‘Match day programme’ from Oasis' infamous gig at Maine Road.
Supporting acts were Ocean Colour Scene and Manic Street Preachers, oh and the 1966 World Cup final replayed on the big screens.
Didn't see much of the support to be fair. Ocean Colour Scene's set was interupted by a white kagool clad Liam Gallacher arsing about in the boxes at the top of the Kippax. The focus of 40,000 people was on him rather than OCS great rendition of ‘The Riverboat Song’.
Missed the whole of the Manics' set, queuing up for a pint. I came back to my seat with said pint after 40 minutes, much to the annoyance of my mate Jeff, who I forgot to buy one for. That's still raises a smile after all these years.
If memory serves me correctly, it was also the Islamic festival of Eid; I was nearly run over outside by a revellers in car doing doughnuts on the road. Great days.
After the gig, caught the bus back into ‘town’ (city centre to the laymen) and spotted the aforementioned man in the white kagool walking down the street. It wasn't Liam Gallacher after all...
