The End Of Oasis...Or Is It ?
British rock group Oasis cancelled a scheduled appearance at a music festival near Paris at the last minute on Friday after a fight between Noel and Liam Gallagher, organisers said.
The management of the Rock en Seine festival claimed that the group "no longer exists" after the alleged fight between its founding members, but there was no announcement from the band on their official website.
Several minutes before they were due to take to the stage in Saint-Cloud on Friday, a spokesman for the organisers announced to the crowd that Liam and his brother "had a fight backstage."
The spokesman added: "The group no longer exists. They will not play tonight and they are cancelling the rest of their European tour."
Oasis also pulled out of a concert last Sunday at the V Festival in Britain, with organisers saying Liam Gallagher had lost his voice, but there were rumours that he and his brother were having the latest in a string of feuds.
On Monday, Liam used his Twitter feed to rubbish rumours that the band were splitting up.
Oasis to split? Definitely... maybe
Oasis have cancelled their second gig in the space of a week because of "an altercation within the band", it was announced.
They were expected to play the Rock en Seine festival in Paris but the crowd were told by Bloc Party, who were due to perform before Oasis, the Manchester band would not be taking the stage.
Many of the crowd thought it was a joke - until the big screens at either side of the main stage showed the message "As a result of an altercation within the band, the Oasis gig has been cancelled".
