Extremely Rare Oasis Contract Requesting ‘Sober Helpers’ To Be Auctioned

An Oasis gig contract requesting “sober-speaking” helpers and “quality lager” for the band and crew during a 1994 performance is to be auctioned.

Papers are expected to sell up to £ 1,500 at Hansons Auctioneers in Derbyshire by the end of the month.

Very Rare

The contract was made before the exhibition of the first Gallagher brothers in The Old Trout area of ​​Windsor, Berkshire.

A Hansons memorial music expert said such things were “very rare”.

Dual food, water, fruit juice and cold drinks are also some of the culinary requests contracted by Primary Talent International Contract.

The Auction

Hansons said the seller is a woman who worked in the music industry who bought it directly from a man who organised gigs at The Old Trout at the time.

She is looking to sell the rare contract, as well as a flyer advertising the gig, before retiring.

Claire Howell, a music memory specialist at Hansons, said: “Items like this are extremely rare and this lot comes with great provenance.

“It is valued at £ 1,000- £ 1,500 but I would not be surprised to see it sold for even more.


“It could easily whip up a bidding frenzy among fans at auction, such is the enduring popularity and nostalgia for Oasis.”

The performance, in May 1994, took place three months before Oasis released its debut album Definitely Maybe.

They continued to be one of the biggest music band clubs in the UK before splitting in 2009.

The contract is listed for sale in the music memorabilia auction on 23 March.
