Liam Gallagher has said Oasis will reunite "if the musical gods want it to happen".

The Beady Eye frontman was speaking shortly after his band's secret performance on the Other Stage at this year's Glastonbury festival when he made the revelation.

He told Digital Spy: "Me and our kid [Noel] still don't speak. Gem [Archer] and the lads still speak. Without being fucking hippy, it'll happen when it'll happen. If the musical gods want it to happen."

He added: "Wherever it'll be, it will be big. But who's to say it should be big? Maybe it'll be small. If it does happen, we'll be match-fit."

Earlier today (June 28), played an unbilled, earlybird set at this year's Glastonbury festival. The show took place on the Other Stage at 11am as the festival officially got underway.

Frontman Liam Gallagher dropped a big hint about the show on Twitter on June 26, writing "11am Friday - BE there or BE square..LG", and a sizeable crowd had gathered to see the band's performance. Playing a set heavy on material from their latest album 'BE', they began with 'Flick Of The Finger', one of a few songs to employ trumpets and saxophones in an effort to recreate the album's psychedelic sound. The band also played two Oasis songs: 'Rock 'N' Roll Star' and 'Morning Glory'.

During 'Rock 'N' Roll Star', Gallagher said "Tonight, I'm a rock 'n' roll star – at 11.30 in the fucking morning!" He had introduced the song as being "for Lennon and Gene," his sons, and told the crowd, "You're welcome," after the track. The band closed with their debut single, 'Bring The Light'. Gallagher told the crowd afterwards: "I've given you a headache; you've been amazing – but not as good as us."

Beady Eye played:

'Flick Of The Finger'
'Four Letter Word'
'Soul Love'
'Second Bite Of The Apple'
'Iz Rite'
'Shine A Light'
'Rock 'N' Roll Star'
'I'm Just Saying'
'Morning Glory'
'The Roller'
'Bring The Light'
