Oasis will not be playing Glastonbury Festival 2009

October 19, 2008 drainu182 1

Noel Gallagher who never seems to shut up recently commented on Oasis and the Glastonbury Festival 2009. Apparently he doesn’t like the festival and that the band has never played well at Glastonbury (same thing can be said for a lot of venues they’ve played).

“Glastonbury is great to be at but it’s not really good for people like me to play at because you don’t go on until 11 at night and all the people you’re with by that time are absolutely battered.”

Canada hates Oasis but loves The Foo (Virgin Fest 08)

This past weekend Richard Branson’s Virgin Fest (V Fest) hit Toronto, Canada with the Foo Fighters and Oasis headlining Saturday and Sunday respectively. While Saturday’s show rocked non-violenty, Sunday had far different results. Noel Gallager, Oasis’s guitarist, was attacked by a fan who pushed him to the ground which proves my point that Canada hates Oasis. Here are two videos of the incident as well as videos from the other bands (Bloc Party, MGMT, Against Me!).
