Tokyo will host “Chasing The Sun: Oasis 1993 – 1997,” an exhibition of rare and iconic photographs, artifacts and memorabilia from the early years of Oasis, one of the most significant bands to emerge from the UK in the past two decades.
“Chasing The Sun” chronicles the band’s supercharged journey from a Manchester rehearsal studio to international rock stardom, via three landmark albums – “Definitely Maybe”, “(What’s The Story) Morning Glory”, and “Be Here Now” - and many legendary gigs, from London’s 100 Club to Glastonbury Festival to their era-defining two night stand at Knebworth House.
The exhibition, which is coming to Japan in October, includes previously unseen images from the photographers who had fly-on-the-wall access to the band. The exhibition will also display some of the iconic instruments played on the early albums (lent by the band members themselves), vintage merchandise, artifacts from the album sleeves. As special content for Japanese exhibition, there will be photos taken by Mitch Ikeda who accompanied the band from the very first Japan tour, plus rarely seen live performance footage of the 1994 Shibuya Club Quattro show. All photography and limited edition Oasis merchandise will be available for purchase.
Opening 20 years to the day since the release of their debut single “Supersonic” (released April 11, 1994), “Chasing The Sun: Oasis 1993 - 1997” is the first ever exhibition dedicated entirely to Oasis.
The exhibition is happening in conjunction with the new “Chasing The Sun” album reissues, which rolled out with the release of “Definitely Maybe” on May 14, followed by “(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?” on Sept 24. Both titles are available on standard CD & digital download, Special Edition 3 x CD & digital download, 12” vinyl LP (with digital download bundle of all bonus CD content), & Deluxe Box Set (including LP, Deluxe CD, exclusive 7” & merchandise).
