Oasis at Heaton Park, Saturday Review
06-06-09 by Nina Finlay
Well, as promised the weather was a tad crap for the Heaton Park gig yesterday but the grey skies and drizzle didn’t dampen anyones spirits. As expected the place was strewn full of `Liam’ wannabes and worse…I won’t go any further than that, I’m sure you’re imaginations can piece the rest together.
Oasis arrived on stage after a tremendous warm up from Kasabian. The visuals were fantastic, a colourful combination providing an impressive back drop for our favourite Northern brothers. Liam, stance and stares at the ready, kicked the show off with `Rock and Roll’ star which saw the crowd erupt and the mood and energy of the 70,000 concert goers lift off and remain that way for the entirety of the hour and a half set. They played a plethora of songs including Masterplan, Lyla, Cigarettes & Alcohol and Wonderwall all receiving a spectacularly welcoming reception. Noel was his usual witty self between tracks at one point asking `did any of you lot come the other night and ask for your money back?` followed with `tight c*nts‘.
Given the problems that they incurred on the first night of the Manchester Heaton Park gigs I did worry that we would have some of the same, I needn‘t have worried although the wind was quite ferrocious at one point and did carry the sound from the speakers somewhat.
If you haven’t seen them live I’d strongly recommend you try and see them at an outdoor gig if you can, a big noise and big band like this can be stifled in an indoor venue. To sum it up top gig and top show provided by the Gallagher brothers once again, nice one lads.
