Oasis Announce Split

Saturday, August 29, 2009

British rock band Oasis have announced they are to split.

The group was expected to play the Rock en Seine festival in Paris, France, Friday night — but the crowd were told by Bloc Party, who had been scheduled to perform before Oasis, that the Manchester rockers would not be taking to the stage.

They canceled the appearance because of “an altercation within the band”.

Noel Gallagher has since taken to the band’s official website to confirm the group — whose hits include She’s Electric and Roll With It — will go their separate ways.

“It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight,” Noel wrote. “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.”
