Oasis Announce Reunion Gig

1031419OASIS have split up, gone to that great reunion-waiting-to-happen in the sky. No, Oasis are not dead. The Gallagher brothers are alive. No Michael Jackson-style presription medication for them – just good old fashioned preservatives and pickling. Says Noel Gallagher:

“It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer. Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan.”

Sounds not a lot unlike a hissy fit. Indeed, given the band’s changing line up over time, we could soon have two Oasis, or Oases.

And what of Noel Gallagher, who is now seen less often as a musician than on an advertorial for Sky TV or popping up on Match of the Day to say how tough Manchester City fans used to be and patting Ricky Hatton on the back

And what’s this about Noel walking about right before an Oasis gig in Paris?

Fans will recall how in May 2000, Noel Gallagher has walked out of the group’s world tour, amid reports of a row with his brother Liam.

The group have cancelled a concert planned for Tuesday night in Paris, but are planning to continue the tour from next week with a replacement guitarist, Matt Deighton.

In 1996, Noel walked out of the band after a row on their US tour after a row, flying back to the UK.

What their breaking up – again – does, of course, is trigger loads words to be written about the band (see here) and radio staion to play their music.
As the managers and agents of a once great band might say: “Kerching!”
