'Don't Look Back In Anger' has re-entered the iTunes chart after a video of mourners singing it at a vigil in St. Ann's Square went viral.
Oasis’ hit song ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ is set to make a re-appearance in the charts this week, after it was adopted as an anthem of unity by the people of Manchester in the wake of the devastating terror attack that hit the city earlier this week.
Following the suicide bomb that claimed the lives of 22 people and injured 119 others on Monday night at the Ariana Grande concert at MEN Arena, the track has come to symbolise Manchester’s defiance and unity in the face of tragedy.
It touched the hearts of millions all over again this week when a video went viral of a crowd of mourners gathered in St. Ann’s Square in the city were seen singing the track, following a respectful minute’s silence.

The original 1996 movie's crew made the revelation at a Q&A session this week.
One of the reasons why the movie Trainspotting was so beloved back in 1996 was its soundtrack, full of stars from the contemporary world of Britpop such as Elastica, Pulp, Underworld and Leftfield. But one of the biggest names in music was missing: that of Oasis, the biggest name on the scene.
It turns out that the Manchester legends were offered the opportunity to record a track for the movies, but that Noel Gallagher turned it down because he presumed the film to actually be about trainspotters, rather than poverty-stricken heroin addicts in Edinburgh.

Speaking at the premiere of the Oasis documentary movie 'Supersonic', Liam claimed he'd be up for a reunion - but won't apologise to Noel to make it happen.
The 44 year old singer and former frontman of Oasis has said that the band should never have split up back in 2009, and said that his “bags are packed” in the event that he gets an offer to reunite with them.
He told Sky News at the launch of the new Oasis documentary movie Supersonic, directed by Mat Whitecross and released on Sunday (October 2nd): “If it happens tomorrow, I'm ready, my bags are packed. If it happens in a year, I'm still ready, if it happens in 10 years, I'm still ready.”
The brothers have been feuding for years and are unlikely to reunite anytime soon.

Noel got the chance to dine with one of his heroes in the South of France last month, but the recognition wasn't mutual.
Noel Gallagher has admitted that Hollywood legend Robert De Niro didn’t have a clue who he was when the pair ended up having lunch together in the South of France. Gallagher set next to the Taxi Driver star during what became a marathon eight-hour lunch session last month, but afterwards Gallagher said De Niro was still none the wiser about Oasis.
The former Oasis singer announced he'll be releasing a new album in 2017, his first new music since Beady Eye split three years ago.
In news that may placate those who are frustrated about the lack of an Oasis reunion, Liam Gallagher has announced that he’s signed a brand new record deal and will be releasing a new album in 2017 – describing the new material, in his inimitable style, as “chin-out music”.
The tambourine-shaking frontman, 43, announced that he has penned a deal with Warner Bros., and that his first official solo record will be out next year. It will be the first record he has released since 2013, when Beady Eye’s second album BE came out shortly before they split up.

The younger Gallagher brother took to Twitter this week to declare that "plastic rock n rollers" should "be afraid".
43 year old Liam has musically been silent for a while, ever since his first post-Oasis project Beady Eye disbanded in 2014 after only two albums. In his own, inimitable style, he took to Twitter on Wednesday night (July 21st) to fire a warning shot to “plastic rock n rollers” that he was coming back for what was rightfully his.
Liam Gallagher has teased a possible return to music
The former Oasis singer is said to finally be ready to go solo.
Liam Gallagher is said to be ready to make music again, nearly two years after his group Beady Eye disbanded. The frontman is reported to be heading to the studio to record his first solo music, after realising that an Oasis reunion with brother Noel is unlikely.
Liam Gallagher is said to be heading back to the studio.
A source told The Sun: ‘The penny has finally dropped with Liam. He can’t make any money sitting on his backside and with four kids to pay for, a divorce and a lavish lifestyle to keep up, extra cash will be handy.’

Oasis secured all of the top FOUR spots in the first ever Radio X 'Best of British' online poll.
In a revelation that will surprise precisely nobody, Oasis have thoroughly dominated a poll conducted by Radio X to discover the best British song of all time, securing not only the number one spot with ‘Wonderwall’ but also the rest of the top four.
There’s been plenty of scorn directed at the online poll, which has been run by the overwhelmingly white male-oriented station over the last week, as the now-defunct Manchester group had their songs ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’, ‘Champagne Supernova’ and ‘Live Forever’ named as the rest of the top four respectively.

The former Oasis frontman did not hold back when asked about Adele’s new album.
Noel Gallagher is never one for mincing his words and the outspoken singer’s latest target is Adele and her million selling album 25. The former Oasis frontman has described the album as 'cheesy music for f***ing grannies’, during an interview with Music Feeds.
25 is not on Noel Gallagher’s Christmas wish list.
When asked what he thought of Adele, Gallagher said: "If someone wants to know what I think of Adele, I’ll f***ing tell them… I just don’t see what all the fuss is about. I don’t like her music. I think it’s music for f***ing grannies.”

The John Lewis Christmas advert features Oasis song ‘Half The World Away’.
Liam Gallagher has reportedly hit out at brother Noel after he allowed Oasis hit ‘Half The World Away’ to be used as the soundtrack for the new John Lewis advert. According to The Mirror, Liam has even gone so far as banning him from visiting their family pub over the Christmas holidays.
Liam Gallagher has labelled brother Noel a ‘sell-out’.
A source told the newspaper, “Liam has been making his usual snidey remarks about the song being on the John Lewis advert. When he first heard about it he was ranting in his own local pub in Hampstead, north London, to just about anyone who’d listen.”

