Oasis is at the Top of Glastonbury’s Wish List


Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis revealed the headliners for the 2016 festival have already been booked. Although the headliners won’t be revealed until next year, fans are hopeful Oasis are among the performers. A recent poll by NME readers voted for Oasis as the band they would like to see at Glastonbury 2016. Despite the fact that Noel Gallagher said it would take an insane amount of money for him to reunite with his former band, that hasn’t stopped Oasis fans from keeping the dream alive that the band will one day perform a reunion concert. In January of this year, Noel was specifically asked if the band would reunite for Glastonbury. “Would I do it for charity? No way. We’re not that kind of people. For Glastonbury? I don’t think [founder] Michael Eavis has enough money,” Gallagher told Q magazine. During his interview with the magazine, Noel also stated that Oasis’ glory days are over, and a reunion show may damage the band’s legacy.

Even Paul McCartney spoke about the ongoing feud between brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher. The legend believes it’s time for the brothers to finally bury the hatchet. “Just get together and make some good music. But they have to want to do it. I think a lot of people would like them to do that. They are pretty cool guys,” McCartney stated. The constant fighting between Noel and Liam hit its limit six years ago, and Oasis disbanded in 2009. Even though Liam supported his brother by attending one of his shows this year, it doesn’t seem the gesture did anything to repair their relationship. Last month, Noel commented on Zayn Malik’s decision to leave One Direction, which prompted Liam to chime in his thoughts. Noel’s comments didn’t sit well with Liam, and so he went on social media in an effort to address his brother’s comments. “Hey NG, leave those 1d [One Direction] kids alone,” Liam tweeted. The social media message is more proof that the brothers aren’t on speaking terms, otherwise Liam would have just called his brother to express his concerns.

Noel Gallagher‘s High Flying Birds were formed two years after Oasis split. The band has released two albums including their self-titled project and their most recent effort, Chasing Yesterday. Chasing Yesterday peaked at Number 1 in the UK, Scotland, and Ireland. Three singles were dropped from the project including “In the Heat of the Moment,” “Ballad of the Mighty I,” and “Riverman.”
