Q Organisers Fear Oasis Backlash Against U2
British megabands U2 and Oasis are having to be kept apart at the Q music awards later this month (30OCT06), because the organisers are terrified of a spat breaking out between the rival rockers. The two bands are both up for the Best Act In The World Today gong - but after Oasis star Liam Gallagher branded Coldplay's Chris Martin "a plantpot" at last year's (05) bash, the bosses behind the event at London's swanky Grosvenor House fear the worst should Oasis not take home the coveted gong. An insider tells British newspaper the Daily Star, "Oasis and U2 are very important acts to Q and the fact that they've both confirmed to attend the awards has made everyone excited - but twitchy. "The last thing they want is either act to be disgruntled but we expect that whichever loses the gong will not be happy. "We're scheduling to keep them apart before the ceremony and the seating plan puts them on opposite sides of the room."
