Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has claimed he and his band-mates are in the midst of "bad times" while touring South America and heading for conflict.

The singer-songwriter revealed the inter-band arguments while writing on his blog on the band's official MySpace page.

"We speak at bad times for the Oasis tour," he wrote. "Bad times. We are a rudderless ship at the minute. And there's a f****n' s**t-storm on the horizon. I guess all will be revealed in due course."

He added: "Strange atmosphere. I wouldn't mind but we're in South America! Playing massive stadiums and there's a bit too much hrmph-ing going on for my liking. Shame really."

The Manchester band have toured the world in support of their seventh album Dig Out Your Soul and will begin a series of stadium shows across the UK and Ireland next month, starting at Manchester's Heaton Park on June 4th, 6th and 7th.

Gallagher referred to the Heaton Park shows while blogging about his friend Ricky Hatton's boxing defeat at the weekend to Manny Pacquiao.

Hatton, a Manchester City fan like Gallagher, was knocked out in the second round of his IBO light-welterweight clash with Pacquiao in Las Vegas.

"A f****n' disaster," Gallagher wrote. "Knocked out in two rounds. Crushed.

"I guess the cheque will soften the blow, but still… f**k! Never mind, we can all help him drown his sorrows at Heaton Park".

Oasis' 2009 stadium shows will take place at:June

4th, 6th and 7th - Manchester, Heaton Park
10th - Sunderland, Stadium of Light
12th - Cardiff, Millennium Stadium
17th - Edinburgh, Murrayfield
20th - Dublin, Slane Castle


9th, 11th and 12th - London, Wembley Stadium
