Noel Gallagher says he’ll reform Oasis for “half a billion”

'If somebody puts that on the table, I'll pack my bags in the morning and say, "How many gigs do you want?" said Gallagher

Noel Gallagher has said that he would reform Oasis for “half a billion”.

Speaking to Vulture, Gallagher commented: “If somebody puts that on the table, I’ll pack my bags in the morning and say, “How many gigs do you want?”

However, he added that the idea of reforming the band isn’t only up to him. “The thing that slightly annoys me is — and I know I’m the only one doing interviews — people assume it’s up to me,” he explained. “Let’s say I get up tomorrow morning, have a stretch, and say to my wife, “How about this Oasis thing?” It’s not up to me. Who knows if Liam wants to do it? He probably does, but I don’t know. It’s not on my radar at all. I’m very happy with what I’m doing.”

Meanwhile, Noel will appear on Match Of The Day 2 as a pundit this weekend. Gallagher will line-up alongside regular pundits Jermaine Jenas and Mark Lawrenson on the show, which is hosted by Mark Chapman.

In his role as guest pundit Gallagher will front a feature on the match between his beloved Manchester City and Newcastle as well as talking about the big games from Sunday, including Spurs v West Ham, Everton v Leicester and Southampton v Liverpool.

Gallagher’s appearance comes amid the promotional campaign for new album ‘Chasing Yesterday’. The singer and guitarist has done a number of interviews recently as he prepares to release the record, which is out on March 2.

Speaking to NME, he admitted he would love to accept Carl Barât’s invitation to produce the new Libertines album, but the band’s insistence on recording abroad means he will be unable to participate.

Match Of The Day 2 is on BBC One this Sunday (February 22) at 10:30pm.
