Liam and Noel Gallagher might not be ready to bury the hatchet to celebrate this year's 20th anniversary of Oasis' debut album, Definitely Maybe , but fans in the U.K. will get the chance to look back...and not in anger, either.
Ahead of the release of four different anniversary editions of the album this May, the first historical exhibition devoted entirely to Oasis is scheduled to open in London.
The show, "Chasing the Sun: Oasis 1993–1997," is scheduled to run from April 11-22 at London's Londonewcastle Project Space. On display will be rare and previously unseen photographs, artifacts and memorabilia documenting the band's early years. Images from some of the band's legendary British gigs, as well shots from the recording sessions for the first three Oasis albums, are among the highlights.
Also on display will be instruments played by the band during the period, as well as vintage merchandise and early video footage.
The Guardian has posted to its website a selection of photos of the band's early years which will be part of the show.
Due May 20, the
reissues come in four flavors: a standard CD; special edition 3-CD set that includes B-sides and rarities; a vinyl LP/digital download bundle, and a deluxe box set featuring even more exclusive merchandise. Similar reissues of
(What's The Story) Morning Glory?
Be Here Now
will follow later this year.
You'll be able to score a special Record Store Day 12" LP of the Oasis' debut single, "Supersonic," plus two B-side tracks -- "Take Me Away" and "I Will Believe" (Live) -- on Record Store Day, April 19.
