“You and I are gonna Viva Forever…” One of the best things to come out of a mostly dispiriting Olympic closing ceremony was this photo of Beady Eye’s Liam Gallagher partying with The Spice Girls (tweeted by Emma Bunton), after both artists had performed at the Olympic Stadium.
Oasis and The Spice Girls were two of the biggest British acts of the 90s, so it’s fun to imagine what kind of debauched memories they might have shared. Who wouldn’t want to be a fly on the wall at this shindig – especially as we know it went on until at least 5am, and also involved Dom from Muse.
It’s not the first time this lot have caroused together, either. Liam’s famously worse-for-wear performance with Oasis at Wembley Stadium in 2000 was the result of “being out all night with a Spice Girl”, according to brother Noel. As for the commenter who suggested Liam should now be nick-named ‘Old Spice’, shame on you.
