Noel Gallagher responds after two power cuts at Heaton Park
Oasis have proffered full refunds for fans who attended their Manchester homecoming gig in Heaton park on Thursday (June 4).
The gig, part of the band’s Dig Out Your Soul world tour, was the first of three nights at the park, with two more 70, 000 capacity shows on June 6 and 7.
Oasis suffered two power cuts, one at the very start during “Rock N Roll Star” which resulted in the band having to leave the stage for nearly 40 minutes.
Apologising on their return to continue the show, Liam Gallagher said to fans, who had paid £45 for their tickets: “Really sorry about that, this is a free gig now. Everyone will get a refund.”
Noel Gallagher added: “The curfew’s 11, but we’ll play ’til they kick us off. Keep your ticket and you’ll get your money back.”
Possibbly realising the mathematics of his offer, Noel later back-peddled slightly, saying: “If you’re getting your mum and dad to pick you up outside afterwards, tell we’re not leaving til 2am. Kind of regret offering you your money back now. Apply for it back if you wanna be a c***, we do our best for you.”
Oasis’ first night at Heaton Park (June 4) setlist was:
‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Star’
‘The Shock Of The Lightning’
‘Roll With It’
