Liam Gallagher has recently been talking about it a lot and insisting that he’s ready for it, but Noel seems to be having absolutely none of it after recent success and a Mercury Prize nomination for his stuff with the High Flying Birds. One set of people that to do think it looks like it might be on the horizon though are the bookies, with Boylesports reckoning that it might be happening next year and if not then definitely in 2020:
A Summer 2019 gig at Slane would coincide with the 25 anniversary of the release of the first Oasis album but given the sibling rivalry in recent years, it’s only a Definite Maybe at this stage at 5/1.We actually have them at half that price to headline in 2020 and the punters seem to believe that is a more realistic timescale for a thawing in relations.
I mean make of that what you will, but it seems inevitable that the band will get together for one last payday at some point because well, they’ll probably be the biggest shows that this country has ever seen – maybe even the world. And you know that’s enough to make the two Gallagher brothers put aside their differences for a few hours.
