Tabloid reports suggested band would reunite for arena gigs next year
A spokesperson for Liam Gallagher has denied tabloid reports that Oasis will reform in 2016.
The Daily Star reports that Liam and brother Noel are in “serious talks” to reform for a series of arena gigs alongside former bandmates Andy Bell and Gem Archer. It is the latest in a long line of Oasis reunion reports to emerge since the band split in 2009.
“Other bands have reunited and had a fantastic pay day so it makes sense for everyone involved,” a source told the paper. “It has been discussed seriously – it’s only a matter of time. It is looking so certain it is worth betting on for next year.”
However, approached for comment by NME a spokesperson for Liam Gallagher said that the rumours are “totally unfounded”. A request for comment from Noel’s camp has not received a reply at the time of writing.
Earlier this year Noel hinted at there still being tension between him and his brother. Gallagher exchanged words with a heckler at a gig in Cork. “Where’s Liam?”, shouted the fan, to which Noel replied, “For the benefit of everybody, there’s some comedian here that’s just said, ‘Where’s Liam?’ Is he a local comedian?”
He continued: “Liam’s at home looking at himself in the mirror.”
Gallagher then turned his sights onto the heckler himself, adding: “Fortunately, he’s still not as big of a cunt as you are. Imagine that, being a bigger cunt than our kid. Imagine that.”
