    Noel Gallagher's performance at a "Free Tibert" concert way back in 1997 has reportedly caused the cancellation of two Chinese Oasis shows next month: April 3 in Beijing and April 5 in Shanghai. According to a statement from the band, "Representatives from the Chinese government have revoked the performance licenses already issued for the band and ordered their shows in both Beijing and Shanghai to be immediately canceled. The Chinese authorities' action in canceling these shows marks a reversal of their decision regarding the band which has left both Oasis and the promoters bewildered.

    The statement continued, "Oasis are extremely disappointed that they are now being prevented from undertaking their planned tour of mainland China and hope that the powers that be within China will reconsider their decision and all the band to perform."

    The southeast Asia leg of Oasis' tour is expected to proceed as planned, including an April 7 stop in Hong Kong.
