Q Organisers Fear Oasis Backlash Against U2

British megabands U2 and OASIS are having to be kept apart at the Q music awards later this month (30OCT06), because the organisers are terrified of a spat breaking out between the rival rockers. The two bands are both up for the Best Act In The World Today gong - but after Oasis star LIAM GALLAGHER branded COLDPLAY's CHRIS MARTIN "a plantpot" at last year's (05) bash, the bosses behind the event at London's swanky Grosvenor House fear the worst should Oasis not take home the coveted gong. An insider tells British newspaper the Daily Star, "Oasis and U2 are very important acts to Q and the fact that they've both confirmed to attend the awards has made everyone excited - but twitchy. "The last thing they want is either act to be disgruntled but we expect that whichever loses the gong will not be happy. "We're scheduling to keep them apart before the ceremony and the seating plan puts them on opposite sides of the room."

I agree with Smokey. U2 are mature enough to be good losers. Not so sure about Oasis, though , if they lose.

Hmmmm, wonder who has the track record for starting fights? Sore losers the Gallaghers, perhaps if they stuck to the american leg of their tour then they would crack the world market. U2 have never been known to get into spats over awards, they are too grown up and intelligent for all that, anyway, i don't think they care if they get awards, its the fans that count and its the fans that keep them happy.

The guys in U2 are always gentlemen at awards, and I can't imagine them starting a fight over winning or losing. They are always happy for the winners and sorry for the losers and then go back to whatever they were doing beforehand... I think Q is just trying to add to the hype for this show..
