OASIS – Rock & Roll History in Maine Road, Manchester 20 Years Ago…



Twenty years ago – on April 27 & 28, 1996 – OASIS (two years after I travelled to London
to see them live for the first time in London in a small venue) played two spectacular sell-out gigs at MAINE ROAD, the (then) stadium of their beloved MANCHESTER CITY football team, before 2 x 40.000 ecstatic fans. Two legendary mammoth events of which the first one was immortalized on a millions selling Video Tape (damn, where did I put my copy?)…

That special-for-the-occasion guitar…

The year before (October 3, 1995) they released their 2nd and worldwide breakthrough album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? These were their first stadium performances, pretty historical happenings. To celebrate I picked a clip of the first night – because of some great shots of the atmosphere & the euphoric crowd, the great brothers vocals
and a playful Liam) with the explosive intro THE SWAMP and the awesome ACQUIESCE. Brilliant and unforgettable rock and roll moments!…
