British boyband Take That have urged fans to buy tickets for their concerts instead of rockers Oasis' upcoming live dates - insisting their gigs are better value for money.
The two groups are both kicking off their new stadium tours in June 2009, with both bands playing shows at several of the same venues just days apart from each other.
And the Pray hitmakers are adamant music fans should buy tickets for their show - because Oasis "just stand around and sing".
Take That star Howard Donald says, "There's a totally different energy to the two shows. We're all about the spectacle, putting on an amazing show for the fans, with lots of high energy and dancing.
"Oasis are great - if you just want to see a band stand still and sing. They have a different kind of energy."
Fellow bandmember Mark Owen adds, "I really want to go and see Oasis but if finances make people choose one or the other, then come and see us."
In 2000, Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher was famously embroiled in a war of words with former Take That star Robbie Williams, who challenged the rocker to a boxing match after Gallagher referred to the singer as "the fat dancer from Take That" in an interview.
