Oasis to play Stadium of Light

The band that stamped Britpop firmly on the global music map will be taking the Stadium of Light by storm next year.

Supergroup Oasis have announced they will be bringing their world famous sounds to Sunderland in June as the Black Cats' home is opened up for a musical extravaganza.

The Mancunian band, which was propelled to fame in the Nineties with smash hit debut album Definitely Maybe, will be supported by two other massive acts - Kasabian and The Enemy - a massive coup for the city.

They will play at the Stadium of Light on June 10.
