New York buskers preview Dig Out Your Soul
Meanwhile, Friday 12 September saw various New York buskers take to the streets to play their own versions of Dig Out Your Soul tracks. Liam Gallagher, Andy Bell and Gem personally attended the buskers' rehearsals of The Turning, Bag It Up, (Get Off Your) High Horse Lady, and The Shock Of The Lightning. Watch rehearsals here.
The event was a collaboration between New York's marketing and tourism organisation and Oasis's US label Warner Brothers. Commuters around Grand Central Station, Times Square, Penn Station and Astor Place were all treated to the buskers' efforts. The event was filmed for a forthcoming Oasis documentary.
What MusicRadar really wants to know is: did the buskers make as much money as they would have playing Wonderwall? There's more footage of the buskers here.
