Are they putting something in the water in Manchester? As if the rivalry between United and City wasn't fierce enough now the local musos are at it - with Take That rattling their sabres at Oasis.
Both bands are to play their hometown next summer - and Take That reckon their concert will blow away anything the Gallagher brothers can come up with.
Chatting in the penthouse suite of London's Soho hotel, Howard told us: "There's a totally different energy to the two shows.
"We're all about the spectacle, putting on an amazing show for the fans, with lots of high energy and dancing. Oasis are great... if you just want to see a band stand still and sing.
"They have a different kind of energy."
Keeping the peace, Mark added hastily: "It's like all the boys coming home.
"I really want to go and see Oasis but if the credit crunch makes people choose one or the other, then come and see us."
Gary, Mark, Jason and Howard kick off their Circus tour in Sunderland on June 6. They will perform in Manchester mere days after Oasis have plugged in their amps there.
Tickets go on sale on Friday at 9am from www.gigsandtours.com for what they promise will be the greatest show on earth. Over to you, Noel and Liam...
