Ever since Oasis split up, fans have been waiting for a reunion.
The notoriously volatile relationship between brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher finally boiled over in 2009 when Noel walked away from the band, saying that, “It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight… I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.”
The relationship had already seen plenty of ups and downs, and there didn’t seem to be any reason why this would be any different.
However, 10 years later and there is still no sign of a thawing of relations. If anything, things have got worse.
The pair recently had a spat over Liam’s performance of Oasis songs at this year’s Glastonbury festival, one which turned particularly nasty as Liam had made veiled threats to Noel’s wife Sara Macdonald through Noel’s daughter Anais. Liam quickly apologised to both his mother and Anais for dragging them into things, but apparently Noel is in an unforgiving mood.
My sincere apologies to my beautiful mum Peggy and my lovely niece Anais for getting caught up in all of this childish behaviour I love you both dearly LG x

It seems like the Gallaghers have never been further apart, as evidenced by Betway offering odds of 100/1 on an Oasis reunion happening this year. However, the chances of the brothers burying the hatchet increase with time. Neither has found much success outside of Oasis, and a reunion tour would be an enormous money-spinner, provided they can stay in the same stadium long enough to perform.
The odds of Oasis performing in 2020 are currently at 25/1, in 2021 at 16/1 and in 2022 at 12/1. That the brothers do not play together as Oasis before 2023 remains the most likely, at 1/25.
