Noel Gallagher must be well on the mend by now, as Oasis have just announced the American leg of their Dig Out Your Soul world tour.

The tour, the band's first in the US in three years, will kick off on December 3 in Oakland, California and includes a date at New York City's Madison Square Garden on December 17.

Ryan Adams & The Cardinals will once again be special guests on all dates.

And here's a groovy little extra: For a limited time, every Oasis ticket order made through Ticketmaster, comes with the option to upgrade to a special package containing your concert ticket, a Dig Out Your Soul CD, and an exclusive Oasis tour T-shirt. (Hey, we like swag - how do we get in on this deal?)

The facts, Jack

Oasisinet is offering a pre-sale for registered fans. While tickets go on general sale on October 3 (October 4 for the Chicago gig), Oasis fans can apply for tickets through the pre-sale from Tuesday, September 30 at 10am (local time) until 10 om (local time). For the December 12 Chicago show, the pre-sale is Thursday, October 2.

Which means a lot of you can start ordering tickets...right now! And if anybody has some crazy notion of bum-rushing Noel Gallagher onstage, be warned, he's hired some extra nasty security guards who love nothing more than pummeling nutty "fans."
