Scenes from a Party, Oasis of the Seas

Oasis tonight big event of the Seas was a gala dinner in the Opus Dining Room, where photographer/reporter Teijo Niemela curses that the lamb chops served were the best he's had in years. Then the party moved out onto the Royal Promenade. What's fun about this series of photographs is that it shows the ship in what presumably will be its more natural state -- lots of people out and about, noshing, drinking, having fun. Since it's dark at this point (and let's be honest, it's fall in Finland, which means it's also a bit cold at night), the events focused on indoor spaces aboard Oasis of the Seas. Stay tuned tomorrow for more of Niemela's shots from his tour of the ship earlier on Thursday.

Expected Oasis split, Liam Gallagher

When Oasis split up Liam Gallagher wasn't shocked.
The future of the pair was left hanging in the balance in August when Liam's brother, guitarist Noel Gallagher, quit the band because of arguments with his sibling.
The singer admits he expected the 'Live Forever' hitmakers to disband but is still struggling to deal with what happened.
He said: "I'd love to talk about it but I can't do this because I haven't after 18 years in Oasis had the time to think about the situation. It's only been just over a month and I have to sit down and work it out because my comments would be on my musical headstone.
"But I'm gutted. I love being in Oasis. When I'm ready, you will hear the story of side. It wasn't a shock to me hat we split."
Despite his unhappy , Liam says he is "proud" of the way the band ended.
He added to Live magazine: "It took the members of Oasis to knock it on the head. All the people who said we wouldn't last? We did and in the end no one got to us except for us. We were the ones who brought Oasis down and not our critics. I'm very proud of that."

Oasis Are Officially “No Longer”

When Noel Gallagher revealed in August that he was leaving Oasis, fans hoped that the Gallagher brothers would reconcile (yet again) and the band would reconnect. However, two months have passed since the contentious siblings reportedly clashed backstage, and this time it’s Liam Gallagher who is proclaiming that Oasis are officially finished in a new interview with the Times U.K.. “Oasis is no longer. I think we all know that. So that’s done,” Liam said. “Without a doubt. And it’s a shame but that’s life. We had a good run at it.”
Check out backstage and live shots from Oasis’ final U.S. tour.
As Rolling Stone reported in August, Noel Gallagher left Oasis before the band’s scheduled concert in France after he and Liam reportedly “had a fight backstage.” After the blowup, Noel released a statement that reads, “It’s with some unhappy and good alleviation to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.”
Liam Gallagher says he was relieved that the band ended on its own terms, even if the terms included flailing fists. “We ended Oasis. No one ended it for us, which is kind of cool,” the frontman told the Times U.K., adding that the ride as one of the biggest British bands of the decade was “always a lot of fun,” but “nothing lasts forever.” With Oasis finished although we suspect a large check from Glastonbury will finally give the Gallaghers second thoughts Liam said he’ll next concentrate on his own music. “I’m thinking of what the next step is musically, which is all my mind’s on,” Liam said. “I’ll be doing music to the day I die.”
