‘CHASING THE SUN: OASIS 1993 – 1997’
OCTOBER 14 – 25, OLD GRANADA STUDIOS
The acclaimed exhibition Chasing The Sun: Oasis 1993 – 1997 is to visit the iconic Manchester band’s hometown, running from October 14th – 25th at Old Granada Studios. Chasing The Sun takes us on Oasis’s supercharged journey to international megastardom, 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 Maine Road Stadium, Manchester to their era-defining two-night stand at Knebworth House.
Curated by renowned photographer Lawrence Watson, Chasing The Sun 1993-1997 debuted in London in 2014, attracting over 40,000 visitors in 10 days and receiving plaudits from press and fans alike. The exhibition then toured to Tokyo, and now, with the Manchester edition, the show comes home to where the story of Oasis began.
The Manchester incarnation of the exhibition has been extended making it bigger and better than ever before, with additional rare and iconic content artefacts and photographs. It also features a life-size recreation of the front room in which the iconic artwork for ‘Definitely Maybe’ was photographed and a display featuring many of the original props.
The exhibition will be open daily from noon to 7pm, with the exception on Sundays when doors will close at 6pm. Admission FREE.
