The British band Oasis’reunionproved to be a false alarm. On Feb. 25, 2014, a cryptic post from the band’s official Facebook page simply said “26 Feb -9am.”
Speculations began to spread that the Gallagher brothers, Noel and Liam, have put the past behind them. Some fans perceived that the band will be back on tour, while others think that the post was simply about the release of the remastered version of the band’s album “Definitely Maybe.” Since its release in 1994, the album marks its 20th anniversary in 2014.
In an interview with the London Evening Standard, Noel said that if the Stone Roses can do it, then anyone can do it.
“You can never predict what you’ll be doing in 20 years’ time, but I guess if everyone remains vaguely slim and has not gone bald, then it’s on the cards. Forever,” he added in the London Evening Standard report.
Meanwhile, Liam expressed his sentiments in doing a reunion with his brother to NME.com.
“People ask would I get Oasis back together. I’d do it for nowt, but if someone’s going to drop a load of fucking money, I’d do it for that too,” said Liam in the NME report.
While promoting the second album of his new band Beady Eye, Liam mentioned that he was up for the idea of Oasis playing again for the 20th anniversary of “Definitely Maybe.”
However, he emphasized that he would still go back with Beady Eye and his brother can do his own thing.
“We could bury the hatchet for a quick lap of honour,” added Liam.
Oasis has been known for its chart-topping hits during the 90s, such as “Don’t Look Back In Anger,” Out” and “Supersonic.” Through the years, the band has been recognized by award-giving bodies like Brit Awards (BRITS Album of 30 Years in 2010 and Outstanding Contribution to Music in 2007), Q Awards (People’s Choice and Best Album for “Don’t Believe the Truth” in 2005) and ShockWaves NME Awards (Best British Band 2009, Best Video for “The Importance of Being Idle” 2006, and Best Music DVD for “Definitely Maybe” 2005 ).
Since Oasis has disbanded, the Gallagher brothers have embarked on different bands, making a name on their own.
Even if the Oasis reunion proved to be a false alarm, fans of the British band are still hoping against hope that there will be one in the future. In the meantime, they should just be happy that the first three studio albums will be re-released in 2014, including “Definitely Maybe” on May 19, 2014. These will reportedly be fully remastered and will include a collection of previously unheard tracks and rare recordings
