Oasis Are Not Reuniting for Glastonbury
3
On Thursday, Liam Gallagher caused quite the ruckus when he tweeted "OASIS," prompting rumors that the band would be reuniting for Glastonbury this summer. In fact, speculation was so rampant that UK bookmakers went as far to suspend betting on the band headlining the festival.

But now, as Consequence of Sound, it appears all for nought, as Glastonbury head Emily Eavis has publicly denied that Liam and Noel Gallagher will reunite for the festival. "Oasis aren't playing this year," she wrote in response to a fan on Twitter.

It remains unclear what Gallagher meant by his cryptic tweet. Former Oasis guitarist Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs theorized to NME that Gallagher could have simply been referencing their recent outing together, explaining, "Probably the fact that I texted him going, 'Meet me in the beer garden'. That probably rattled his cage. Maybe that. I don't know though, because I meet him every f--king month. Maybe he's just reminiscing."

It's worth noting that Liam owns the name "Oasis" and could reunite the band without the participation of his brother. As Stereogum points out, Liam doesn't appear to be uncomfortable by the idea, as he considered using it for his solo project before going with Beady Eye. "We're not using [the Oasis name] at the moment," said Liam, "but if we don't come up with something else by the time we're ready to release the album it'll be Oasis. I'm not going to call myself something ridiculous just for the sake of it."

    Why does he look older than guys that have been in bands for over 30 years.

    Am I the only one here who doesn't want an Oasis reunion? High Flying Birds' debut and the new Beady Eye album are far better than any Oasis album since the early 90's.

    Whatever man, it would be pretty cool to see Oasis on the stage again. Glastonbury would've been the perfect stage for their return. Too bad.

    Ah, I can taste the tears of thousands of Oasis fangirls on twitter crying that the Gallaghers aren't going to serenade them all with "Wonderwall" at Glastonbury...
