Oasis Form Charity Supergroup

British chart-stars OASIS have secretly formed a rock supergroup for a one-off charity concert.

WONDERWALL hitmakers NOEL and LIAM GALLAGHER will be joined onstage by former BEATLES drummer RINGO STARR's son ZAK STARKEY, THE WHO singer ROGER DALTREY and STEREOPHONICS frontman KELLY JONES at the London gig for the TEENAGE CANCER TRUST on 30 March (04).

The Gallaghers recruited drummer Starkey for the show at London's ROYAL ALBERT HALL after he called and offered his services.

A source explains, "Zak has been desperate to play with Oasis for a while. He's a big fan - and they're big Beatles fans - so everyone is happy."

The gig marks the start of a week of performances for the charity - which will include a show by veteran crooner TOM JONES and gigs by top British comedians.

TOMMY rocker Daltrey, a patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust - came up with the idea for the annual charity gigs, which have so far raised $3.6 million (GBP2 million) for the cause.

He says of this year's extravaganza, "It is fantastic that we have another line-up of exceptional shows."
