toned down Oasis was still proving a hit with the fans.

    "Just look at the show they put on, it's much better than anything they used to do and the songs definitely sound better," said Frances Hogan from Rathfarnham.

    Saturday's balmy evening saw thousands of fans arrive at the park from early in the afternoon, in ample time to catch Irish support act Mundy and Coral before the main event.

    And while much of the start of the show was dedicated to new material, it was the 1990's hits such as 'Morning Glory', 'Champagne Supernova', 'Cigarettes and Alcohol' and 'Live Forever', that drew the loudest applause.

    "They were absolutely brilliant," said Wendy Crammond from Kent, England. "It was my first time seeing them in concert and the fact that there's still such a buzz in the crowd for them after all these years is amazing."

      N. Armstrong and The Thieves leave Oasis tour

    Aspiring British rockers NIC ARMSTRONG + THE THIEVES have been forced to scrap two dream dates with pals OASIS because they're tied to a US tour with THE BRAVERY.

    The group, who supported Oasis for shows in America earlier this year (05), were thrilled when fan LIAM GALLAGHER offered them summer dates in Newcastle, England before they realised they had other commitments.

    Guitarist GLYNN WEDGEWOOD says, "The Oasis guys were really gracious and when we played our final show with them in Philadelphia, NOEL (GALLAGHER) said, 'We might have something for you.' Then they offered us the Newcastle shows.

    "Unfortunately we were already booked for The Bravery tour in America. We were gutted because Oasis are great guys and we had a great time with them."

    And to make matters worse, the Thieves have to return to Toronto, Canada with The Bravery. The last time they performed there they were detained at the US/Canadian border and missed a show with Oasis in Detroit, Michigan.

    Wedgewood explains, "It was f**king ridiculous. They just f**ked with us. Everything was going so well and then our heads just f**king dropped. But they didn't have enough on us to prevent us from getting back into the States."

      Oais back to their best

    ROCK 'n' roll legends Oasis turned back time at their sensational show at Milton Keynes Bowl at the weekend.

    I have to say, after seeing a stroppy Liam walk off stage two years ago at The Birmingham National Indoor Arena, I was expecting another lethargic and disappointing performance.

    However it couldn’t have been more different.

    Under the beautiful summer evening sky Liam and Noel wowed the 60,000 crowd with a 90 minute set that mixed new tracks and old classics from their first two albums Definitely Maybe and (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?

    And amid the simplistic stage set (featuring some large video screens showing the band and clips from videos) and fantastic light-show, lead singer Liam pleased the fans by belting out favourites such as Don't Look Back In Anger, Wonderwall, Rock 'n' Roll Star and Live Forever.

    He looked sophisticated in a pinstripe jacket and floppy white hat, while older brother Noel was dressed-down in a khaki jacket and T-shirt.

    Noel, also appeared to be in a joking mood, dedicating their new single The Importance Of Being Idle to Pete Doherty’s Babyshambles, who were axed from the gig after not turning up for a supporting spot in Southampton last week.

    He impressed with his high-pitch singing and his range of solo guitar skills which have improved considerably over the past few years.

    Liam also showed his softer side by dedicating Live Forever to the people of London who had been affected by the bombings last Thursday.

    The only two things I can fault about the gig was the omission of my personal favourite song, Supersonic.

    And with all the brilliant tracks Oasis have written over the years I do not know why they continue to end their gigs with a cover of The Who's My Generation.

    But after getting a full day's entertainment for just £32.50 it was just a couple of minor flaws in an otherwise unforgettable live performance.

    Support acts included the brilliant Zutons, The Redwalls, 22-20s and the slightly out-of-place Strange Machines.

      Liam is his 'own God'

    OASIS rocker LIAM GALLAGHER has slammed U2 star BONO's "boring" attempts to convert him to Christianity - insisting he is his own God.

    The WONDERWALL singer recently shattered his rock 'n' roll image by confessing he regularly goes to church to confess his sins, but his belief in himself rises above everything else.

    But Liam refuses to follow his sibling's religious beliefs, despite Bono's persistent efforts to show him the way of the Lord.

    He complains, "What can Bono tell me I don't know I'm not looking for guidance. There are days I believe and days I don't. And days I think, 'F**k the lot of them, I'm going for a Stella (beer).'

    "And when I've had ten of them, I'm f**king God. F**k Bono. I don't need his guidance. He'd talk a glass eye to sleep."

