Noel Gallagher on future of Oasis: ‘Liam is a very angry man still’

Gallagher is open to idea of playing Oasis material only solo gigs though

Noel Gallagher has mooted the idea of doing solo gigs were he plays all-Oasis material, but again ruled out a full band reunion.

“I could see a day where, myself, I could do shows with just Oasis songs​,” Noel said in a new interview conducted in Argentina, where he recently performed as part of the south American leg of Lollapalooza festival (via The Mirror).

However, his relationship with brother Liam remains distant with Noel not keen on provoking the kind of situation that led to their split in 2009: “​Liam is a very angry man still,” Gallagher is quoted as saying. “So he is not cool. He tends to make the easiest things really difficult.​”

Instead, Noel is happy to continue alone with his High Flying Birds backing band. “There might come a day, one day, where it [Oasis reunion] might seem like a good idea, but I have so much I want to do on my own.”


Oasis parted ways in 2009, with rumours of a potential reunion circulating earlier this year. However, earlier this year Noel said that there is only a one per cent chance of the band reforming.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds released latest album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ in 2015. The band will be back on the road in April with a tour that begins in Glasgow at the SSE Hydro on April 21 and culminates at the end of the month at Bournemouth’s BIC. The band also play dates in Aberdeen, Liverpool, Leeds and Birmingham. Super Furry Animals support on all dates except in Bournemouth.

A summer of festival dates will follow.
