Oasis Announced As Final Electric Proms Headliner

by | 30 September 2008

Oasis will close the 2008 BBC Electric Proms, it has been announced.

The Gallaghers will celebrate the release of their new album Dig Out Your Soul by taking to the stage at the Roundhouse in London on Sunday October 26th, bringing to a close five days of music in the capital and Liverpool.

"We are doing the Electric Proms, and we're doing it with the Crouch End Choir as well," guitarist Noel Gallagher confirmed.

"There's 50 odd of them... because some of the songs on the album have got a 50-piece choir on them.

"So we're gonna do a night at the Proms with that lot, it should be good actually.

"Ennio Morricone uses them for his spaghetti western stuff in England, so I'm already looking forward to that because I've never played the Roundhouse and I've never done the Proms."

Festival Director Lorna Clarke added: "The closing night of the BBC Electric Proms has seen some legendary music acts take to the stage, including Ray Davies and the Who.

"Oasis are the perfect choice to close this year's event and bring a massive performance to an iconic and intimate London music venue."

Tickets for Oasis' Roundhouse show will go on sale on Tuesday September 30th at 08:15 BST from bbc.co.uk/electricproms.

Scottish indie rockers Glasvegas are to support Oasis at the Roundhouse, it was also announced, and the concert will be broadcast on BBC Radio 1 from 21:00 on October 26th, and on BBC2 at 22:45 on the same day.

Other acts performing at this year's Electric Proms include Razorlight, The Streets, the Last Shadow Puppets and Burt Bacharach.

Highlights from this year's performances will be screened on BBC2 and BBC4 throughout the October event.
