‘RKID’ reckons older brother Noel will “give his head a good shake”
Liam Gallagher has shared his thoughts on the possibility of Oasis playing Glastonbury Festival in the near future.
Hot off his Why Me? Why Not Australia tour, the former Oasis frontman admitted he plans on reuniting the band for Glastonbury 2021.
Since the band split back in August 2009, fans of the Brit Pop icons have been driving the rumours and hoping that the anthemic band will reform and make their comeback at Glastonbury Festival.
In response to a Tweet sent out by the singer in which he was thanking Australia – an enthusiastic fan asked the 47-year-old RocknRolla about the prospects of an Oasis reunion at next year’s Glastonbury Festival, to which Liam replied: “Too soon the little fella has threatened to take a year off which I highly recommend so I reckon he’ll give his head a good shake and bingo we’ll be on for the following year isn’t it”

Big brother Noel has recently admitted in an interview to Big Issue Magazine that the possibility of Oasis getting back together is not off the cards, saying: “Well it could [happen]. Of course it could,”.
Adding: “But there would have to be an extraordinary set of circumstances… I left the band 10 years ago. I think I’ve seen him twice in 10 years and both times we nearly ended up in a fight for no reason. I can’t envisage the morning I wake up and think I’d like to spend two years on the road, arguing all around the world with Liam.”
Earlier this year, Liam Gallagher confirmed he’s “gonna be” going to Glastonbury in 2020 for its 50th anniversary, even though he has “not been asked” to play, yet – while also admitting he wants “nothing big […] just a cheeky little slot in a tent”.
The singer has played Glastonbury countless times before – three times with Oasis in 2004, once with Beady Eye, and in 2017 and earlier this year as a solo artist.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift was the second headliner to be announced for the 2020 edition of the Festival – after Paul McCartney, and joins Diana Ross who was officially confirmed earlier this year as Glastonbury’s 50-anniversary ‘Legends’ slot performer – while Mike Skinner and Carl Cox are the two latest big-scale artists to self-confirm for the Festival’s 2020 bill thus far.
Despite the fact that the full line-up for Glastonbury 2020 has yet to be released – all tickets for the Festival’s 50th anniversary have now sold out, with General Admission tickets selling out in 33 minutes, following Coach + Ticket Packages which sold out in just 27 minutes.
There are still ways to go to Glastonbury next year, and in addition to being able to volunteer – there will also be a resale of any cancelled tickets in the spring, with coach + ticket packages going up for resale on April 16 – followed by a general admission tickets resale (which don’t include travel) on April 19.
Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
