For those who booked tickets for Big D - I was going to see them at the Underworld, emailed the ticket site and got a full refund.

Thoughts are with Dave - such an awesome guy - gutted I won't be seeing them but all I hope for is a speedy recovery.

Very happy about a Parkway Drive show one tube stop away...

Obviously there's no denying that, but (I've not really had time to pay attention to this band yet) do they have the quality and material, outside of noel being oasis, to do an arena tour? I'd feel short changed if I went to an arena gig and got one albums worth of material....personal opinion obviously

Along with (in my opinion) tracks off of one of the best records this year, Noel plays full band versions of Oasis songs too though. I doubt he'd start off with arenas if he didn't. And I must say, I prefer some of Noels versions to Oasis'. Wonderwall breathes new life with Noel on vocals using some of Ryan Adams melodies.

I can definitely agree with you there on the Oasis point. All my favourite Oasis songs are the Noel ones, and the unplugged set was amazing! Didn't realise he was still playing Oasis songs though, suppose for many people it's the closest they will ever get to hearing the band live
