Statement From The Enemy Regarding Oasis Support Tour
Forced to cancel opening night of Oasis support tour due to illness; all remaining dates due to go ahead as scheduled
The Enemy have been forced to cancel tonight’s opening show of their tour as support to Oasis at Manchester’s Heaton Park. Vocalist / guitarist Tom Clarke is suffering from chronic food poisoning and has been advised to recuperate for forty-eight hours in order to recover as quickly as possible.
Tom wishes to apologise to everyone that was looking forward to the show as much as he was.
Bassist Andy Hopkins, who will still be attending today’s show, commented, “Tom has contracted chronic food poisoning. He will be back for Saturday’s show as we all will as a band. We’re absolutely gutted about this and it will make us more determined to blow people’s heads off on Saturday. I’ll be having it down the front with all the Oasis fans this evening.”
The Reverend & The Makers have been added to tonight’s line-up as a last minute replacement for The Enemy.
The Enemy will play the remainder of the Oasis tour as originally scheduled. The tour runs as below:
6th – Manchester, Heaton Park
7th – Manchester, Heaton Park
10th – Sunderland, Stadium of Light
12th – Cardiff, Millennium Stadium

7th – Coventry, Ricoh Stadium
9th – London, Wembley Stadium
10th – London, Somerset House (headline show)

The band will also play a prestigious headline date at London’s Somerset House on July 10th ahead of V Festival dates in August. They will return to the road in November for a full UK headline tour that includes two nights at London’s Forum.
The Enemy’s next release will be the single ‘Sing When You’re In Love’ that will be issued on June 22nd. Released on a variety of physical and iTunes formats, bonus material includes the new song ‘Here Comes The One’ as well as interpretations of songs from Neil Young, Billy Bragg and The Noisettes.
