Oasis was a British rock band that was active from 1991 to 2009 and was first formed with the line-up of Liam Gallagher on vocals, Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs on lead guitar, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan on bass and Tony McCarroll on drums. Liam's brother Noel Gallagher joined a year after they formed and played lead guitar while Paul Arthurs switched to rhythm guitar. The band was a huge success throughout the 1990s with their first three albums "Definitely Maybe", "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" and "Be Here Now" debuting at Number 1 on the UK albums chart and are known for songs like Supersonic, Stand By Me, Live Forever, Don't Look Back in Anger, Rock N' Roll Star, Roll With It and Wonderwall. In October 2001, the band went on a cross-country week-long tour to celebrate their 10th anniversary entitled "10 Years of Noise and Confusion[1]". The tour would also server as the last leg of the band's chaotic tour to support their fourth album "Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants" which was released in February 2000.

History[edit | edit source]

Unlike prior tours, the band performed in smaller venues on the tour since prior to the tour, they weren't able to perform in smaller venues due to their rising popularity worldwide brought on by the success of their first three albums "Definitely Maybe", "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" and "Be Here Now" and as a result, only performed in large venues like Earls Court, Maine Road and most famously Knebworth Park. The tour would also be the band's shortest at only six dates and at three venues (Shepherd's Bush Empire, Manchester Apollo[2] and the Barrowlands) and while it maybe the shortest in dates, they were the longest concerts at nearly two hours and the setlists had a mix of songs that were performed on both the Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants tour and the Tour of Brotherly Love, songs that hadn't been performed since at least the (What's The Story) Morning Glory? tour and two new songs from their yet-to-be released album "Heathen Chemistry"[3].

Availability[edit | edit source]

The October 13th gig at the Barrowlands in Glasgow was recorded and aired as a special entitled "Oasis: 10 Years of Noise and Confusion" on the now defunct[4] Sky Box Office the next day along with an interview with Noel and Liam. Despite the special being an exclusive to Sky Box Office, the special did air on several music channels in the UK at several unidentified dates. Only three songs from the concert were cut from the special, The Hindu Times, Live Forever and Hung In A Bad Place. The Hindi Times and Hung In A Bad Place were likely cut because they were new song, but the reason why Live Forever was cut is unknown. The song Columbia from the Barrowlands gig was included as a B-Side on the Heathen Chemistry single "Songbird" that was released in February 2003. With the song's appearance on the single, it's likely the band's label Big Brother Recordings is in possession of the full recording of the gig. But since the band's output during the 2000s have largely been overshadowed by their 1990s output, it's unlikely that the concert will ever resurface in full.
