“I’d like it to happen, because I miss him and I miss the band and I miss the fans and I miss singing them songs. But it’s in the lap of the gods, not Noel Gallagher, as much as he’d like to think he’s a bit of a god, but he ain’t… Cos I’ve seen him coming for years. He thought that I was going to be down and out, and then he’d turn round and say: “Sorry about this, lads, but I’m going to have to put my wicked solo career on hold because I need to help my brother out.” But I ain’t fucking poor. I’m still standing. No. It ain’t happening, mate. When I think about it, being in a band with him bores the death out of me. He’s changed, as a person. He’s not someone I want to be in a band with. He’s part of the establishment.” - Liam Gallagher about a possible Oasis reunion (x)
Tell you what, I love this man even more! No hate on Noel, but even though I’m biased I can’t disagree with Liam
Noel Gallagher donates all profits from Don't Look Back in Anger to Manchester Relief Fund
Noel Gallagher has donated all the profits from Don’t Look Back In Anger to the Manchester Relief fund amid claims he was never invited to attend the concert.
The former Oasis singer faced a backlash on social media for being a no show at the the One Love benefit concert for Manchester on Sunday in honour of the victims of the terror attack at the Manchester Arena which left 22 people dead.
It was widely speculated that an Oasis reunion might be on the cards as brother Noel and Liam were tipped to perform their track Live Forever. But while Liam Gallagher made a surprise appearance on stage with Chris Martin he later tweeted a vitriolic message slamming his brother for failing to attend the gig.
He tweeted: “Manchester id like to apologise for my brothers absence last night very disappointed stay beautiful stay safe LG x. 'Noels out of the f***ing country weren’t we all love get on a f***ing plane and play your tunes for the kids you sad f***.’ [sic].
However it has since emerged that Noel had not been invited to attend the event by organisers Chris Martin or Scooter Braun.
"Noel has been getting a real bashing for not being at the gig, which is totally out of order,”’ a source told The Sun. “He’s been hugely supportive of the cause but hasn’t gone public as, in his mind, it’s not about him. The fact he wasn’t asked to even perform at any point by any of the organisers makes a mockery of Liam’s claims.”
A series of tweets by Chris Martin appeared to make matters worse as the Coldplay singer thanked Noel for giving him his 'blessing’ to perform Oasis songs at the One Love Manchester benefit concert without explaining why he didn’t attend.
He wrote: “1/ thank you @noelgallagher for giving your blessing and encouragement to play don’t look back in anger and live forever on sunday …
"2/ everyone knew in advance you couldn’t be there physically, so thank you for being there in spirit … 3/ and for lending us those incredible songs. love cm (sic).”
While Noel has kept his silence over the backlash he has decided to donate all proceeds from his hit song Don’t Look Back In Anger to the We Love Manchester campaign.
The song has become poignant for the people of Manchester having been played at the funerals of many of the victims.
A spokesperson for SB Projects, Live Nation, Festival Republic and SJM Concerts told MailOnline: “Sunday’s concert was a huge success and we are all dismayed that there is negativity aimed towards Noel Gallagher.
"Neither Noel nor Oasis were ever going to perform. We were extremely pleased when, last week, Noel not only gave his blessing for us to use his songs, but also told us that he was donating his royalties from Don’t Look Back In Anger to the fund.
"Let’s keep the positivity please. One Love Manchester.”
Ariana Grande returned to Manchester to host the benefit concert to raise money for the victims and the families affected by the attack at Manchester’s MEN arena on 22 May.
“Oasis are done and have been for a long, long time,” he said. “A lot of people think we get on really but we’re not fond of each other. He’s the middle child and I came along and spoiled the party.
"I’m better looking, a better singer and I’m cooler all round.”
Liam Gallagher had previously branded his older brother a “sad f***” after he did not appear at the benefit concert raising money for the Manchester bombing victims, despite the fact that a spokesperson for Noel had confirmed he would be unable to attend.
Following Liam’s comments, a spokesperson for One Love Manchester also defended his brother.
“Sunday’s concert was a huge success and we are all dismayed that there is negativity aimed towards Noel Gallagher. Neither Noel nor Oasis were ever going to perform. We were extremely pleased when, last week, Noel not only gave his blessing for us to use his songs, but also told us that he was donating his royalties from ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ to the fund.”
Continuing to attack him during the Radio 2 interview, Liam said: “He [Noel] wants to surround himself with little yes men that he can hire and fire whenever he wants, but he’s not getting that with me. It doesn’t matter about me digging him out or underlining the lack of empathy and sympathy that he has for people in Manchester. That’s got nothing to do with me. Oasis is done.”
However Liam did not completely rule out a reunion, saying: “Never say never, we’ll see how it goes but now it’s billions of light years away… if we were to do it I’d be there and I’d deliver it.”
So according to the Sun, the divorcing war is over and Liam is now in a friendly relationship with Nicole and of course Patsy. And Nic and Patsy spent their Xmas together while Patsy has been comforting Nic and telling her to be on friendly terms with Liam, which would be very good. Liam took Lennon and Gene out for Boxing Day. Currently he is very very happy together with Debbie.
Oasis reunion might finally be on at Manchester benefit concert
Oasis fans have been hoping for years that the band might get back together for new shows, and you would think if anything could force Liam and Noel Gallagher to let bygones be bygones it would be the love of Manchester.
The band split in 2009 and a reunion is now looking more likely than it ever has, with Sunday’s Manchester benefit concert following last week’s terror attack apparently involving surprise guests.
The band’s involvement in the event was seemingly confirmed today by Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo of all people, who tagged Oasis in a Twitter poster for it.
After the post was picked up by a few news outlet, Taboo swiftly clarified: “Sorry for the confusion folks this the right post”, with fewer acts listed.
It is not clear whether this was a genuine mistake (but how would he accidentally tag Oasis?) or if he was asked to correct the original tweet by organisers hoping to keep the potential surprise guest a secret.
Ariana Grande, who of course was performing when last week’s atrocity happened, Justin Bieber, the Black Eyed Peas, Pharrell Williams and Miley Cyrus are all confirmed to perform at the Old Trafford show, which will have more than double the security of a normal concert.
