THERE looks like there’s going to be an invasion of lads in bucket hats with cans of Stella at Glastonbury as the bookies have suspended betting on Oasis headlining Glastonbury after Liam Gallagher tweeted something that appears to suggest a reunion of Oasis.

Gallagher dusted off his favourite typing finger and went on Twitter to individually tweet the letters O-A-S-I-S over the course of a few hours.

This, of course, means that they’ll be headlining Glastonbury next June. Of course, if Oasis are getting back together, they’d be wise to avoid Glastonbury and just do a massive outdoor gig of their own, where they can keep all the money for themselves. They might look stupid, but they know where the pennies lie.

There’s a headline slot available at Pilton, alongside previously confirmed acts Kasabian and Arcade Fire. If Oasis get booked, it could be the blokiest Glastonbury ever! And that’s saying something for a festival that is most certainly catholic with a small ‘c’.

However, the bookies also like the look of Metallica, Kate Bush and Prince taking a headlining slot.

A while ago, Bonehead from Oasis said that he suspects Liam Gallagher would be up for reforming the band.

“If someone said, ‘Here’s a field, here’s a stage and here’s 200,000 people,’ I’m sure Liam would jump up and do it, and I don’t think it would even take anyone offering him a massive bankroll of money,” he said. “He’d do it because that’s what he loves, that’s his passion.”

How sweet.
