As each day passes the future prospect of an Oasis reunion becomes grimmer. It’s been ten years since the band called it quits, after tensions between brothers Noel and Liam hit their boiling point. Whilst we may never get to witness the Gallagher brothers biff it out on a concert stage anytime soon, the same can’t be said about the West End.
In a new interview with The Sun, Noel Gallagher has revealed that he reckons the Oasis story transcending to the theatre stage is “inevitable.”
“The musical! People have been on to me about that for the last ten years. And funnily enough, Live Forever is always the title,” Noel shared.
Gallagher has revealed that there has been some behind-the-scenes dialogue regarding the potential musical; and that he is in talks with an ‘English guy who works on Broadway who knows about these things’.
Noel continued: “And he was like saying, ‘Your journey from rags to riches’. ‘And I was like, “Do you have to make it so Dickensian? I never wore any rags”. People do love that shit, I know. It’s inevitable it will happen one day. I will go and see it once.”
Personally, I would love to see Sunshine on Leith and Rocketman director Dextor Fletcher incorporate the music of Oasis into a musical film.
Watch: Oasis – ‘Supersonic’
Earlier this month, Foo Fighters performed their seventh headlining set at Reading Festival. During their set, the band took a moment to beckon their audience to start a petition to reunite Oasis.
“One of these days we’ll get Oasis back. One of these days,” Hawkins told the crowd, before launching into a cover of Queen and David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’.
“We’re trying,” Grohl responded.
Hawkins added, “We’re trying. Let’s sign a petition. Everyone here, okay?”
“How many people wanna see Oasis fucking play a show?” Grohl asked the crowd.
Fooeys weren’t the only act to reference the iconic Manchester act during their Reading and Leeds set. Twenty One Pilots performed a cover of (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? classic ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger.’ During the Leeds leg of the festival, the band went the extra mile and invited Post Malone on stage to hold down the guitar duties.
