It could really be happening. Reports are suggesting the Gallagher brothers have put their differences aside and are in the planning stages for an almighty 2017 reunion.

The Australian publication Noise11 has claimed to have inside knowledge regarding what would be the biggest comeback in music - claiming they even have details on the support band for the reunion shows: "one UK rock band from the 90s with a very close connection to Liam Gallagher may have been tapped as the opening act for some of the shows so fans could be in for the ‘ride’ of their life." Bring it on. 

Rumours of a return have been rife ever since the band's split in 2009, with Liam and Noel's sibling rivalry playing out in the public eye - though their bickering could all be a front, with the report going on to state " The Liam and Noel Gallagher rivalry has well and truly been mended, although a public display of antagonism may work in the favour of publicity."

Liam has been pretty vocal on his desire to reunite the iconic Britpop band this year, telling Q Magazine "I believe Oasis will sail again and it'll be glorious. If it's really about the fans, Noel, let's do it - because they want it. One year. Tour for a year. We'd smash it. My bags are still packed from my last tour, so I'm ready.” Though, in his own words, he claims his "massive potato" older brother isn't too keen on the idea, and is too busy "being beige" - classic.

Following the release of their Supersonic documentary, the film director Mat Whitecross also had his say on the potential comeback, stating the band are more likely to get back together when intense speculation and pressure dies down, telling Billboard "The tricky thing is, the more people put pressure on them, the less likely it is to happen."

Bookies recently suspended betting on Oasis' 2017 reunion. So it definitely happening then. Maybe.

Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher is gearing towards a solo album release next year after singing to Warner Bros Records.
