Former Oasis rocker Liam Gallagher is set to embark on a major stadium tour to mark the 30th anniversary of Oasis’s first album – with or without brother Noel via Daily Mail. The rocker is to reunite with guitarist Bonehead, real name Paul Arthurs, for next summer’s shows, playing every track on 1994’s Definitely Maybe and other greatest hits.
It has been noted that a source close to Liam revealed he had committed himself to the tour, and while the door would be open for Noel to join, that possibility is ‘still a long way off as there are a lot of personal issues that need to be resolved’.
The Britpop band imploded in 2009 when the brothers fell out, but in recent months Liam, 51, has said he wants Noel, 56, to call him to make up. But Liam, who could net £10 million from the concerts, recently joked to friends: ‘Who needs Noel?!’
One source close to the Gallaghers confirmed: ‘Liam is convinced he can recreate the magic of the first Oasis album, whether or not Noel is with him on stage.
He’s played songs like Rock ‘n’ Roll Star with his new band and the crowd erupts.’ Wembley Stadium, Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium and Newcastle’s St James’ Park could host the anniversary gigs.
Sources said Liam, 51, became convinced he could tour alone after he sold out two nights at Knebworth last summer.
Noel Gallagher recently talked about the prospect of an Oasis reunion in the future. The beef between the Gallagher brothers, Liam and Noel Gallagher is no secret. The split of Oasis certainly shocked the fans back in the day. In 2009, the band parted ways immediately following a backstage tiff in Paris.
Tension had been brewing in the time building up to their scheduled performance at Rock en Seine festival. The weekend prior, Oasis pulled out of headlining V Festival because Liam Gallagher was suffering from laryngitis, and rumors floated about their tumultuous relationship. It was also recently noted that Liam Gallagher has teased starting a new band with his brother Noel Gallagher and his son in a new tweet. This would definitely excite fans. Noel also revealed his price for a reunion.
