Noel Gallagher has announced he is quitting rock band Oasis because he can no longer work with his brother Liam.

Noel, the founding member of the band, made the statement on the band's website. He said a series of rows with his brother led to the decision.

The guitarist said: "It's with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight.

"People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer."

"Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan," he added.

'Gutted'

Earlier it was announced the band had cancelled their second gig in the space of a week because of "an altercation within the band".

They had been expected to play the Rock en Seine festival in Paris, but fans at the concert were told by the support band that Oasis would not be performing.

Many of the crowd thought it was a joke - until screens at either side of the stage showed the message "as a result of an altercation within the band, the Oasis gig has been cancelled".

Oasis fans used Twitter to respond to the news that lead guitarist Noel had quit.

'Worst day ever'

PsychedelicAdam posted: "Noel Gallagher leaves Oasis? Gutted, no more Oasis then I guess, they were one of my favourite bands."

Wolvolass said: "I feel sick, sooo many good memories and gigs seeing Oasis over the years."

MattGriffin added: "This is the worst day ever."

On Sunday the band had also cancelled their headline slot at the V Festival in Essex after Liam was diagnosed with viral laryngitis.

They performed in Stafford on Saturday but the singer was advised by doctors not to perform again.

I think it will be good for Noel, give him the freedom a writer needs. Maybe the best is yet to come.

Shame. Oasis were an excellent band. great songs,charismatic vocals and pure 'rock and roll' lifestyles. I'll never forget seeing a picture of Noel Gallagher on the wall of the Capital Radio cafe in Leicester Sq some years ago. His eyes were like dinner plates. He was completely off his face!! A classic shot that said it all really :)

Nothing more than a publicity stunt. I would have thought after 18 years the public would have got wise to this.

Oasis were the sound of a generation, THE band of the 1990's. I think this is the end that has been a long time coming, we shall see.

I think it's best to agree by disagreeing on that point.


Gallagher (Noel) went into the band with the claim he was going to make them famous via the publicity.

'Noel approached the group about joining with the proviso that he would become the band's sole songwriter and leader, and that they would commit to an earnest pursuit of commercial success'.


So much for becoming successful through the musical talent of a band....

Well as a 'band' they were rubbish. Noel's songwriting and Liam's Manc drawl vocals made it. Anyone else could have been on bass and drums.

IMHO of course :)

For me Oasis finished when 'Bones' left, just wasn't the same.

Another massive bout of indifference here. I agree with Robs. *shrugs shoulders*
A few good hits, but loathesome little oiks.

Thanks very much for those clips Martyn. :thumb: I must admit I liked some of their stuff,some of their stuff are haunting songs! I always thought that they *pinched* alot of beatlesque type stuff. one clip there in the vid when they are walking on a zebra crossing :hmmm: Very Abbey Road. Yes I know they were ardent fans of FF

I must say that the surprising thing about the news was the realisation that Oasis were still playing. What have they been doing the last, say, 13 years?
