Could Liam and Noel reunite for the September 9th gig marking the re-opening of Manchester Arena?
Liam Gallagher just hinted at something that all Oasis fans have been desperate to hear for nearly a decade, suggesting that he might reconcile with his brother Noel to reunite the band for the re-opening of Manchester Arena next month.
The 21,000 capacity venue is due to re-open its doors in the coming weeks, with a star-studded benefit concert including Pixie Lott, Courteeners and Blossoms on September 9th to mark the official re-opening after the venue underwent refurbishment following the devastating terrorist attack back in May that claimed the lives of 22 fans at an Ariana Grande show.
Noel Gallagher’s solo project, The High Flying Birds, are topping the bill on the night, but Oasis fans quizzed his younger brother on why he wasn’t playing the show. The former Oasis frontman tweeted on Saturday (August 19th) that he could still appear at the gig - if he was asked.

Noel and his band the High Flying Birds will top a star-studded benefit gig on September 9th as Manchester Arena re-opens.
Noel Gallagher is to headline a benefit gig marking the re-opening of Manchester Arena next month, the venue which was devastated by a terrorist attack back in May.
50 year old Gallagher and his backing band the High Flying Birds will re-open the Arena on Saturday, September 9th after refurbishment work was carried out. Other big stars in the shape of Courteeners, Blossoms and Pixie Lott will be a part of a stellar bill titled We Are Manchester, which will raise funds for the same memorial fund as the benefit gig back on June 4th.
It will be the first gig at the Manchester Arena since the atrocity that occurred back on May 22nd, when a terrorist detonated a suicide vest in the foyer of the venue as fans left Ariana Grande’s concert, killing 22 and injuring scores more.

Famous rocker Steve Earle has calls Noel Gallagher ''the most overrated songwriter ever'' and praised Damon Albarn.
The 'Copperheard Road' hitmaker has slammed the Oasis legend's lyrical ability and thinks his band rocketed to fame in the 1990s because they ''behaved badly'', but hailed fellow British musician Damon Albarn - who sang and penned tracks in rival group Blur - a ''real f**king songwriter''.
He told The Guardian newspaper: ''I dislike Man City because it is Oasis's club. Noel Gallagher is the most overrated songwriter in the whole history of pop music. They were perfect for the Brit press because they behaved badly and got all the attention. Blur were really great. That guy Damon Albarn is a real f**kin' songwriter.''

It's emerged that Noel started donating royalties from the 1996 track to the One Love Manchester fund as soon as it started being sung at vigils.
Amid a barrage of abuse from his younger brother Liam having not showed up to the recent One Love Manchester charity concert, Noel Gallagher has quietly done the classy thing by quietly donating royalties from ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ to the benefit fund.
The 50 year old guitarist and singer has reportedly been diverting the royalties from the 1996 Oasis hit since Manchester locals began using the song as an anthem of unity in the aftermath of the suicide bombing that struck Ariana Grande’s concert at MEN Arena just over a fortnight ago.
A couple of days after the atrocity back on May 22nd, video footage taken at the vigils that took place in Manchester showed spontaneous renditions of ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ being sung by attendees.
Noel hasn't invited any of the rest of his family to his 50th birthday party later this month, according to Liam.
Liam Gallagher has claimed that his older brother and former Oasis bandmate Noel has not invited him or any of his family, “not even his own mother”, to his upcoming 50th birthday party.
Noel Gallagher turns 50 year old on May 29th, and is believed to be throwing a ‘cocaine-themed’ party based around the hit Netflix series ‘Narcos’, of which the guitarist and former drug addict is reportedly a huge fan, according to The Sun.
Invites seen via his wife Sara McDonald’s Snapchat are mocked up in the style of the promotional posters for ‘Narcos’ and show Gallagher in the pose of drug baron Pablo Escobar, complete with the series’ strapline “There’s no business like blow business.”
Noel Gallagher has been described as a ''chippy bloke'' who shows slight elements of wisdom by Russell Brand.
The 41-year-old comedian has a long list of celebrity pals, including the former Oasis band member, who he believes is a ''normal'' person, and will occasionally show a hint of ''wisdom'' when the air are together.
Speaking to NME magazine about the musician, the 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' actor said: ''Sometimes he's just a normal, quite chippy bloke from Manchester, but t other times you glimpse his wisdom.''

