The Millennium Stadium has confirmed its status as the premier venue of choice for the world’s top performing acts with Oasis announcing their return after a sell-out performance in 2005.

The Manchester-based band will kick off the Millennium Stadium’s 2009 summer season of events on Friday 12 June, with support acts Kasabian and The Enemy.

The confirmation of Oasis’s concert coincides with the 10th anniversary of the stadium hosting headlining acts which have included some of the biggest names in rock – including the Rolling Stones, Madonna (twice), The Police, Tina Turner, Robbie Williams, Manic Street Preachers, Stereophonics (twice) and Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

The announcement of Oasis follows hot on the heels of a fantastic 2008 season which saw the multi-purpose venue host the start of Madonna’s World tour, and appearances by Bruce Springsteen and Neil Diamond.

The Millennium Stadium has quickly established itself as the venue of choice for both fans and performers alike where the retractable roof and removable pitch make it a unique and unrivalled arena.

Millennium Stadium Head of Marketing, Gwyn Dolphin, explained: “The hotly anticipated return of Oasis to the Millennium Stadium this summer will be the first concert of our 10th anniversary year and, looking back at their sell-out ‘Noise and Confusion’ tour visit in 2005, we expect another fantastic night’s entertainment.

“The biggest acts in world music continue to recognise the Millennium Stadium as a must-play venue because of our unique city centre location, retractable roof and magnificent spectator experience.

“We are working hard to add even more exciting events to the calendar next summer.”
