Oasis To Headline Knife Crime Concert In London?

Oasis To Headline Knife Crime Concert In London?

Oasis have expressed an interest in taking part in a special awareness concert in London, it’s been reported.

The event in Finsbury Park, scheduled to take place in September (apparently on 21 September, read below), is being organised to highlight the issue of knife crime in the capital.

According to BBC6 Music, Oasis, Lily Allen, Madness and Kelly Rowland have all been named by organisers – but none have yet to confirm their participation.

The concert, which would attract 39,000 people, has been backed by London’s Mayor, Boris Johnson, and the Metropolitan Police.
Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher recently called on politicians to take action against Britain’s knife problem, saying he feared the reality of the problem, and the impact it could have on his own children.
“In my day, status was trying to be somebody, do you know what I mean, not trying to kill somebody?” he told the BBC.

In London alone, twenty teenagers have lost their lives in 2008 as a result of a knife attack.

The Gallagher brothers will preform at Finsbury Park, on September 21, for the tragic teenager – along with Madness, McFly and Kelly Rowland, 27.

Ben brother of actress Brooke Kinsella, 24 – was stabbed to death outside a bar in Hollywell, north London, on June 29.

    Dear sir/madam

    I am writing to you to let you know that I am interested in what you are doing.
    Last year on the 19th September a close friend (Darren Pyper, 14 years old) died in a knife crime incodent.
    To raise awareness of the aftermath of knife crime a group of Darren’s family and friends are raising money and hoping on the 20th September 2008 holding a prosecion from his bench (Ashton Road, Gourock, Scotland) to the Battery Park then having entertainment through out the day.
    On that day we are hoping to show people how easy knife crime can come about and how it affects everyone and how we’v all found it hard to cope with.
    When I heard you were doing a knife awareness campaign I was wondering if you would be willing to contact me with further information of what you are doing and if you would be willing to help our campaign too.

    Thank You
    Kendall
