'No deal, no table...'
Bookies recently slashed the odds of the Britpop giants reuniting for a special gig at Slane Castle to coincide with the 25th anniversary of their debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’. The band were reportedly offered a lucrative sum to reunite for a massive show at the venue and Irish promoters MCD later confirmed that a deal was tabled for their return.
It was previously claimed that £20million had been offered.
“We promote Liam, and we promote Noel. Liam has always said someday they will [reform]”, MCD boss Denis Desmond told Extra.IE. “They’ve played Slane with R.E.M., there’s always an offer on the table, and they know it. It goes up every week. And they know that as well.”
However, a reunion still seems as unlikely as ever. When one fan asked Liam about the supposed ‘deal on the table’, Gallagher replied: “No deal, no table, but like I’ve said before I’m ready to go.”
Liam made headlines summer this year when he pleaded with Noel to reform the band.
“Earth to noel listen up rkid I hear your doing gigs where people can’t drink alcohol now that’s the BeZarist thing you’ve done yet,” Liam wrote on Twitter earlier this year. “I forgive you now let’s get the BIG O back together and stop fucking about the drinks are on me LG x”
However, it seems that both camps will be preoccupied for the forseeable future. Noel Gallagher recently confirmed that he hopes to start work on his next solo album in January, while Liam has announced an intimate gig at London’s Union Chapel while he completes work on his second solo album.
Meanwhile, today saw Oasis share a new lyric video for ‘She’s Electric‘ to mark the 23rd anniversary of ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory’.
In August, Liam and partner Debbie Gwyther denied allegations that he had assaulted her on a night out.
