Oasist played a one day festival in Bugibba (Malta) which was the equivalent to Glastonbury/Glastonbudget here in the UK. There were several tributes including Coldplace, Killer Queen, Jilted Generation (Prodigy) and of course us. The original 60s sensations the Animals and Yardbirds were also there not to mention several international DJs.
There were 5 stages and as planned on the main Bay square with fantastic veiws of the ocean we supported the Animals.
The night opened with an original Maltease band called Frenzy Mono who got the crowd warmed up with there heavy Rock. A great 45 minute show. Fantastic band and top lads.
Next up Oasist played and with an audience of over 3000 people you can imagine the great roar as the band walked on stage starting off with Swamp Song. As Luke (Liam) walked on during Swamp Song the crowd got even more exited when hand gestures were thrown there way. Oasist did a 1 hour show which included all the classics such as Supersonic, Live Forever, Cigarettes & Alcohol, Dont Look Back In Anger, Wonderwall, Morning Glory, Some Might Say, Champagne Supernova, Lyla and many more. This was a top night & week for Oasist in malta.
To close the night were the fantastic ANIMALS and what a great job they did too. Playing all originals like We Gotta Get Out Of This Place, Dont Let Me Be Misunderstood, Baby Let Me Take You Home and of course they finished the night with House Of The Rising Sun. Many more were played and even a few covers thrown in. Fantastic band and great set of guys.
Then the private after party started where all bands met up and shared there experiences of the big festival.
The overall experience was brilliant in Malta and a BIG THANKS goes out to Manuel who helped organise the whole show. Thanks to Emily, who was our personal assistant who was always there. Thanks to the guys who did the p.a system and lighting rig. Thanks to The Animals for all signatures & photos & for sharing their taxi at the airport haha....
