Fans of rock giants Oasis will be gearing up for a ticket frenzy today as both their Halloween shows at the Odyssey Arena go on sale.
The world-famous rockers will be back in Belfast for two nights at the Odyssey on Wednesday, October 29 and Thursday, October 30, as revealed by the Belfast Telegraph last week.
And tickets are expected to sell out in record time.
The last time Oasis played Belfast, December 18 and 19, 2005, they broke all previous box office records, selling out tickets in 14 minutes.
Queues of fans were expected to form outside ticket retail outlets from the crack of dawn today, while telephone and internet lines were also expected to be kept busy throughout the morning.
Last week Oxegen headliners Kings Of Leon sold out their two Irish shows at the O2 in Dublin on December 19 and the Odyssey on December 20. All 23,000 tickets sold out within minutes of going on sale across Ireland at 9am.
The Oasis tour — expected to sell out across the UK — will coincide with the release of the band’s new album Dig Out Your Soul, on October 6.
Oasis release their new single, The Shock of the Lightning, on September 29, ahead of the album launch.
