They were mobbed by fans though...
NME reports that Liam Gallagher and Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs attended the opening of an Oasis exhibition, Chasing The Sun: Oasis 1993-1997 last night (April 11) at Londonewcastle Project Space in Shoreditch, London. Gallagher and Arthurs spent about 45 minutes posing for pictures and talking to fans in attendance.
Bonehead said after the event: "We didn't get to see [the exhibition] – we got f***ing mobbed. But actually going in there with Liam and seeing what I did see was pretty emotional. I spoke to Paul Slattery, who's got a lot of pictures up, and me and Liam gave him big hugs and made plans to catch up. We looked at each other and went, 'Is it really 20 years ago?' Mental, man – time flies."
Bonehead said his decision to go the event was made a day before. He added: "It was a case of, 'Are you going down?' He was like, 'No.' Then a phone call yesterday, he said, 'Are you going tomorrow?' I was like, 'Not really, I'm doing a gig in Weston-super-Mare tonight. Are you going?' He said, 'If you're going, I'm going,' so I booked a hotel and drove over. I'm glad we made the effort – we both said tonight that we're glad."
Bonehead also said he wants to return to the exhibition for a private viewing, saying, "My son's a big Oasis fan all of sudden and he wants to come and see it."
The exhibition was curated by photographer Lawrence Watson and documents events such as the band's shows at Manchester's Maine Road and Knebworth and also the creation of their albums Definitely Maybe, (What's The Story) Morning Glory?, and Be Here Now. The exhibition also features some previously unseen images from photographers Jill Furminovsky, Paul Slattery, Tom Sheehan, Kevin Cummins and Jamie Fry.
The exhibition marks the reissue of the band's 1994 debut album Definitely Maybe, due out on May 19.
