Oasis roll with it in Japan
Liam Gallagher
Comeback tour: Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher in Japan
Oasis have kicked off their first world tour since 1998 in front of a sell-out, screaming crowd in Toyko.

The band played a 90-minute set which mixed tracks from their new album Standing on the Shoulder Of Giants and a few Oasis classics, including Wonderwall, Live Forever and Some Might Say.

It was the first of 11 Japanese dates at the Yokohama Arena before the group move on to play more than 40 dates in Europe and North America.

Fans in Britain will have to wait until the summer to catch their shows - the first UK date is at Bolton's Reebok Stadium on July 15.

They performed a handful of shows in the US in December to give them a taste of performing together since new members Gem Archer and Andy Bell were recruited.

They also recorded a low-key British TV show for BBC Two's Later With Jools Holland in front of a select audience at BBC Television Centre last month which will be screened on 1 April.