Damon Albarn insists he has ''no agenda'' with Gorillaz and loves that they can record anything and make it work.
The 49-year-old singer loves the fact his animated band are able to adapt to whatever he is writing or whatever musical direction he is keen to explore and insists it doesn't matter if their songs don't match up with collaborator JAMIE HEWLETT's drawings of band members 2D, Murdoc, Russel and Noodle.
He said: ''I don't think that matters.

Director Mat Whitecross claims that the recently released documentary movie 'Supersonic' has made things worse between Noel and Liam.
Despite the resounding critical and commercial success, the recently released Oasis documentary movie Supersonic has actually made the rivalry between the Gallagher brothers worse, according to its director.
Mat Whitecross, who helmed the project, revealed that when he gave a preview screening to former frontman Liam Gallagher, he threw popcorn at the screen every time his brother Noel appeared.

There were a number of defining bands of the 90's but Oasis were indisputably one of the biggest. Having formed in 1991, brothers Liam and Noel both had a great desire to be in the biggest band in the world, but the thought behind that was perhaps a little more basic; they wanted to make music. Though Noel was a relatively late member of Oasis, after he joined he became the main songwriter and the band focussed on recording the songs he'd previously written.
Touring the county with little money, the boys were offered a gig in Glasgow at King Tut's Wah Wah and made the journey from Manchester up to the Scottish town. Upon arrival, it was touch and go as to if the Mancunian's would even get to play but eventually they managed to get an opening slot for the night's proceedings and they immediately caught the attention of Alan Mcgee who asked them to sign to his label there and then. McGee's deal with the band would come to fruition some months later when he secured the UK rights to releasing the group's music.
By 1994 Oasis would have recorded a number of demos and they were finally ready to release their official debut single 'Supersonic' which would reach the dizzying heights of number 31 in the UK Singles Chart - which for a group yet to make names for themselves was actually pretty good!

No Oasis documentary movie could be complete without the following.
Any Oasis fans who happened to see the powerful documentary film Amy earlier this year will have been delighted by the news that the team behind it is to make a piece about the Mancunian Britpop legends.
Asif Kapadia, who directed the Winehouse doc, is taking a production role on the as-yet-untitled project, with the rest of his team assisted director Mat Whitecross, himself having made the fictional Stone Roses-centred movie Spike Island and the Ian Dury biopic Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll.
With “unprecedented access” granted to the Oasis archives, we can hope for a ton of unreleased footage and music as the film-makers chart the entire history of the group. However, here are ten milestones in Oasis’ history that should definitely be included.

This came in response to Gallagher's latest broadside aimed at modern pop stars, on whom fame is apparently "wasted".
Earlier this week, 48 year old Gallagher had taken aim at the new generation of chart acts – as history tells us he is prone to do from time to time – telling Esquire in a lengthy rant that everybody except Kanye West was boring and didn’t deserve the trappings that come with their fame and fortune.

Their relationship has been non-existent since Oasis's 2009 split, but they'll be co-operating for the upcoming documentary about their ex-group directed by Mat Whitecross.
More details about the upcoming Oasis documentary film being produced by the makers of Amy, as both Noel and Liam Gallagher have offered their co-operation to the project and will both feature in the movie. It’s unlikely that they’ll appear together, but we can live in hope.
The two brothers were the sole constant members of the often turbulent Britpop giants, whose commercial fortunes peaked in the mid ‘90s but whose popularity endured until their eventual disintegration in Paris in August 2009. They have not worked together since and are believed not to have had any contact at all, though they have occasionally fired pot-shots at each other through the press.

