The band are playing six UK dates later this year - their first of 2001 in Britain - for which they have turned their back on the usual stadiums to perform to just a handful of fans. The tickets were due to go on sale at 10am but fans have been queuing for hours in Glasgow, Manchester and London to make sure they are among the chosen few. A spokeswoman for the band said This is a rare chance to see the band in such small venues. There are only around 4,000 tickets available for each of the cities. Oasis are playing three cities which are close to their hearts and which proved important in their early days.. 6/10/01: Rock superstars Oasis will unveil new material as they begin a series of intimate shows to celebrate ten years as a band.

Researchers found that non-smoking men were exposed to nearly a third more second-hand smoke than women. Socio-economic factors also had a major impact on passive smoking. Non-smokers in the most deprived areas had 50% more exposure than people living in the most affluent neighbourhoods. The study, led by Professor Martin Jarvis at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund's health behaviour unit, is the largest ever investigation into adult exposure to passive smoking in the home.

But Liam pitched his own idea for a musical on Twitter, saying it would be about five lads from Manchester who "start a band and take on the world", before calling his brother a "massive c***".

In an interview with The Sun to mark the anniversary, Noel said of the musical: "The musical – people have been on to me about that for the last 10 years.

"And funnily enough Live Forever is always the title."

"It's inevitable it will happen one day. I will go and see it once."

In the tweet on Thursday, Liam said: "Oasis the musical 5 lads from Manchester start a band and take on the world the little 1 who writes the songs turns into a massive c*** sacks everyone except his little brother as he ain't got the arse splits up the band there's a story line for ya THE END LG x"

Definitely Maybe was released on August 29 1994, becoming a critical and commercial success and shooting the Manchester band to stardom.

Liam and Noel have been locked in a war of words since their acrimonious split in 2009, prompted by a backstage brawl at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris.

Oasis marked the album's 25th anniversary with the release of new lyric video for Fade Away, ahead of a reissue of the vinyl arriving on August 30.

The milestone is also being celebrated with an exhibition at the h Club Gallery in London.

The show, due to open in November, will feature the work of British photographer Michael Spencer Jones, who shadowed the band from their pre-fame days and shot their early album covers.

Titled Masterplan 25: The Oasis Photographs, it will include images taken during recording sessions at Rockfield Recording Studios in Wales and the front room of guitarist Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs.
