Could an Oasis reunion really be happening? Surely, after all this time, it wouldn’t be happening, but a new report suggests that brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher have reconciled and could possibly perform at a 125,000-capacity Knebworth again (although, it’s way off from happening).

The potential 2025 gigs would be the brothers’ first live performance together since V Festival in 2009.

The tip about a potential Oasis reunion came from a source close to Liam Gallagher’s live agents, Wasserman. “It’s very early days for the plan, and the proposed dates are a long way off. But if all members agree to do it, history will be made,” the source told The Sun.

Oasis previously performed two record-breaking shows at Knebworth in Hertfordshire in 1996, playing to 250,000 people in total; Robbie Williams broke that record in 2003 when he performed to 375,000 people over three nights at the venue.

The source continued, “Tickets would sell like hot cakes and fans would rejoice in seeing the band together again. It would be the perfect way for Oasis to come back together again and wouldn’t involve a tiresome touring schedule.”

News of a potential Oasis reunion arrives a week after Blur’s Damon Albarnput money” on the band reforming. “I can guarantee they’re going to reform. In fact, I’ve put money on it,” he said.

“They’re brothers and it would be wonderful to see them reconcile.” However, an Oasis reunion also means that Blur’s run at Wembley in July won’t be anywhere near as significant. Albarn admitted, “The only funny thing is that our two nights at Wembley will be dwarfed by their SEVEN!”

Blur recently announced their first album in eight years will be released later this year.

Earlier this year, a fan tweeted at Liam Gallagher and asked, “Liam is there a small percentage that Oasis get back together?”, and the As You Were singer responded, “It’s happening,” lighting a fuse underneath reunion rumours

Noel Gallagher then addressed the tweet in an interview with France Inter and commented, “He should get his people to call my people. He's got my number, he's got my manager's number. Call us. But you know what? He won't call.”

Liam, needing to have the last word, posted on Twitter, “Here's how I see it the little fella aka potato has done a lot of damage to Oasis as a band / brand he's got a lot of making up to do not just to me but to you the fans the people that put us where we are today as you were.”

As Variety notes, Noel has previously stated he would reunite the band for £100 million – in response, Liam said he would do it for free.