Asif Kapadia will direct a feature-length documentary on the band, charting their rise to fame.
Asif Kapadia, the director of award wining documentaries Senna and Amy has chosen Oasis as his next subject. Kapadia and James Gay-Rees will produce a feature-length documentary on the 90s Britpop band that will “chart the journey from the moment in 1991 when Noel joined his brother Liam’s band”.
Oasis will be the subject of a new documentary by Asif Kapadia.
According to Screen Daily, “the filmmakers have been given ‘unprecedented’ access to the band and unseen archive footage and the film will include candid insight from the famously stormy brothers”. The film will be directed by Mat Whitecross, who previously worked on Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll and Spike Island.

A book and DVD will also be available, and don't miss them on tour in November.
Reverend & The Makers are back already with their fifth studio album 'Mirrors'; and it's so good, even hard-to-please Noel Gallagher has some positive words to say about it. The musical project also incorporates other medias, including a DVD and book release this Autumn.
Reverend & The Makers to launch their creative project 'Mirrors'
'Mirrors' is a forthcoming concept album which the Sheffield indie five-piece recorded partly at the local 2 Fly Studios, and also in Jamaica's Geejam Studios. It has been produced by the band's former guitarist Dave Sanderson alongside Alan Smyth (Pulp, Arctic Monkeys) with mixing from Youth. The epic first track entitled 'Black Widow' will be available immediately with all album pre-orders. A psychedelic number featuring exotic drums, scuzzy guitars and drowned out vocals, it's the perfect hazy summer anthem to bring the sun into the Fall.
The Oasis guitarist has previously criticised Jay-Z’s Tidal streaming service.
Noel Gallagher has made his feelings pretty clear regarding Apple’s new streaming service ‘Apple Music'. The former Oasis member has called Apple’s latest venture ‘arrogant’ and added that the service's radio feature was ‘some sort of George Orwell shit’
Noel Gallagher has not signed up for his Apple Music trial.
Speaking to the Varvet International podcast Gallagher said, “Apple Music, world radio: is that some sort of George Orwell shit going on? How can you be so arrogant that you can say, ‘We now fucking own world radio.’”

Noel was surprised by how much he enjoyed the first half an hour of Kanye's Glastonbury set.
One of the most forthright men in the music industry gave his opinion on another in a new interview – and the result was rather surprising. Despite not being a hip-hop aficionado, Noel Gallagher has given his reaction to Kanye West’s much-discussed Glastonbury headline set, describing his performance as “f***ing amazing” – for about half an hour.
The former Oasis songwriter memorably looked a bit silly back in 2008 when he dismissed Jay-Z’s booking – the first ever hip-hop headliner at Glastonbury – only for the rapper to put in a blinding performance. Now, while Kanye has proved rather more divisive, Gallagher admits that he was initially impressed, though he eventually lost interest through not being a fan of the genre.
Noel Gallagher really enjoyed Kanye West's Glastonbury performance - for a bit
Gallagher sounded off again about Zayn's departure from 1D almost three months ago on James Corden's 'The Late, Late Show'.
Noel Gallagher has spoken out on Zayn Malik’s departure from One Direction in a new interview, expressing disbelief at the star’s choice not to tough it out with the group as, in his view, they have “at most, five years left”.
The former Oasis songwriter was talking to James Corden on ‘The Late, Late Show’ on Monday night, and said that he failed to grasp why Zayn would choose to quit the band when the group had a limited lifespan in any case. “I can't understand why he would do it,” he said, “because they've only got, at most, five years left.”

This is a reference to Noel Gallagher's criticism that modern pop stars and bands seem to be very focussed on their careers.
He’s one of the biggest musical acts in the world today and could be forgiven for living a life of excess, but Ed Sheeran is determined to keep his feet on the ground and not let his career slide away.
During a new interview with the Big Issue, Sheeran addressed Noel Gallagher’s infamous recent criticism of new artists being “careerists” and too focussed on the financial side of their music, and it would seem that he takes the label as a compliment.