      Liam Gallagher Praises Rivers Cuomo

    Oasis singer calls Rivers Cuomo the Andy Warhol of music.

    The surly Oasis singer recently met the Weezer frontman and was impressed by his quiet manner.

    In an interview with ChartAttack.com, Gallagher had this to say about Cuomo: "Very strange man, him. He's my new favorite rock star. He freaked me out."

    Gallagher couldn't help noticing how different he and Cuomo are. "He's just the total opposite to me, man. He's just very timid. He's like Yoda or something," says Gallagher. "But I respect that. He's a top man. There's totally a place for him. He's like the Andy Warhol of...music...."

      Babyshambles dropped , Zutons new support band

    BABYSHAMBLES have been replaced by THE ZUTONS at OASIS’ gig this weekend in MILTON KEYNES.

    The band were due to play at the massive Milton Keynes Bowl this Saturday, but have been told they’re not needed after failing to show up for their first support slot in Southampton earlier this week (July 6).

    A statement issued to NME.COM reads: “The Zutons have replaced Babyshambles as the special guest at this Saturday’s Oasis show at Milton Keynes Bowl.
    ”A spokesperson for Oasis’ management said that Babyshambles failed to show without any warning or explanation at the Oasis Southampton show last Wednesday. As a result they don’t want to run the risk of disappointing fans with another no show for such an important event this Saturday. Other show times are not affected and the concert will continue as planned.”

      Bands slagging Bands

    Kasabian demonstrated their high regard for Oasis in an article published in the recent Glastonbury edition of NME magazine. Tom Meighan of Kasabian expressed his disapproval of 'bands slagging other bands', after being 'slagged' himself by The Killers. But when it comes to bands like Oasis, it's no longer a crime.

    "Picking fights if fucking crap...Oasis are the exception to the rule, though. They ruled the '90s. Nirvana led the grunge era in Britain then all of a sudden Britpop came along and there were those wonderful few years of Blur, Oasis, Supergrass, Radiohead... All these wonderful bands. Liam's just saying what he says and God bless. You can't fuck with that, man. Music was boring before they came along. They kicked it up the arse a bit and took the piss. So everyone should button it - except for Oasis."

      Liam has words for Noel and Chris Martin

    OASIS star LIAM GALLAGHER has attacked his brother NOEL and COLDPLAY frontman CHRIS MARTIN for persistently whining about their struggles as famous song-writers.

    The WONDERWALL rocker is furious Noel delayed their world tour by perfecting their latest album, DON'T BELIEVE THE TRUTH.

    And he advises his sibling and Martin - whose album X+Y was also delayed by writing difficulties - to spend less time complaining and more time writing if they want to meet their deadlines.

    When asked what Noel and Martin talk about, Liam sneered, "The struggles of being a writer in a big band. The struggles they had.

    "It's bulls**t. It's f**king easy. Get into the studio and f**king work, and if it don't work, try harder.

    "I should be halfway round the world on tour now, rocking, but we've taken ages to make this f**king record."

      Liam and Gem tell the truth to VH1

    Recognized in ladies toilets, unfamiliar with the Killers, and thrilled when beer is sold at concerts. Liam Gallagher speaks.


    Have Oasis finally got it right? Nearly a decade after they came within an inch of conquering America with "Wonderwall," Liam and Noel Gallagher are bigger than ever. The battling brothers sold out Madison Square Garden in 30 minutes, made a new album that's been hailed a return to form, and spawned a breed of bands that cite them as a key influence. To help promote 'Don't Believe the Truth' Liam and guitarist Gem Archer told VH1 about the difference between fans in England and the U.S., and the longevity of the sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll lifestyle.

    So Oasis has a brand new album. Why now?

    Liam: Mortgages to pay. Children, wives. Stuff like that.

    Not creative inspiration?

    Liam: Oh, no. None of that nonsense. We leave that for other bands.

    You were once said to exemplify the sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll lifestyle. Are you growing out of it?

    Liam: Well, I'm having sex, but it's not with anyone else except my missus, y'know what I mean? And drugs? I don't kind of go out of me way to get high, it just sorta happens. Rock 'n' roll ... I'm still immensely into it and turned on by it and passionate about it. That'll never change. If you haven't had sex and drugs before you join a rock 'n' roll band, you're a bit weird, if you ask me.

    What do you think of Coldplay usurping you on the top of the UK charts?

    Liam: I don't think anything of it. It was inevitable wasn't it? They're on their third album, and it's all going great for them. We'll see where they are in 12 years. Y'know what I mean? That's what it's about, isn't it?

