Rumours of an Oasis reunion have been given a shot in the arm despite comments by Noel Gallagher that any reunion would not involve himself. A short video posted to the band’s social media channels has teased something set for 9:00am (presumably GMT) 26th February.
The clip features a series of images depicting the Gallagher brothers’ rise to fame, which has led many to speculate that 9:00am 26th February will bring news of a band reunion to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the group’s landmark debut album, Definitely Maybe, which many hoped for.
While some fans have responded with glee and even masochism (“I’d give my left bollock for a ticket if Oasis did a reunion tour”) at the possibility of an end to the feud between the warring Gallagher brothers, more level-headed fans are expecting the announcement of a Definitely Maybe reissue.
A subsequent post to the group’s social media accounts of a vinyl copy of the album spinning on a record player does seem to indicate that an anniversary re-release of the band’s iconic debut set for this August is more than likely the cause for the mysterious and rather tantalising video.
However, despite Noel reportedly turning down a £20 million offer to reunite with the band for an anniversary tour and repeatedly quashing reunion rumours, Beady Eye, the Liam Gallagher-led Oasis offshoot, appear to have been removed from the Coachella festival’s lineup page.
While the band still appears on the poster on the home page of the Coachella site, their current omission from the lineup page has some speculating that they will be replaced by an Oasis reunion. Coachella has had several bands reunite to play the festival, including the Pixies and Pulp.
