Booooooooooo

Authorities ban Oasis from playing in China | Music | guardian.co.uk


I feel sorry for the Chinese being lumped with Britney and co when the proper bands cant get a chance

I blame BONO for Oasis being ditched as well - he must have convinced Noel to join the campaigning bandwagon, when deep down i dont think Noel knows where Tibet is.............joke

I am just annoyed bigtime!

Every once in a while, the Chinese people catch a break.

YES WE CAN!

I hope the Chinese that captured Jack Bauer get to see Oasis.

Just rewards, bitches.

I would Oasis for being adventurous in their touring locations.

U2 just play the same, boring, predictable locations. They haven't properly toured in eastern Europe.

I remember when Coldplay's song "Spies" was banned because they felt it was mentioning China when in fact it's more about media. It put a chill up my spine.

"Spies!? How did you...? Hey ban that song!"

Noel's response

Now, before I get grossly misquoted about this (which is inevitable as I'm being interviewed by Q Magazine next week) - China! Fuck me, them communists have got long memories, eh? I can't even remember doing the offending gig 12 years ago? Come on, let it go.

In a bit.GD.

It's probably the reason they keep writing the same fucking song over and over again.

Yep and each rendition gets better and better

I think the Chinese are using this Tibet thing as an excuse
they probably said, "you did a gig with Bono? Get the fuck out of here"

China banned Oasis because of this?

based on this one awful performance China said get lost
Noel looked and sounded totally out of it - thats why he cant remember

He could have done it acoustically!

YouTube - Noel Gallagher - Wonderwall - Live 1997