Ospreys are reported to have built a nest within the noise disturbance 'buffer zone' that the law is required to enforce, leaving T In The Park hanging in the balance.
The annual T In The Park festival in Scotland is under threat of cancellation if the local council for its proposed new site at Strathallan Castle in Perthshire fails to approve its application.
Opposition to the move from environmental protestors has been gathering momentum following a recent report that nesting ospreys had arrived within a proposed 2,500 feet ‘buffer zone’ designed by law to protect such species.
Kasabian are set to headline T In The Park - but will it even go ahead?

The bands join Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds in Clapham Common this July.
Modest Mouse and Wolf Alice are the latest additions to the steadily growing line-up for Calling Festival 2015; a day festival that will see thousands flock to Clapham Common in London this summer to experience the latest and greatest in rock music.
Washington six-piece Modest Mouse and North Londoners Wolf Alice hit the Calling bill alongside the likes of headliners Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, and previously announced Ryan Adams and the Shining, The Hives, and Echo And The Bunnymen. The multi-stage festival is still to see further exciting line-up announcements in the coming weeks; the bill so far barely scrapes the surface of what to expect at this extraordinary event, which last year played host to more than 80,000 festival goers who congregated to experience Stevie Wonder and Aerosmith.

The 'Left Hand Free' hitmakers were singled out for criticism by the former Oasis man during an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this week. Both artists are due to headline Latitude Festival later this year.
The former Oasis man let rip at the band, who topped the album charts last year with their second album This Is All Yours, in an interview with Rolling Stone. He said that he was “in no way a fan of Alt-J” and that, despite buying their track ‘Left Hand Free’, said they could “f**k right off as far as I’m concerned.” When he was asked why, he replied: “I don't know. One of them's got a moustache, and that's unacceptable.”

Noel Gallagher doesn't regard Taylor Swift as a credible songwriter.

Noel Gallagher has taken aim at Taylor Swift, One Direction and Ed Sheeran
When the interviewer mentioned Swift's knack for songwriting, Gallagher went on the attack, "Who says that? Her parents."

Having previously slated him, the outspoken former Oasis star has seemingly changed his mind about Ed Sheeran.
Noel Gallagher seems to have reversed his stance on Ed Sheeran, having previously described the ‘Sing’ star headlining Wembley as symptomatic of a world he couldn’t bear to live in. In a new interview with Shortlist, however, he was asked about his issues with Sheeran and replied “I won’t hear a word against him.”
So why the reversal? Normally when the former Oasis songwriter has a beef with someone, it rumbles on for years. Just ask Damon Albarn. But it appears that Gallagher’s change of heart is down to Sheeran following up on a promise to perform at the Teenage Cancer Trust show in the future.
Noel Gallagher has changed his mind about Ed Sheeran
T's new Perthshire home will welcome a group of amazing acts.
Amazing acts have been announced to perform at this year's T In The Park including Kasabian, Avicii and Fatboy Slim. Despite notorious festivals to match up to, it is looking very likely that this year that T in the Park will blow people away.
T in the Park has moved to it new home in the grounds of Strathallan Castle. Organisers DF Concerts and Tennent's Lager are ecstatic about the festival's first year here, playing host to 85,000 fans this summer. Festival Director Geoff Ellis said: 'This year is going to be a very special one for T in the Park as we make the beautiful grounds of Strathallan Castle our new home, and we're thrilled that some of the biggest artists in the world will be joining us in this historic first year.'

