The two Oasis concerts at Wembley Stadium were the most eagerly anticipated rock shows of the Summer, and proved to be highlights of an extraordinary World Tour. These sold out gigs were a rock'n'roll triumph: 70,000 people each night singing each song word-perfectly, captivated by the band's every move, scorching sound and stunning lighting and imagery.

On November 14, 2000 Oasis will release a live album of the first Wembley Stadium show which took place on July 21st. The double album, released on Epic in conjunction with the band's own label Big Brother is entitled 'Familiar To Millions' and will feature their entire set from that gig as well as an extra song recorded during the band's world tour. The album was mixed by Mark 'Spike' Stent who co-produced 'Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants' with Noel Gallagher. Available on double CD, Cassette, Minidisc and triple vinyl, the track listing for 'Familiar To Millions' is as follows:

F***in' In The Bushes ~ Go Let It Out ~ Who Feels Love? ~ Supersonic ~Shakermaker ~ Acquiesce ~ Step Out ~ Gas Panic! ~ Roll With It ~ Stand By Me ~ Wonderwall ~Cigarettes And Alcohol ~ Don't Look Back In Anger ~ Live Forever ~ Hey Hey, My My ~ Champagne Supernova ~ Rock'n'Roll Star and the following extra song:  Helter Skelter (from the Riverside Theatre in Milwaukee, WI) 

As previously announced, a DVD and VHS video of the same Wembley show will also be released on November 14th. The video features an exclusive interview with Noel and Liam Gallagher, while the DVD includes a documentary shot around the show by Grant Gee (the director of Radiohead's 'Meeting People Is Easy' film) and interactive innovations.

Oasis played to 1.2 million people in 23 countries during their year 2000 World Tour. In the UK alone they played to 450,000 fans, including 145,000 at Wembley. The tour ended with triumphant shows headlining the Reading, Leeds and Glasgow Green. Oasis are currently writing and recording brand new material.

"Most strikingly, a young fan dances precariously on the roof of the mixing desk tent, risking everything for a glimpse of immortality as the 'Live Forever' anthem is accompanied by gasps from the crowd." The Guardian
