HISTORY – 27/28 April 1996 – Legendary OASIS Shows At Maine Road Manchester…

Six months after the release of their breakthrough masterwork album (WHAT’S THE STORY) MORNING GLORY? Manchester legends OASIS played two massive sold out concerts at MAINE ROAD MANCHESTER in the former football stadium of their beloved MANCHESTER CITY team. On 27 and 28 April 1996, the Gallaghers & Co wrote history. Joined by 80.000 (over the two days) the band had their dream come true by playing the ground of their Sky Blues squad. The two historic days were captured on film. The docu
‘…THERE AND THEN’ was released on video in October 1996 (still have my copy) and on DVD in 1997 (re-released in 2001). Supersonic stuff! Let’s look back in ecstasy.

Happy 50 To Classic Singer/Songwriter NOEL GALLAGHER…

29 May 2017

NOEL Thomas David GALLAGHER was born in Longsight, Manchester on 29 May 1967.
Fifty years ago, just 3 days before his all time favorite band THE BEATLES released their masterpiece album SGT. PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND. Being born so close
to that magical milestone day must be definitely, maybe one of the reasons why Noel
was, undoubtedly, destined to become a brilliant songwriter, to become a rock & roll
star, to become The Chief of the legendary OASIS and a great solo performer (better
than many expected) after the band split. On top of it he’s a hilarious one-liner expert
and always ready for an amusing, verbal fight with brother Liam. Happy 50 to the man
who gave us a full jukebox of timeless crackers we can sing along on top of our lungs.
Here are three of his unforgettable pearls…
