Oasis Concert DVD

5 out of 5 stars

I was at this gig, i was 17, my first ever concert. Oasis! With two new members, Gem Archer on 2nd guitar and Andy Bell playing bass, joining Alan White, Noel and Liam for the first of two, scheduled to be the final ever concerts at wembley stadium.

To paint a picture, 70000 ppl, three bands (Doves and Happy Mondays in support) and an amazing day had by all…except the two girls that get there very late – very funny, watch the extra documentaries!!

If you're looking at this then you probably know all the songs. This wasn't THE best ever performance of the tracks but it was oasis on form with a point to prove, and did they prove it. They rock with the best of them and they are THE band of the ppl.

From the moment fuckin in the bushes hit we knew the lads were comin!! The anticipation, the wait was over! Liam: "good evening Manchester" – irony only oasis fans will allow themselves to understand.

The new songs off Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants are met with the same wide grins, cheers and 70000 strong vocals as the classics you all know and love. Supersonic; check, Wonderwall; check, Don't Look Back In Anger; check, the list goes on. My favourite on the night – too hard, but the psychedelic Gas Panic is up there.

If you like oasis – you probably own this – you should do…get yer mates round have a few beers and turn it up loud!! If you look close you never see me, but i'm in there!!

I'll never forget Noel's last comment prior to the final track on the night: "Good night, God bless, safe journey home, Rock N' Roll Star, everyone of ya!" Am i sensitive or am i right to think fondly of that moment? Who knows it was a great concert – no question. Love em or hate them – oasis know how to put on a show!!

I'll give it 5 stars – biased, yes, but the performance, if not the occasion in my view is better than Knebworth, and i have the video of that too!!. Buy it yourself and you decide.
