Back in June Manchester's heroes Oasis stopped by at Heaton Park to play 3 home coming concerts.
The 70'000 boozy fans in attendance for the first of the three nights saw the plug pulled on their Brit Rock darling's sound system after only one and a half songs.
Apparently a generator which juiced the massive sound system had exploded in a plume of black smoke back stage.
A visibly agitated Liam Gallagher showed up after over half an hour of down time and declared that the show was free now and vowed that fans would get their money back. Although the fault was rectified, and the band went on to perform an impressive set, approx 20'000 fans as it turned out took the bands offer.
A refund form and statement appeared on the official band site of Oasis which promised ticket holders who sent their valid ticket stub back their full ticket price refunded.
This week this official deadline will have come and gone and many fans are flooding fan sites and forums such as StopCryingYourHeartOut and *The Oasis Newsroom (*published by Live4ever) with the question "Where is my refund?"
Although most fans have received their "Bank of Burnage Cheques" (pictured above) it seems as though many have given up on any hope in receiving their cash back. It's a hot topic on the message boards as many supporters don't believe fans in attendance should have asked for their money back in the first place as the show went on and everyone there seemed to enjoy the sights and sounds of Manchester's finest.
We informed Oasis' Ignition management team earlier today about fans having problems getting a refund and they told us "They are looking into it."
The Devendra Banhart remix of '(Get Off Your) High Horse Lady' and the Liam Gallagher-penned 'I Believe In All' and 'The Boy With The Blues' are now available to buy on iTunes.
