Noel Gallagher says there’s a ‘one per cent’ chance of an Oasis reunion

The guitarist discusses rumours of the Britpop band reuniting in a new interview

Noel Gallagher has once again dampened hopes for a reunion of his former band Oasis.

The group parted ways in 2009, with the guitarist releasing the first of two solo albums in 2011.

Despite the possibility of Gallagher reuniting with his brother Liam increasingly the subject of rumours over the past few months, Gallagher has ruled out such a prospect in a new interview.

Speaking to Italy’s Radio Citta Futura, Gallagher was quizzed on a future Oasis reunion, replying: “Oh one, there’s a one per cent chance it might happen, but I don’t think so.”

He continued: “There would have to be extraordinary circumstances, cause I wouldn’t do it artistically, I don’t need the money, I don’t need the record sales. I can’t think of a reason that I would look to do that. What would be the point? I don’t know. I don’t see what the point would be.”

Asked on how he picks which Oasis songs to play or not to play, Gallagher said: “I struggle with set lists, and what to play and what not to play, ’cause I see people all the time, and they say, ‘Ah fucking hell, why didn’t you play fucking ‘Half The World Away’?’ I’m like ‘Why? I can’t play that every time,’ do you know what I mean?”

Earlier on Monday, Gallagher shared a new video for his track ‘Lock All The Doors’.

The clip showed Gallagher and band the High Flying Birds on tour, documenting life on the stage and behind the scenes.

The song itself features on Gallagher’s recent album, ‘Chasing Yesterday’, which was released back in February.
