Gallagher's Anger Over 'Car Park' Shows

OASIS rocker NOEL GALLAGHER has blasted promoters of the band's South American tour for booking gigs in "car parks" instead of huge stadiums.
The Wonderwall hitmakers wowed fans during their recent jaunt, which included shows in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Peru.
But guitarist Gallagher is disappointed supporters had to travel to remote locations to see the band - insisting he prefers performing at city arenas.
In a posting on the official Oasis blog prior to their gig in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Gallagher writes: "Curitiba was great. The gig was anyway. Dunno what we're trying to prove by playing places like that, and here in Porto Alegre for that matter.
"Why not just do 2 big, f**k off gigs in Rio and Sao Paolo? If everyone in Argentina is willing to travel to Buenos Aires to be part of one of the greatest nights of all time (I'm not kidding, you should've been there!), then I don't see what the difference is in Brazil.
"It's the kids who lose out, if you ask me. Someone throwing up a make-shift stage in some car park can never compare with the noise and colour of a stadium. Still, the gigs themselves are great. Could be better though."
