    I am so tired of this spoiled group. I used to be a really big fan, but for the first time in my life, a band's offstage/onstage antics have irritated me so much that it has just ruined their music. Blaming your voice going out on the long flight to florida is so lame.

    I saw a show earlier this year where the woman flew from Perth, Australia to the east coast of the usa, got off the plane, had 90 minutes to get from the airport to the venue until showtime. She arrived about 45 minutes prior to the show starting, walked on stage and delivered one of the best concerts I've ever seen in my life. This woman was exhausted, she had been in the air for well over 20 hours, got NO REST and didn't complain, she was happy to play for her fans.

    Liam could learn a thing or two about performing from people like that. It might also help his voice if he stopped yelling and fighting so much with his brother.

    That sucks. I hope they hold on until Monday morning. Then they can breakup every 5 mins.

    It wasn't Kylie Minogue, it was the brilliant Wu Man:

    Slightly off topic, and not to say Liam's not a sh!thead, but no one should be compared to the Aussies when it comes to handling the rigors of travel. I've worked with Australian academics and business people who can fly for 20 hours and slip right into a new schedule without needing so much as a nap. And (back to music) when I was in college, no one could match the Hoodoo Gurus, who on at least two separate occasions played over 300 shows in the US during two 10-month periods. The Road Warrior is a way of life as well as a post-apocolyptic movie for those people.

    Good luck to those of you how have tickets.

    Sorry to be off topic once more, but that woman was from the USA, she just happened to be in Australia coming back to the USA. I'm just saying she isn't a whiner, whereas Liam is.

    Got it. Thanks.

    So I gather that no one, not even for the sake of argument, is going to argue that Liam Gallagher is NOT a whiner?

    I think even that is beyond the scope of the most avid devil's advocates on bigsoccer.

    I guess my Oasis-slagging-off services are not needed this time - you guys are doing a fine job without me.

    That and the fact that Oasis fans hear this time and time again. People are going to think what they want to think, regardless. Why argue?

    The tour will continue with or without Liam.
    Noel will take over the lead vocals .
    Oasis survived when Noel walked out of the European tour a couple of years back.
    this kind of thing always happens with Oasis .Either Liam or Noel walks out and the others continue.
    If liam and noel walked then you haven't got a band ,but as long as there is one of them the show continues.

    Oasis played a few European shows two years ago after Noel walked off their tour. They just hired a replacement guitarist.

    Without Liam I could handle, without Noel would be unbearable. I would actually ask for my money back if Noel was a no show.

    Cool. Look for Michael & I, we'll be the guys keeping the ladies off of M-Flip as he does his one-man 24 Hour Party People imitation, performing the parts of Bez, Ian Brown, and Bonehead all at once while wearing a "Reni" hat. Listen for his calls of "I'm mad for it!"...

    Anybody who's looking to upgrade their Beacon tickets might want to check TicketMonster this week. Here's what you can get for Wednesday:

    SECTION ORCH, ROW H, SEATS 14 TO 16
    ORCHESTRA
    PRICE LEVEL 1

    They don't suck. First night has row L seats. Roseland is still sold out.

    It was a hit and run, the police are looking for four blokes in a mini cooper who were seen driving away from the crash scene with manic expressions on their faces.

    Eye witnesses said that they heard the driver shout "Wankers" at the point of impact and that world music could be heard blasting out of the car stereo.
