Legendary brawl 2002: When Oasis dismantled the Bayerischer Hof

When rock bands meet in hotels, it usually doesn't end well - for example, 20 years ago, when the Oasis freaked out in a luxury hotel in Munich. But the head of the "Bayerischer Hof" has a conciliatory message for the musicians.

According to hotel manager Innegrit Volkhardt, rock bands are better than their reputation as guests. "You can't say that this is a group that stands out," said the head of Munich's luxury hotel Bayerischer Hof. The fact that a hotel room is demolished has always been "rather the exception" and does not happen more often with musicians than with other professional groups. When Volkhardt is out and about in Great Britain to advertise her Bayerischer Hof, she is often asked about a legendary night 20 years ago: Because back then, on December 1, 2002, music history was written in her Munich luxury hotel - "because that's so was more or less the end of Oasis".

"They behaved like pigs," the "Spiegel" quoted a police spokesman at the time as saying. "English rock band Oasis arrested after fight in Munich," the official police report said a little more soberly. But the only thing that was sober about this event was the police report. "It was a wild fight between Oasis and the other group," says Volkhardt in retrospect. She was on vacation at the time, as she says. But then she looked at the video from the surveillance camera. "You only saw a big pile on the camera."

As the police reported, even a five-kilo bollard from the hotel was involved. The argument broke out in the hotel's nightclub just after 2 a.m., according to the police report: "During the course of this argument, one of the musicians was pushed and fell onto the table of other guests." When they tried to "get rid of the uninvited guest", all band members suddenly attacked the group.

Security guards and hotel employees only managed to mediate for a short time - then it continued in front of the entrance to the nightclub. And the employees called the police. "One of the officers on duty was kicked with full force in the chest by Liam G., the band's frontman, and suffered minor injuries," the police report said. This "Liam G." was then arrested together with two other band members - including but not his brother Noel G. - and had to spend a night in prison. That "Liam G." Liam Gallagher was no longer a secret shortly after the incident, especially given the fact that the police immediately released the band's name.

Gallagher no longer wants to talk about that evening today, as a spokeswoman for his record company said when asked. What he thought of the evening and the operation of the Munich police, however, he had previously announced - and accused the officers, among other things, of having two of his incisors on their conscience. The Germany tour the band was on at the time was cancelled. About a week later, the "News of the World" reported: Liam Gallagher has new teeth. They are said to have cost him £20,000 at the time.

Since 2009, fans have been waiting for Liam and Noel to pull themselves together again and relive the great Oasis times. They definitely had a place to stay in Munich: "They weren't the only ones to blame," says hotel manager Volkhardt. "Of course we would take her again."
