Oasis Count The Cost Of Axed Shows

OASIS are set to continue rocking without main songwriter NOEL GALLAGHER - after it emerged his bust-up with brother LIAM has already cost the band almost $7.5 million (£5 million).
Guitarist Noel quit the Wonderwall hitmakers in a rage on Friday evening (28Aug09) after a backstage brawl with his sibling at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris, France.
The band axed the two remaining dates on the tour - in Konstanz, Germany, and Milan, Italy - and Noel returned to the U.K. while Liam fled to Lake Como, Italy for a break with his wife Nicole Appleton and Oasis bass player Andy Bell.
The cancellations have cost the band an estimated $7.12 million (£4.75 million) in appearance fees and sales of merchandise.
And latest reports in the U.K. suggest the warring brothers could battle each other for the right to use the name "Oasis" amid rumours Liam plans to keep the band going without his brother.
