Oasis exhibition to open in London

“Chasing The Sun: Oasis 1993 – 1997”, an exhibition of rare and iconic photographs, artifacts and memorabilia from the early years of Oasis is set to open next month in London.

Opening 20 years to the day since the release of the debut Oasis single, “Supersonic”, “Chasing The Sun” covers the story of the band’s three landmark albums – 1994’s “Definitely Maybe”, 1995’s “(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?” and 1997’s “Be Here Now” – along with many legendary gigs including London’s 100 Club, Glastonbury Festival and their era-defining two night stand at Knebworth House.

The exhibition is curated by Lawrence Watson and includes previously unseen images from the photographers who had fly-on-the-wall access to the band. It is also a chance to see some of the iconic instruments played on the early albums (lent by the band members themselves), alongside vintage merchandise, artifacts from the album sleeves and some rarely seen early audio-visual content.

“Chasing The Sun: Oasis 1993 – 1997” runs from April 11 – 22 at LondonNewcastle Project Space and entry is free.

Oasis will release a 20th anniversary edition of “Definitely Maybe” on May 20.

It was the fastest selling debut album of all time in the UK when it was released and went on to be certified 7x Platinum (2.1 million+ sales) in the band’s home country.
