Oasis roll out the hits at V in Staffordshire Liam Gallagher hails 'Biblical' crowd at Weston Park.
The Gallaghers blasted out an impressive set, avoiding the technical problems which beset some of their previous UK shows in the summer, as they performed one of their last gigs in Britain on their 'Dig Out Your Soul' tour.
The band were on fine form, sticking to exactly the same set they rolled out at the Camden Roundhouse last month, leading mass singalongs to 'Live Forever', 'Roll With It' and 'Cigarettes & Alcohol'.
Guitarist Noel Gallagher took over vocal duties early on with 'Waiting For The Rapture' and a stirring rendition of 'Wonderwall' B-side 'The Masterplan'.
As he introduced the track, he joked: "Good evening V Staffordshire. Have you had a good day? Someone just said no then."
Later he paid tribute to fans who had travelled up from his hometown as he launched into 'Half The World Away'.
"This next song is dedicated to anyone here from Manchester," he added. "All of you want to live and stay there."
The band only played three songs from their recent album 'Dig Out Your Soul', instead filling the 90-minute set with many of their greatest hits.
Much of the crowd were in fine voice, belting out all the words to 'Wonderwall'. But the biggest singalong was reserved for Don't Look Back In Anger' as Noel left the whole of the V Stage throng to sing the bulk of the track in unison.
His brother Liam, who was dressed in a long black Pretty Green raincoat, said very little throughout the show apart from at the very end when he declared: "This is the last song. You've been Biblical and we're out of here. I am the fucking walrus."