Noel scotched widely reported rumours of an Oasis reunion later in the year, and blamed his brother for circulating them in the first place.
Furthermore, the 47 year old claims that he hasn’t at any point considered reuniting the beloved Britpop group, after he himself quit the band at a show in Paris in August 2009. At the time, Liam was reported to have broken one of his favourite guitars minutes before the band was due onstage at a festival.
Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, he said: “There was a rumour last week that we've had a gentleman's agreement [to reform Oasis], but that rumour's come from his people. It's a ‘source close to him’, and I'll tell you how close it is: she probably wakes up with him every morning. It's always left to me in an interview to let the kids down. People say, “You're breaking these kids' hearts”. Well, what the f***, man?”

The former Oasis star gave his typically forthright opinion of Britain's music scene today.
In an interview with NME as part of a round table discussion alongside fellow artists La Roux, Sleaford Mods and Courtney Barnett, the 47 year old guitarist said “Every single song in the Top 10 is the same s**t with a different voice. If you’re number one in the charts now, it automatically means you must be s**t.”

Did Liam Gallagher's tweets hint at an Oasis reunion at Glastonbury?
An Oasis reunion could be on the horizon after frontman Liam Gallagher tweeted the letters of the band's name over the course of a few hours on Thursday evening (April 24, 2014). Bookmakers Paddy Power subsequently suspended betting on the band playing Glastonbury 2014.

An Oasis reunion looks unlikely for 2014, though don't rule it out.
Following Facebook and Instagram posts last night, Oasis fans were dusting off their parka coats and bucket hats, calling their brothers "r kid" and swaggering down to their local clutching a two-pound coin to play Standing on the Shoulders of Giants in its entirety, on the jukebox.

And then came the news that the "cryptic message" that read "February 26 - 9am" was not in fact signalling the announcement of a reunion tour or new album, but instead marking the reissue of the band's 1994 debut Definitely Maybe on its 20th anniversary, on May 19.

Glastonbury Festival 2013 will be remembered for the debut of The Rolling Stones, though plenty of other acts made it one of best festivals in years.
And that's it. Another year passes and Worthy Farm closes its gates on the Glastonbury Festival revellers for another 12 months. Though there's always the distant murmur of someone professing it "the best Glastonbury ever," there was a palpable feeling that this year's festival was among the finest in history. Firstly, there was heightened anticipation given the fallow year in 2012 and secondly, the sun came out. Oh, and The Rolling Stones made their debut, rollicking through a two-and-a-half-hour set on Saturday (June 29, 2013) and scoring five-star reviews across the board.

The surprise return of David Bowie in 2013 had left many commentators speculating on the possibility of the Thin White Duke headlining the legendary festival, though there was no lingering thoughts of "What if?" once Glastonbury got underway on Friday with a snappy set from Sheffield heroes Arctic Monkeys. Bowie became all but a moot point after Saturday, when Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and company played a career spanning set that included 'Jumping Jack Flash,' 'Tumbling Dice,' 'Start Me Up,' 'You Can't Always Get What You Want,' 'Gimmie Shelter,' 'Doom and Gloom' and 'Midnight Rambler.' "The night belongs to the Stones. By turning on the charm as well as the formidable back catalogue, they prove themselves well worth the wait," said the Guardian's Dorian Lynskey.
Oasis man spent more than £300 in pub.
Liam Gallagher’s not one for ageing gracefully, bless him, not that the punters at The Old White Bear in Hampstead, north west London seemed to mind too much as he indulged in a boozy drinking session with his mates at the weekend, which culminated in him trying to ride around on a dog.
That’s right, the inebriated brother of Noel and former Oasis man hopped on board a passing dog and attempted to ride it like a pony. An onlooker commented “He tried to get on the dog’s back and they were just taking little steps — but it just didn’t work. It was really funny.” The group carried on drinking, including ordering £47 bottles of champagne, however after racking up a tab of more than £300 it looked like they might well depart without paying a penny –and not out of the kindness of the owners.
A source told The Sun: “The poor waitress serving them was crying when she thought she’d lost all the money, but the pub manager ran after him.” Thankfully the incident just seemed to be a bit of drunken forgetfulness, with the manager telling the paper “After £300 of drink you forget things. He was happy to pay straight away when I caught up with him.” Liam always was the more rock n’ roll brother of him and Noel, wasn’t he?

With the upcoming Live 8 concert set to kick-off soon, Noel Gallagher has revealed that he doesn't believe that the concert will be successful.
Noel Gallagher has revealed that the Live 8 concert is unlikely to achieve what it set out to do - that being, convince politicians from some of the richest countries in the world to band together and wipe out the debts that poorer nations owe them. The Oasis guitarist has stated his belief that rock stars and musicians alone do not hold that sort of political sway, and they honestly do not have the power to influence the decision-makers within the G8.
Noel Gallagher doubts the success of Live 8
Believing that all the hard work will be in vain, Gallagher explained that: "Correct me if I'm wrong, but are they hoping that one of these guys from the G8 is on a quick 15 minute break at Gleneagles (in Scotland) and sees Annie Lennox singing 'Sweet Dreams' and thinks, 'F**k me, she might have a point there, you know?'
