Another On This Day In Oasis History...














Below is a video of Noel Gallagher performing the first half of 'Wonderwall' at the Free Tibet concert in New York from June 7th 1997.

In March 2009 'Oasis' were banned from performing in China. The Chinese Government is said to have revoked the band's performance licences, and cancelled the two concerts they were to stage in Beijing and Shanghai in April 2009.

The promoters of the shows say that a decision to cancel them was taken after the Government realised that Noel Gallagher had appeared at a 'Free Tibet' benefit gig in the U.S. In 1997. "The Government deemed that the band are unsuitable to perform to their fans in the Chinese Republic."
