Alan McGee on when and how Oasis could reunite

The former Creation Records boss says: 'Noel is my pal, I know how he thinks'

Alan McGee has spoken out about when and how he thinks Oasis might reforming – saying that fans may have to wait a decade and that Noel Gallagher likely won’t be involved.

The former Creation Records boss first signed Oasis in 1993 and remains in close contact with Noel Gallagher. However, he says that it could be quite some time before we see a reunion tour.

“I don’t think they’ll get back together – not with Noel, anyway,” he said at a Glasgow screening of Supersonic, reports The Scotsman. “He’s my pal, I know how he thinks, and he doesn’t need it. “The two of them don’t get on. It’s not an act.”


He didn’t completely rule it out, however – adding: “I think it will get to a stage when Liam takes them back on the road, maybe in 10 years or something. There is a massive fan base of younger people who never had the chance to see them live.”


McGee made similar comments to NME earlier this year. “I don’t think Noel will ever reform Oasis, ever – but when he’s a bit older I think Liam will probably reform Oasis and he’ll sell 10,000 tickets a night singing Oasis tunes and he’ll be happy with that,” he said. “I can’t see Noel Gallagher going back and doing it. If anything came out of that film [Supersonic], it was that it’s done, it’s finished, don’t spoil the fucking legend.”

This comes after this week saw the former girlfriend of Noel Gallagher who inspired the track ‘Talk Tonight’ and saved Oasis from splitting up in 1994 was finally found and revealed.

Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher is currently working on his debut solo album.
