Oasis at Staples Center

Oasis started off a little flat for the first half of the set. I don't know whether it was the mix, Liam's nasally vocal delivery or a combination of both but I was still enjoying Chris Sharrock's drumming, which was (of course) amazing throughout. It wasn't until Liam started a row with someone in the audience and Noel delivered an immaculate version of 'The Masterplan' that the gig really kicked into gear - Liam returning with a swagger to deliver a blistering version of 'Slide Away'. The rest of the set was plain sailing and even the songs from the new album sounded good. The encore included the obligatory 'Don't Look back in anger', 'Champagne Supanova' and 'I am the walrus'...
