Will Oasis reunite in 2022?

So far, there's absolutely no sign of Oasis reuniting, but it doesn't stop Liam Gallagher talking about the possibility.

In a recent interview with The Sunday Times Liam Gallagher said that Oasis "should never have split up," and even said he wouldn't mind getting the band back together.

"If it happens, it happens," he told the outlet. "But I’m quite happy doing [my solo career]."

However, last month, the Everything's Electric singer was far more decisive. Taking to Twitter on 20th January, Liam also wrote: "And just a heads up oasis ain’t reforming not this Wk anyway LG x"

What else has Liam said about a reunion?

What hasn't Liam said? Fans would be forgiven for holding out hope about an Oasis reunion, since Liam Gallagher has often teased fans about whether he wants it to happen over the years.

In 2020, the Wall Of Glass singer caused a stir when he claimed he and Noel had been offered the huge sum of £100 million to reunite, but his brother declined. Noel later denied the claims.

Taking to Twitter Liam wrote: "Wahey we’re getting back together Noel Gallagher being minted and rich as f*** he’s doing it for nothing me being a desperate c*** and have f*** all else going for himself I’m doing it for the cash c’mon you know LG x".

He then added: "We’ve been offered 100 million pounds for a tour still not enough for the greedy soul oh well stay young LG".

That's not the only time Liam seemed up for a reunion recently. In May 2021, asked by a fan on Twitter how hopeful he is about performing with his ex bandmates once again, he replied: "More than ever".

Clearly the Paper Crown singer was in a good mood that day as he reached out to his estranged brother on his 53rd birthday, writing: "Happy birthday Rkid have a good 1 love you long time LG x".

Liam's teasing didn't stop there last year. Taking to Twitter on Sunday 7th June, the Liam also claimed Oasis had "unfinished business".

It's not immediately clear what Liam was referring to when praising The Verve, but he sure got his followers talking about Oasis once again.

Most recently, Liam took part in in Esquire's What I've Learned feature and gave some thoughts on his life and career so far.

Talking about the possibility of reuniting, he said: "I like to think Oasis will get back together, but not this week".

He added: "The door is ajar on everything. I wouldn’t be surprised if space aliens landed tomorrow. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were already here."

What has Noel said about an Oasis reunion?

Noel Gallagher has been resoundingly against an Oasis reunion saying he purely doesn't "feel like" it.

Asked about the chance of a reunion last May, he told Australia's The Project on Channel 10: "The legacy of the band is set in stone. 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."

The Ballad of the Mighty I singer added: "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."

However, Noel did joke in the same year that he'd do it for "£100 million," but only because believes the money would never materialise.

Asked on The Jonathan Ross Show about Liam's claims, he said: "Why do you say 'It's not necessarily untrue?' Because it is untrue. There isn't £100m in the music business between all of us".

He added: "If anybody wants to offer me £100 million now, I'll say it now, I'll do it. I'll do it for £100 million.

"Ludicrous. What is funny though is that I think Liam actually believes it, which is the funny thing."

In fact, Noel even thinks Oasis are only "up there with the greats" because they split.

As reported by Sky News, speaking on Sky Arts programme Noel Gallagher: Out Of The Now, the Manchester rocker said audiences had grown bored of the band during their final months.

"It's not a decision I took lightly," he said of his decision to leave. "And I'd written every meaningful song that was ever recorded by Oasis. And it was my life, I directed it and creatively it was my thing. With the benefit of hindsight it was the best thing for me and for the band.

"Because the band now, Oasis back in 2009 were not lauded as one of the greats of all time. There was a kind of undercurrent of, 'well they should really call it a day'. That's what I felt anyway.

"And I felt that people had stopped listening to the records and were coming to see us trot out the hits and it's a position I never wanted the band to be in. But now of course we're seen as up there with all the greats."

Do Oasis fans want a reunion?

It might surprise you to know that a recent poll found most Oasis fans do NOT want the Manchester band to get back together.

According to a survey conducted by Betfair Casino on 2000 Brits, Liam and Noel Gallagher need not worry about burying the hatchet because 60% of Brits don't want to see the Manchester band reunite anyway.
