Liam Gallagher at Glastonbury

Oasis rumoured to headline Glastonbury 2019 as Liam Gallagher forgives brother

20th July 2018 Off By

Liam Gallagher last night offered brother Noel an unexpected apology via Twitter, telling the other half of Oasis that it’s time to “get the BIG O back together.”

The shocking, if perhaps long-awaited gesture, sent social media into overdrive as bookmakers slashed odds on an Oasis set at Glastonbury 2019.

Liam told Noel that he forgives him after deriding Noel’s recent ‘alcohol-free gigs’ as the ‘ BeZarest‘ thing he’s done yet.

Rumours of Oasis reforming at Glastonbury surface every year. Both Liam and Noel were at Glastonbury 2017, but despite both performing ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger,’ they did so independently.

Liam Gallagher performed a Saturday afternoon set to an absolutely packed Other Stage, whilst Noel was part of a Q&A session before an Oasis documentary screening.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes have this morning slashed odds on an Oasis Glastonbury headline set to 5/2 as fans wait for Noel Gallagher to respond to Liam’s gesture.

The Manchester band have yet to play together since falling out in 2009, having previously played the Glasto’s Pyramid Stage in 2004. The row supposedly began after Liam threw a plum at his brother’s head.

They have traded insults publicly since 2009, frequently in their live performances and on social media.

Whilst the rumour mill is certainly at full speed this morning, it’s likely the Glastonbury 2019 headliners have been confirmed for some time now.

And as any rumoured Oasis reunion is long from being confirmed, Glasto organisers are unlikely to be waiting on the brothers to sort out their spat before confirming their headliners.

If Oasis were to reform and play a massive reunion show in the short term future, it would likely be their own single event. The official Manchester City Twitter account were quick to reply to Liam’s tweet, suggesting a homecoming gig at City’s Etihad Stadium.

Meanwhile, Essex Live are reporting that RiZE Festival ticket-holders are hoping Liam’s headline slot this August will become an impromptu Oasis reunion.

Liam followed up his tweet somewhat defensively, stating “I’m not desperate just think it’d be a nice thing to do.”

He then told another critic the decision is not financially motivated, saying that he’d “do it for nowt me it’s not all about the money honey.”

After a couple of hours without a response from his brother Noel, Liam posted this tweet.

However, Liam took to Twitter again this morning, still without any public response from his brother, suggesting that he’ll take Noel’s silence as a refusal.
