Noel Gallagher answers fans on possibility of Oasis ever getting back together
| Last updated
Noel Gallagher has answered the question that's been on fans' lips since the late 00s – will Oasis ever get back together again? Take a look:
Ever since the band's split in 2009, Noel and his brother Liam have gone on to embark on their own solo musical careers.
Though the hit-making band is long gone, their feud has showed no signs of slowing over the years, with the pair continuing to share relentless jibes at each other.
It's a sad state of affairs for the thousands of fans out there who hope to see the Gallaghers dropping their resentments and reuniting for some new shows and perhaps even a few new tunes.
There's been little hope of this ever happening, although Noel did open up on the topic in a recent interview with the Pub Talk podcast.
In the clip, former footballer and host Ray Parlour asks the singer-songwriter whether we'll ever see Oasis again, to which he replies, "It would have to be a set of extraordinary circumstances."
So you're saying there's a chance...?
But just as fans begin to get their hopes up, Noel says, "I don't like going back over things. I always say to people, 'Would you go on holiday with your ex missus?'"
After a bit of banter, he adds, "Funny as this sounds, Oasis sell as many records now per year as we did when we were together.
"We're as popular now in the eyes of the people as we ever were, and I'm happy with it.
"If we got back together it would be a circus and there's no point. Just leave it as it is. I'm happy, he's doing his thing, he's f**king selling out Knebworth, it's like, 'Mate, good luck to you.'"
In short, it doesn't look like we'll be seeing Oasis back together for the next festival circuit – unless, that is, a set of 'extraordinary circumstances' come into play.
Hats off to Noel for congratulating his brother despite their ongoing feud, something the fans praised him for in the comments.
Twitter page Mainly Oasis shared the clip, writing: "Love the compliment to Liam selling out Knebworth at the end. Well done Noel.
"There's still some part of Noel that wants the reunion and you can clearly see it in this clip."
Elsewhere, the singer's answer has divided opinion, with one writing: "They could just do a few gigs and leave it be. They wouldn't need to get back together or release a new album."
On the other side of the fence, one said: "He’s right, it would be a complete circus.
"Massive gigs with modern audiences - people talking through the set, sound volume limitations, phones, open to brutal reviews on social media.
"I think he’s right to keep away, he’s still got a lot to give as an artist."
But the award for best comment goes to the following: "This is a definitely maybe…." Nice.
