Oasis - the bad boys of rock - swaggered onto stage in front of thousands of diehard fans at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena last night.
A storming crowd of 38,000 waved their hands in the air as they welcomed Oasis to the packed out city stadium. Revellers chanted their loud and rowdy anthems, including Cigarettes and Alcohol, Roll With It and Wonderwall.
Liam rattled his tambourine and brother Noel raised his guitar as they played Rock ‘n’ Roll Star to an ocean of fans.
They were supported by the city’s most successful rock band, The Enemy, who excited crowds as they belted out tracks like It’s Not OK and This Song.
Oasis, who have already played in their home city of Manchester last month, shot to fame in the 90s selling more than 60 million albums across the world.
It was the only Midlands date on the tour of the UK and was the fastest selling gig in the Ricoh’s history with 20,000 tickets snapped up within its first two hours of sales.
John Corden, aged 62, of Bulkington, in Bedworth, was joined by his nephew David, aged 21.
He praised the band’s rebellious antics on stage. “They’re brilliant. I’ve listened to them for years. They’ve still got it – they’re still selling records and filling stadiums.
“Their arrogance is their appeal and the confidence in their own ability is what makes them great. A lot of bands have it but these guys are very cool about it.
“I came to see The Enemy as much as I did for Oasis – it’s good that we can celebrate two of our favourite bands in one place really.”
Susan Dixon, aged 41, was with her son, Glen, aged 24, and daughter, Toni, aged 19.
Glen said: “It’s was an electric atmosphere. I absolutely love Oasis – it’s makes a change for them to be in the city.
"My favourite tracks of all time is Champagne Supernova – it’s a quality song and sounds even better live.
They’re a great band.”
Electrician John Cave, aged 26, of Rugby, and his close friends are dedicated fans who grew up listening to the band since they were young.
He said: “I followed them since I was 11 years old and I’ve never seen them before. I’ve seen lost of other music groups but they don’t compare to Oasis.”
His best mate, Joe Flanagan, aged 24, said: “I saw them in Heaton and they were great. They are the best band ever because with every song it holds a memory.
“They define a generation - that’s why they’re so popular.
"They triumph in Britain and I finally got to see them in Coventry. It was the best show that I’ve seen them play.”
Chief executive of the Ricoh, Daniel Gidney said: “This was fantastic for us. They are one of the biggest bands in British history.
“We capable of catering for different tastes. Oasis are a modern rock band and we were delighted to have them at the Ricoh.
“The profile of the event was clearly different to other concerts we’ve held.
"There are more blokes drinking beer but we had more stewards on site.”
Oasis are set to play at the Wembley Stadium tomorrow, July 10 and 12.
This Thursday marks the first of 3 massive dates at Wembley Stadium London for the band.
