Gallagher: 'Benicassim Was Waste Of Time'

NOEL GALLAGHER has branded OASIS' performance at the weekend's (18-19Jul09) Benicassim music festival a "waste of time" because of the sound problems they endured.
The rockers were playing at the Spanish event when they lost sound, causing frontman Liam Gallagher to exit the stage in the middle of their song Wonderwall, before returning to finish the set later on.
And Noel insists the gig would have been a complete disaster if it weren't for the enthusiastic fans cheering the band on.
Writing on his blog, Gallagher says, "Benicassim. What a f**kin' waste of time! If it wasn't for those bloody kids it would've been a disaster. I really can't say enough about the crowd. Unbelievable behaviour. Special mention to the topless birds (girls) - what a welcome sight that was!
"The problem was... wait for it... yes! The f**kin' PA (public address system). It blew twice! And the monitor system blew twice! It's becoming a joke. And not a very funny one."
It's the latest in a string of sound problems which have blighted Oasis' summer gigs. Fans attending the band's homecoming concert in Manchester, England last month (Jun09) were given refunds after a generator cut out and stopped the set halfway through. The band's massive gig at London's Wembley Stadium was also hit by technical difficulties.
