You may recall the Oasis concert that had a few set backs at Heaton Park, whereafter Oasis offered fans a ticker refund. This article suggests 20,000 people took up the offer.


Oasis star Noel Gallagher revealed around 20,000 "cheeky" people asked for their money back after their Heaton Park show was hit by technical problems.

The band were twice forced to leave the stage when they played the homecoming gig earlier this month due to a power fault.

The band went on to play a full set but as a gesture of goodwill concertgoers were offered their ticket money back.

The guitarist said: "It seems that around 20,000 of you have asked for a refund from that night at Heaton Park. 20,000! So you were genuinely disappointed?

"I don't recall seeing a 20,000 gap in the crowd. Tsk... some people," he wrote on his online blog.

Around 70,000 people saw the band abandon their opening track only for them to return and be driven off once more when they tried the second song.

At the time, Gallagher told fans: "We're not getting paid for this so buy a t-shirt on the way out. Credit crunch and that, keep my kids in sweets. Kind of regret offering you your money back now."
