Gallagher dedicates "Live Forever" to Ashcroft

Oasis suffered a short sound problem during their Wembley Stadium show in London last night (July 9) – but Noel Gallagher was quick to quash any refunds.

The band suffered a loss of sound as they performed 'Wonderwall', although with the crowd in full voice the audience ably finished the song.

However following trouble at Manchester's Heaton Park when the band announced their would be refunds from the stage before managing to play most of their intended set, the guitarist was quick to quip there would be no money back offers this time.

"Last time this happened it cost us half-a-million quid, so just to be clear none of you are getting your fucking money back," he declared from the stage. "Not you, not you, not you with the glasses!"

However the problem proved to be just a blip in the set, which saw frontman Liam Gallagher dedicate 'Live Forever' to The Verve's Richard Ashcroft, who was at the gig.

The Gallaghers also had a pop at bandmate Andy Bell's sunglasses, suggesting he "looks like he's just come from the Jackson memorial".

Earlier Kasabian, The Enemy and Reverend And The Makers had all performed.
