OASIS will undertake their biggest ever tour of open air venues in the UK and Ireland next summer.
It includes two dates at the iconic new Wembley Stadium as well as the promised homecoming shows over two nights in Manchester’s Heaton Park. The tour will also see the band’s first ever visit to Sunderland’s Stadium of Light, a welcome return to both Murrayfield and Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium and their first headline performance at Ireland’s Slane Castle.

Oasis will be joined on all the UK dates by special guests Kasabian and The Enemy.
Tickets for all shows will go on sale Friday, 24th October at 10am through www.oasisinet.com, the Oasis Lo-Call 24-hr hotline, 0844 412 4638 and all usual ticket outlets.
These will be the band’s first shows at the new Wembley Stadium, having filmed their acclaimed live DVD ‘Familiar to Millions’ at the old venue in 2000. The Manchester dates at Heaton Park coincide with the centenary of the first music event in the park, when a gramophone recording of the Italian opera singer Enrico Caruso attracted 40,000 to the beautiful Manchester City Council owned family park.
The band are presently on a sold out tour of the UK, (which includes two nights at Wembley Arena) which saw all 180,000 tickets sell out as quickly as phone lines and internet sites could process applications.