    What's it like to have bands like the Killers cite you as an influence?

    Liam: I don't ever listen to the Killers. I suppose it's nice that people say nice things about you instead of saying bad things. But I wish they'd pay a little bit more attention.

    What's the strangest place you guys have been recognized?

    Liam: The ladies toilets.

    Describe Oasis fans.

    Liam: Very lucky. No, they're weird if you ask me, just weird. Coming to see us, man? Pretty weird, but nice. They're weird but in a good weird way, not in a bad weird way, not like psycho killers.

    Gem: They're actually good looking fans.

    Liam: A bit of style.

    Do you see a difference between your American fans and British fans?

    Liam: After last night I totally do. English fans are f*cking mad as far as I'm concerned. We did a gig last night in Chicago. They were into it and all that, but there was no beer in the venue!

    Gem: It was a dry venue, which is just unthinkable in England.

    Liam: You couldn't drink, so it was just everyone stood there - but they were loving it. In England our gigs are like a football match. That's just the way it is. Y'know what I mean? They still enjoy it.

    Who came up with the concept for the "Lila" video?

    Gem: I didn't. I hate videos. They're rubbish. They turn my head in.

    Liam: It wasn't like we were gonna try and do that rock 'n' roll circus with lots of freaky stuff [going on]. I think the guy got carried away and went a bit out of bounds. The band's bits were good, but there were lots of people on stilts and weird shit going on which is not us. But the bits where we're on stage are actually alright. We don't mind the videos as long as it's us playing live. When they try to get you to do a bit of acting, it's all over for me. I can't be bothered. If I was a kid watching a band, I wouldn't want to see loads of stupid actors in them. I just want to see them play. Like The Who videos and the Beatles you just see them playing. There was none of them loads of extras in and stilts and funny hats.

    So Liam, how do you write a song?

    Liam: My bit just sort of happens. I'm winging it, y'know? It all just sort of happens, but then I get stuck. That's when Gem comes in and he'll help. I need a little bit of help every now and then.

    Is there any song by someone else that you wish you'd written?

    Liam: Loads of 'em. "Man of the World" by Fleetwood Mac. That's Peter Green Fleetwood Mac, before the ladies joined. I wish I'd wrote that.

    When was the last time you won a fight?

    Liam: Good question. I don't think I've won any. I always get my head kicked in. I haven't had any fights to tell you the truth. It's just been chaos. [Though] verbal ones I win all the time.

    What's next for you guys? What's your goal?

    Liam: The goal is to keep making records and every now and again flirt with genius and make something else amazing. Next time we go on a shoot, we'll try and make something really truly magical and amazing that will blow everyone's mind, as well as ours. We might get there and we might not. It might just be a good record, but that's the goal - make a f*cking wild record.

      Oasis become comedians

    OASIS were left to entertain the crowd for 25 minutes after a barrier broke at the beginning of their show in MANCHESTER last night.The band stopped playing halfway through ‘Turn Up The Sun’ and guitarist Noel Gallagher announced to the crowd at the City of Manchester Stadium: “Alright look I’ve been told the barrier at the front has broken down so if everyone can just take one or two steps back we’ll start playing again. Otherwise we can’t go on with the show. If anybody does get injured though make sure they get a fucking t-shirt on the way out.”

    Frontman Liam Gallagher, who was dressed in a red leather jacket and a white cricket hat, then joked: “I bet you don’t get this at Live 8,” before the band were left standing on stage for the next 25 minutes while organisers fixed the problem.

    During that time Noel kept the audience amused by telling jokes and by urging the fans to sing: “Who the fuck are Man Utd?”

    Liam eventually butted in and shouted: “Let’s just get somebody in the crowd to get their tits out,” and for the next 10 minutes, constant cheers could be heard ringing around the ground as several girls beared their breasts on camera for the first time since Oasis’s ‘Standing On The Shoulder of Giants tour back in 2000.

    “Can you imagine what the people outside must be thinking with all this cheering going on and no music? They must be wondering what the fuck is going on,” joked Noel before he went on to say: “You wouldn’t get this at a Coldplay gig would you?”

    When the band were given the all clear, they kicked off their set with ‘Turn Up The Sun for the second time and went on to play several tracks off their new album ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’ including hit single ‘Lyla’, ‘The Importance Of Being Idle’ and ‘Guess God Thinks I’m Abel’.

