Bookies tip Oasis for 2017 reunion

Betway slash odds of Liam and Noel burying the hatchet to 5/4

An Oasis reunion tour could be getting closer, according to bookies who have slashed odds of the band reforming in the year ahead.

Bookmakers Betway claim that based around the release of the band’s upcoming documentary Supersonic and a reissue of their 1997 album ‘Be Here Now’, betting now points towards the return of Oasis in 2017.

“The betting suggests that 2017 is the most likely year for Oasis to get back together at 5/4,” said Betway’s Alan Alger. “But with the band’s biopic set to be released next month, some might say that our offer of 3/1 for Oasis to reform by the end of this year is good value.”

The odds currently show odds of 3/1 of the band getting back together before the end of 2016, with the same for them coming together again in 2018. There are 4/1 odds of them reforming in 2019 and 5/1 that we won’t see them back before 1 January 2020.

Supersonic will premiere in Manchester on Sunday 2 October, featuring a Q&A with Liam Gallagher. Read our review of the movie here. Meanwhile, the reissue of ‘Be Here Now’ is due on 7 October.

The film’s director Matt Whitecross said that making the movie left him convinced that an Oasis reunion ‘will happen’. However, the Gallagher brothers have often come to blows recently. Just last week Liam compared Noel to Ronnie Corbett and called him a ‘shit bag’.

Liam however, has confirmed the release of his debut solo album.