Noel Gallagher is not impressed with leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage
Noel Gallagher has dismissed Nigel Farage's chances of being Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, saying the UKIP leader is "mentally capable of running a corner shop, far less a f*cking country." In an interview with The Quietus, the singer-songwriter took swipes at the country's political leaders and tipped Boris Johnson to be the next PM.
Noel Gallagher says Farage is "mentally incapable" of running the country
"I'm not into politics any more, I don't read about it," he said, "These days, my own view is that if they truly, truly wanted to f*cking better the lives of the people, surely they must all realise that a little bit of conservatism married with a little bit of socialism, married with a little bit of fucking UKIP and a little bit of Green and a little bit of Lib Democrats would be kind of perfect."
The musician confesses 2013 was a hell of a year for his health.
Noel Gallagher thought he'd seen the worst of his health troubles with his years of substance and alcohol abuse, but he's now revealed that he was on the verge of death following his first High Flying Birds arena tour. There wasn't too much high hope for Noel Gallagher's post-Oasis career to reach the heights of his 90s glory, but when Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds reached number one with their self-titled debut album in 2011, they were propelled immediately into huge venues and impressive festival slots. However, returning to the stage and taking a much more frontal role took it's toll on Gallagher's health by 2013 in more ways than one.
Noel Gallagher on the brink of death with poor health
'It was awful,' he explained in an interview with The Telegraph. 'I had glandular fever, then I went for my annual health check-up and, honest to God, I felt all right when I went in, and the doctor made me feel like I was about to drop dead in the street when I came out.
The festival brings some exemplary headliners to the Netherlands this Summer.
The Netherlands' Best Kept Secret Festival won't be a secret for long if they keep introducing stellar acts such as this each year! The first line-up announcement includes Alt-J, The Libertines and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.
Joining the third line-up for Best Kept Secret this June is some of the finest indie, rock, punk and electronic artists the world has to over, with 35 more acts yet to be announced. Alongside newly reunited headliners The Libertines on Friday, June 19th 2015 are alt-rock veterans The Jesus And Mary Chain, playing the full tracklist of their 1985 debut album 'Psychocandy'. Aussie chart topper Chet Faker will also make an appearance, with Alabama's St. Paul & The Broken Bones who are currently on their 'Half The City' tour.
The singer was supported by Ryan Keen at the Assago Forum show.
Language barriers weren't a problem for Ed Sheeran and his Italian fans as he hit the Assago Forum in Milan on Tuesday (January 27th 2015) as part of the European leg on his 'x Tour' to an adoring crowd that loved every minute of his epic setlist.
Ed Sheeran hit Milan during his X Tour
The red-haired popstar performed tracks from both his acclaimed debut album '+' as well as his latest album 'X' which went multi-Platinum upon its release in June last year topping charts in both the UK and US and impressing critics with various gems such as 'Sing' and 'Thinking Out Loud'.

Liam Gallagher and Beady Eye took to the stage at Glastonbury at 11am, though still drew a sizable crowd.
Liam Gallagher and his band Beady Eye played an unbilled set at the Glastonbury Festival on Friday morning (June 28, 2013), officially opening three days of music set to be headlined by Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones and Mumford & Sons. The show took place on The Other Stage at the rather early time of 11am, though thousands made the journey from their soaked tents to watch the former Oasis man.

Though Beady Eye's show did not feature in the programme, frotman Liam has dropped a major hint earlier in the week, tweeting, "11am Friday - BE there or BE square.LG," while photographs showed the band travelling to Glastonbury on the train. Gallagher had always vowed never to return to the Pilton site following his former band's headlining set in 2004, telling The Sun, "The sound is s*** and really quiet. You can hear the crowd talking while you're playing.It's like Bond Street with mud, with loads of celebrities walking around in their boots and umbrellas. I'm not having it."

Liam Gallagher was rumoured to be playing Glastonbury, and duly opened the festival on Friday morning.
Liam Gallagher was given the enviable job of opening the 2013 Glastonbury Festival with a surprise set on The Other Stage on Friday morning (June 28, 2013). The singer, who aired his dismay for the festival following his former band Oasis' set in 2004, arrived on-stage and immediately launched into Flick of the Finger, a recent single for Beady Eye.

The cloudy weather and early start did nothing to deter the famous Mancunian, who was on typically brash form. "It's never too early for a bit of Rock'n'Roll aggro, is it?" asked Gallagher as his new band launched into Morning Glory, an Oasis hit written by his brother Noel Gallagher.