    During the 90 minute concert they performed a similar set to their previous two shows but delighted an ecstatic crowd who sang back every word to classic hit singles ‘Wonderwall’, ‘Live Forever’, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ and b-side ‘Acquiesce’, which got its first outing on the tour.

    Earlier in the day footage of the historic Live 8 event was screened in the stadium and members of Oasis were spotted hanging around outside the executive suite behind the stage.

    Support came from The Redwalls, The Bees, 22-20s and The Coral.

    The setlist was:

    ‘Fuckin’ In the Bushes’
    ‘Turn Up The Sun’
    ‘Lyla’
    ‘Bring It On Down’
    ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory’
    ‘Cigarettes and Alcohol’
    ‘The Importance Of Being Idle’
    ‘Little By Little’
    ‘A Bell Will Ring’
    ‘Acquiesce’
    ‘Songbird’
    ‘Live Forever’
    ‘Mucky Fingers’
    ‘Wonderwall’
    ‘Champagne Supernova’
    ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Star’
    ‘Guess God Thinks I’m Abel’
    ‘The Meaning Of Soul’
    ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’
    ‘My Generation’

      Truth Behind Gallagher Brothers’ Conflict

    It has finally been revealed what Liam Gallagher said to big brother Noel, to make him quit their European tour in 2000.

    Noel has explained: “In Barcelona he questioned the legitimacy of my daughter Anais. Even now I remember being on him and punching him and splitting his lip and thinking ‘He never said that, did he?’”

    He continued to Q magazine: “I’ve never forgiven him because he’s never apologised. He’s at arm’s length until he says sorry for what he’s done.”

    As if we needed anymore confirmation that Liam is a total twat…

      Oasis at City of Manchester Stadium

    (06/30/05) 4 out of 5 *

    AS HOMECOMINGS go, it was loud, proud and heart-warming.

    The Burnage brothers Gallagher may have been away from their heartland for some time, but they made up for that with a show that proved last night that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

    In the build-up to our heroes arrival, the PA blasted out great Mancunian songs of yesteryear to little acknowledgement from the crowd.

    But when Liam Gallagher strutted on stage in a Reni-style hat, shades and gangster-style pinstripe suit, the sell-out crowd went wild at the slightest lift of his tambourine.

    The opening blast of Turn Up The Sun followed by chart topper Lyla and over-looked oldie Bring It On Down stoked the fires of the crowd perfectly.

    But it was the potent double of Morning Glory and Cigarettes And Alcohol that saw both crowd and band finally loosen up.

    The last time Oasis played at the home of their childhood heroes, Manchester City, it was 1996 and the venue was Maine Road.

    Highs and lows

    In the intervening nine years, both City and Oasis have had more than their fare share of highs and lows, hirings and firings, and in-house squabbling. Being a fan of either has been a frustrating roller-coaster.

    From the 1997-98 sinking feeling of Be Here Now and relegation to football’s third tier through to the current storming returns to form that have seen Premiership credibility matched by critical and commercial adulation afforded latest offering Don’t Believe The Truth, it has been eventful.

    Like their sky-blue idols, Oasis had no trouble filling the City of Manchester Stadium last night – this was the first of three sell-out shows.

    From the epic Little By Little to the heart-wrenching version of Live Forever that marked the show’s halfway point, this was a stadium master class in crowd pleasing, rabble-rousing rock.

    Come 10 pm, a heart-felt, emotionally raw version of Wonderwall was followed by an epic Champagne Supernova. Few bands could play such classics mid-set but Oasis have a back catalogue to do just that.

    So when we finally left after a crowd sing-along of Don’t Look Back In Anger and a powerhouse version of The Who’s My Generation, we had further evidence, if ever any was needed, that we were being re-visited by rock’s aristocracy.

      Liam : "Life's Mega"

    Despite delivering the tabloid press with a regular tirade of expletives like fuck, wanker and bugger; Liam Gallagher has announced that he has banned his children from swearing.

    According to today’s Sun, the Oasis frontman has described himself as "practically a fucking saint”…

    He said: "I won't have my kids getting lippy. No swearing. I don't smack either. I give them a dropped eyebrow look and then they know."

    Like big brother Noel, Liam has quit his party lifestyle for a healthy one…in an attempt to live forever: "I want to live until I'm 120 and be near me kids. I don't go out much now - I'm just loving my kids and eating healthy food. Life's mega."Oasis play two homecoming shows in Manchester this weekend; both gigs are sold out.
