Oasis


Saturday July 9 & Sunday July 10, 2005
7pm, National Bowl, Milton Keynes

Oasis's star has fallen over the last couple of albums, plagued by derivative material and the usual personal problems faced by megalomaniacal rock stars. Two months ago, though, they did the smart thing and released a comprehensive DVD focusing on their brilliant and massively successful first album, Definitely Maybe, to remind fans of their power at their prime. It has sold well, showing that fans hadn't forgotten that string of three albums (Definitely Maybe, (What's the Story) Morning Glory?, and Be Here Now) which effectively aped 60's rock and put a unique spin on it to make Oasis the biggest English band of the mid 90's. Along with Blur and Pulp, they brought British music, specifically Brit-pop, to worldwide prominence.

The Mancuian quintet still have retained enough of a fan base, even through various line-up changes and mixed reactions to their last two studio albums (Standing on the Shoulders of Giants and Heathen Chemistry), to headline a show at the National Bowl, Milton Keynes in July. They have also announced two more stadium shows to follow, including a home show at Manchester and a show at the new rock scene hotbed of Glasgow.

Oasis has always been the Liam and Noel Gallagher show, but it has become even more so with the changes. Not that there's particularly a problem with that, as the battling brothers have managed to write many memorable songs. The question is whether past triumphs will be able to outshine their occasional onstage bickering. As their live album Familiar to Millions showed, no matter what happens, it is sure to be a rock n' roll spectacle.
