Definitely Maybe – that generation-defining debut album from Oasis – celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and there are a load of landmark events coming up to celebrate the fact. Mad for it!
An exhibition of rare photographs, artifacts and memorabilia of Oasis’ early years will open in London next month to mark the 20th anniversary of the band’s debut single ‘Supersonic’.
Titled Chasing the Sun: Oasis 1993–1997, the exhibition will open at the the Londonewcastle Project Space in Shoreditch, London on April 11 and will run until April 22. It will be the first exhibition dedicated to the band. Entry will be free.
Documenting many of the band’s now legendary gigs, from Knebworth to Glastonbury to London’s 100 Club, as well as the creation of their albums ‘Definitely Maybe’, ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ and ‘Be Here Now’, the exhibition will feature previously unseen photography.
Also on display will be some of the instruments played on the band’s early albums which have been loaned by band members themselves, as well as merchandise, artefacts from the album sleeves and rare video footage. Find out more about the event here.
The exhibition is taking place to mark the reissue of the band’s 1994 debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’. A remastered version of the Manchester band’s LP will be released on May 19 and will include rare and unreleased recordings. The reissue is the first in the new Chasing The Sun series from Big Brother Recordings, with Oasis’ follow-up albums ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ and ‘Be Here Now’ to follow later this year.
