Noel Gallagher says he has quit Oasis – claiming he could not go on working with brother Liam “a day longer”.


Looking back in anger: Noel Gallagher goes his own way The announcement came just hours after the band cancelled their second gig in a week. In a statement on the band’s website, Noel said: “It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. “People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer. “Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan.”

The band were expected to perform at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris this evening. But the crowd were told by Bloc Party, who were due to perform before Oasis, the Manchester band would not be taking the stage.

Some fans thought it was a joke – until the big screens at either side of the stage displayed the message: “As a result of an altercation within the band, the Oasis gig has been cancelled.”

Ben Clover, 28, who travelled from south London for the festival, said: “There are a lot of British Oasis fans who have come over for this gig and they are very disappointed.”

Last weekend Oasis pulled out of the V Festival in Chelmsford, which they were meant to headline.

The band cancelled because front man Liam was struck down with viral laryngitis.



But their non-appearance sparked rumours they were set to split.

Earlier this month Liam revealed his turbulent relationship with Noel was so bad that they no longer speak, limiting their contact to exchanging insults on Twitter.

Liam told the NME: “He doesn’t like me and I don’t like him, that’s it.


“He hasn’t told me what he thinks of anything this year. We’ve got nothing to say to each other at the moment.”

Oasis fans have taken to Twitter to express their dismay at Noel’s departure.

PsychedelicAdam said: “Noel Gallagher leaves Oasis? Gutted, no more Oasis then I guess, they were one of my favourite bands.”

Wolvolass posted: “I feel sick, sooo many good memories and gigs seeing Oasis over the years.”

MattGriffin added: “This is the worst day ever”
