Noel Gallagher has rejected a 2021 Oasis reunion tour, saying he “doesn’t feel like it.”
“The legacy of the band is set in stone,” he told Australia’s The Project TV show. “If people have seen us, they’ll understand what all the fuss is about. If you didn’t see us, then that’s tough cos I’ve never seen The Beatles or the Sex Pistols.”
“People ask me that question on a daily basis and I can only say to you that, I just don’t feel like it. When you’re in a band, it’s an absolute compromise so no I don’t think I could come up with an idea and then run it by four people and then six weeks later, somebody knocks it back because their cat’s got a cough so I like to march to the beat of my own drum. Oasis is done I’m afraid.”
“It’s not ever me that starts the conversation. Other people are fascinated by it, which is fascinating to me. But other than that I don’t really have a great deal to say about it.”
Noel was also interviewed on the Sky Arts show The Live Revival, discussing the closure of many iconic music venues due to the pandemic.
“There has been no sign of anybody saying anything about the f****** music business,” he says. “It’s all about f****** sport, or hanging out in parks… What about the f****** music?
“Music is of the upmost importance – people live and breathe it.”
