Since the minute Oasis split up in 2009 there have been looming questions over whether or not they'll reform.
In the swirling uncertainty of the band following a Noel and Liam Gallagher's bust up backstage at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris, LG, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock had already formed Beady Eye, and Noel had fucked off.
Noel went on to tour with his High Flying Birds, and still is, whereas Beady Eye called it a day after two albums, leading Liam to take up his own solo career.
Since the younger Gallagher brother returned to the forefront of music he hasn't hidden his desire to reconcile with Noel and get Oasis back together, though his efforts have been in vain.
Following the disastrous terror attack on their home city, at the Manchester Arena, Liam performed at the One Love charity concert, calling out his senior for not attending after so many thought they'd reunite.
This directed a lot of flak towards the guitarist, though it soon became apparent that he was donating all proceeds from 'Don't Look Back in Anger' to the families of the victims of the attack. He's since been announced as the headline act to reopen Manchester Arena on September 9.
WE ARE MANCHESTER.

He'll be joined by fellow Mancunians The Courteeners, Blossoms and Rick Astley for the We Are Manchester concert, but yet again it's Liam getting the attention.
After the announcement the 44-year-old took to Twitter to say that he'd love to be there, though he's performing in Spain on the same date.
He did say that it is only 'a hop, skip and a jump' though, which would mimic what he did for One Love, when he and his band jumped on a plane from Germany to play.
I would love to play that gig in MCR on sept 9th but I'm afraid I'm playing in Spain saying that though it's only a hop skip n a jump LG x

Of course there are stark differences to him appearing at this gig as he'd end up sharing the stage with Noel, which is what everyone's crying out for.
Even if it's just one song. Not 'Wonderwall', though, that's too much of cliche. Do 'Little James' instead, really troll the crowd.
Just make it happen.