Liam Gallagher returned to his own stomping ground to launch Beady Eye's new record this week.
Liam Gallagher was mobbed by Oasis and Beady Eye fans as he stepped off a train at Manchester Piccadilly on Tuesday (June 11, 2013) to launch his new album BE in his hometown. Liam - wearing his trademark mac, jeans and desert shoes combo - signed autographs and posed for photographs on the train platform before heading to HMV on Market Street to launch the record.
Busy commuters stopped in their tracks and pulled out smartphones as the Manchester legend paraded through the city centre. Later, Gallagher invited 100 fans to an after-party at his designer store Pretty Green on King Street, reports the Manchester Evening News.
"On my way to Manchester centre of the universe," Liam had tweeted earlier in the day, before arriving in the north-west with band mates Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock for an acoustic gig of tracks from the new album.
An unusual mixture of celebrities, Harry Styles, Noel Gallagher and Miles Kane are spotted among revellers at London's Groucho Club.
What do you get when you cross Harry Styles with Noel Gallagher and Miles Kane? Well, if you'd attended the Groucho Club last night you might've got some idea as the three of them were spotted enjoying a few drinks at the private members club. Though we're still not sure if they even spoke to each other, the thought of them together is a little bizarre and not only because of the One Direction hunk being thrown into the mix, but also for High Flying Birds star Noel, who must've had the shock of his life when he spotted Miles Kane pulling up who bears a remarkable resemblance to Noel's estranged brother Liam Gallagher. The dapper suit and tie might've given the game away though, even if the hair is spot on.
Albums of Note... It’s been a long two years since James Blake released his debut eponymous album and now, the pioneering producer returns with Overgrown, album number two. Peppered with quality collaborations, with hip-hop legend RZA and electronic music’s figurehead Brian Eno, Overgrown is the sound of an artist still trying to find his niche, but releasing high quality, accomplished tracks, whilst he’s on his journey. “Blake really is a talent to behold, as his ingenious moulding together of poles apart genres and production wizardry clearly shows… when you're already as accomplished at all manner of musical exercises as he is then it will obviously be hard to focus all this talent and all this energy into one place.”
Splitting opinion like musical Marmite, John Grant returns with Pale Green Ghosts. This album may sound unrecognisable as Grant, to anyone already familiar with his work. He’s hooked up with Gus Gus’ Biggi Viera and has decamped to Reykjavik. As a result, a new reliance on vintage-sounding synthesisers and a nod to club-land has John Grant sounding like an altogether different proposition to the John Grant of days gone by.“Grant's dyspeptic edge may be blunted, but when called upon the man can make a fine ass post-modern disco song, like we ever doubted that he could, and Blackbelt is a tweaked remix away from the transient world of A Lists, charts and chat shows. Cleverly poignant, its way with knock out disses would give Jake Shears something to think about if it proved to be a permanent change of direction…”
Liam Gallagher mocked brother Noel on Twitter for singing "backing vocals" for Blue. (Blur)
Liam Gallagher has blasted his brother Noel for performing with former Blur arch rivals Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon over the weekend. Former Oasis songwriter Noel teamed up with the Britpop pair at the Teenage Cancer Trust concert on Saturday evening (March 23, 2013) prompting a fiery response from his younger sibling.
"Don't know what's worse RKID sipping champagne with a war criminal or them backing vocals you've just done for BLUE ! LG x (sic)" tweeted Liam, also referring to Noel's decision to meet with Tony Blair following his election as Prime Minister. Liam, 40, and Noel, 45, have barely spoken since the latter quit Oasis in August 2009 following a fight with his younger brother, though both trade barbed insults regularly through the press.
Noel, Damon and Graham provoked rapturous applause after arriving on-stage together at London's Royal Albert Hall, though the performance was somewhat marred by the fact Paul Weller was on drums. The Evening Standard said The Jam star played "as though he'd never seen a kit in his life."
