I am a huge Oasis fan so when they announced their Exist tour, i tried to go to as many gigs as i could. I got tickets for 8 gigs and Finsbury park was without doubt the worst Oasis gig i've ever been at in my life.
I went on the saturday night and arrived quite early to see Proud Mary, The Charlatans etc. Even before oasis came on, there was a really iffy atmosphere in the crowd, it seemed as if everything was going to kick off.
Everyone knows that its a pain having to queue for the toilets at outdoor gigs but most people at Finsbury park were content with relieving themselves in bottles and throwing them into the crowd. Now i'm all up for a laugh at gigs but throwing bottles of bodily fluids isn't good.
Oasis as were amazing live as usual but the crowd really let the gig down. I felt as if i had to always be on my guard so i couldnt relax and enjoy myself completely.
I've been to 17 Oasis gigs so far and i would go back to see them in London because i'll go anywhere to see them but if you have to decide to see them in an arena or a stadium, pick a stadium first.
Please don't hesitate to go and see Oasis live, you wont regret it, they're the best band in the world, without doubt.
The atmosphre sounds dodgy. i've been to festivals and never had that problem. Even Reading. More about the acxtual gig would be good

Oh dear, I went to Donnington once and I remember the bottles flying around - not nice! I'm sorry for the low rating - what you have written is fine, but you haven't actually told us anything about the music or the actual venue.
