Noel Gallagher Wants More Money To Reunite Oasis

Noel Gallagher has denied rumors that Oasis will headline Glastonbury as they ‘don’t pay enough.’

The former Oasis guitarist says if the band ever were to reunite, it wouldn’t be on the iconic Pyramid Stage.

Speaking to The Daily Star, he said: “I don’t know where the rumors keep coming from about Glastonbury.

“Would we ever do it? They don’t have enough money I’m afraid. That’s the bottom line, they just don’t pay enough.”

The Daily Star recently reported the latest Oasis reunion rumors, claiming that Noel Gallagher, Liam Gallagher, Andy Bell, and Gem Archer are in ‘serious talks’ to make a boatload of money with a series of UK arena shows in 2016.

The source said, “Other bands have reunited and had a fantastic pay day so it makes sense for everyone involved.”

“It has been discussed seriously – it’s only a matter of time.”

“It is looking so certain it is worth betting on for next year.”

However, approached for comment by NME a spokesperson for Liam Gallagher said that the rumors are “totally unfounded”. A request for comment from Noel’s camp has not received a reply at the time of writing.

When asked during a recent BBC Radio 4 interview if he and Liam were close when growing up in Manchester, Noel said: “When you are 10 and your brother is five it is a lifetime away and so I never hung out with any of his friends, but, yeah, we got on.

“You can gain some strength from being in a band with your brother when everyone else is a stranger, but as time goes on it becomes your Achilles heel because you know how to push each other’s buttons.

“On our day we were great. People are there now at my concerts that weren’t even born then and they are crying at Oasis songs. All all over the world people are still in massively in love with that band – and none more so than me.”
