Oasis Axe Festival Set

Rockers OASIS were forced to pull out of a prestigious gig at a British music festival on Sunday (23Aug09) after frontman LIAM GALLAGHER lost his voice.
The Wonderwall hitmakers were due to close the V Festival in Chelmsford, England with a headlining set, their last performance in the U.K. this year (09).
But singer Liam was rendered voiceless after pushing himself to the limit at the Staffordshire leg of the outdoor event on Saturday (22Aug09), forcing the band to axe their slot just hours before taking the stage.
British rockers Snow Patrol will close the event instead.
A festival source tells WENN, "Liam gave it his all during their set on Saturday night but unfortunately it's taken its toll on his voice. The band really wanted to give everyone a great send-off by closing the festival on Sunday and they're very disappointed."
A spokesman for the event says, "V Festival organisers regret to share the news with fans that unfortunately tonight's headlining performance will not go ahead as planned. Unfortunately frontman Liam Gallagher is unwell with viral laryngitis and has been advised by doctors not to perform at tonight's event.
"Organisers are pleased to be able to announce that Snow Patrol will be filling the headline slot."
Festival director Bob Angus adds, "Fans will naturally be disappointed but of course the artist's health must come first."
And a spokesperson for Oasis says, "After a year of being on the road this is the first performance to be lost to a band member's illness, so naturally we are all completely gutted (disappointed). Liam is resting up and should be fine to resume the tour next Friday in Paris."
