Oasis to close BBC Electric Proms

United Kingdom United Kingdom | | 29 September 2008

The Manchester band will close the festival, performing at the Roundhouse in London on Sunday 26 October.

The band are promising a special performance at the festival and will be accompanied by the Couch End Festival Chorus, a 50-piece choir.

Speaking about the show Noel Gallagher said: "We are doing the Electric Proms, and we're doing it with the Crouch End Choir as well... there's 50 odd of them...because some of the songs on the album have got a 50 piece choir on them.

"So we're gonna do a night at the Proms with that lot, it should be good actually… Ennio Morricone uses them for his spaghetti western stuff in England, so I’m already looking forward to that because I’ve never played the Roundhouse and I’ve never done the Proms."

Other confirmations today include Ronan Keating, Stephen Gateley, Gabriella Cilmi and Bryn Christopher, who will all perform as part of the special Saturday Night Fever show with Robin Gibb at the Roundhouse on 25 October.

For the first time in its history BBC Electric Proms will take place over two cities with London and Liverpool taking the honours next month.

Tickets for the Oasis show go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday 30 September) at 8.15 am with other tickets and prices for other shows already available HERE.
