Liam Gallagher recently said an Oasis reunion will be happening “very f***ing soon” but his brother and ex-bandmate Noel Gallagher has brushed the comment off. Despite Noel’s insistence the group are not set for a comeback, bookies have cut odds on a reunion in a move which will delight die-hard fans.
Where an Oasis reunion in 2020 was previously priced at 3/1, Coral have trimmed the odds to just 6/4.
“Oasis fans will be hoping the Gallagher brothers will put their differences aside this year and reform as a band,” the bookies’ John Hill told Express.co.uk.
“This latest gamble may well be a big sign that there is a good chance that will happen in 2020.”
The odds aren’t looking too bad on the Gallagher brothers reconciling and releasing a brand new album either, with the bookies pricing it at 4/1.
If that wasn’t enough of a good sign for Oasis fans, they’re also 2/1 to play Glastonbury 2020 and 5/1 to kickstart a stadium tour in September.
“Many punters believe the boys will make their comeback official at Glastonbury with a performance at the music festival,” the spokesman told Express.co.uk.
“We have also taken bets on them to release a new album in 2020 and start a stadium tour in September.”
Though bookies are looking increasingly confident an Oasis reunion is on the cards, Noel remains determined to quash any speculation.
“There was a responsibility to everyone else, and some people in the band were very conservative in their views of rock music,” he told the publication.
“The longer you stay in a band like that, the more you become institutionalised – the way things are done is the way things are done.
“You’re making music for your surroundings, so you just make music to fill stadiums and, when it’s great, it’s the greatest thing ever,” he continued. “But it got to the point where I’d said it all and done it all.”
Meanwhile, Liam has also spoken out about what it would take to make a reunion successful.
“You never know, it might be great and it might be s**t,” he told Rolling Stone. “It could go either way.
“I think for us to get back together just for the money and just to do a tour… we’ve got to become mates again, you know what I mean?” he added.
“If we become mates again then it’ll be the best thing since sliced bread. But if we do it without becoming mates again I think it would be a f***ing waste of time.”
Liam quipped that he wouldn’t make it through the first chorus of Rock N’ Roll Star without “sticking it” to his brother if they didn’t mend their relationship before attempting to get the band back together.
