Majority Of Oasis Concert Goers Might Ask For Refund
Seventy-seven percent of Oasis fans want a refund for the band's gig at Manchester' Heaton Park last night, which was tarnished by sound problems.
The band have promised to reimburse fans who weren't satisfied with the concert after sound problems caused their set to be delayed by 50 minutes.
Guitarist Noel Gallagher said: “Thank you very very much, this is a free gig - let's fucking have it! Anybody who has kept their ticket will get a full refund."
A Gigwise survey, which received 1175 votes, found 77% of fans said they planned to claim for a refund, while 23% were satisfied with the band's performance.
If each fan was to claim for a refund for their £45 ticket, the concert would cost Oasis £3million.
Meanwhile, fans have contacted Gigwise throughout the day to offer their feedback on the show, which marked the opening night of Oasis' UK tour.
A number of fans have claimed the concert was spoiled, not by sound problems, but fights that broke out within the crowd.
Harry the Goat said: “We walked out as fights were breaking out in the crowds, so yes 45 quid so I can then go on Sunday and watch them again please.”
Mags found the atmosphere within the crowd “scary [and] sinister”, while Crag said: “Was really good but like on the other post some idiots are pricks throwing urine and fighting.”
Oasis are due to perform at Heaton Park tomorrow and Sunday, before the tour continues at stadium venues across the country.
