Oasis Reunion Rumored For Manchester Benefit Concert

(Radio.com) Rumors are circulating that Oasis' Liam and Noel Gallagher will reunite to perform at the Ariana Grande Manchester benefit concert, One Love Manchester, this weekend (June 4).

Proceeds go to benefit the victims of the terror attack, where 22 people died at a Grande concert last week. The rumors began when Black Eyed Peas' Taboo listed Oasis among other bands as part of the lineup in a now-deleted tweet for the upcoming show.

Taboo has since claimed the tweet was a mistake, but this hasn't stopped fans from hoping. Fans are also speculating about an impending reunion after Liam wished his brother a happy 50th birthday this year and remarked that he would prefer to be in Oasis than perform as a solo musician, according to NME.

"Yeah I prefer that. I mean, listen, I mean I prefer to be in Oasis. Let's get that ' We know that. I prefer to be in a band," he said. "But that's not happening, so you can't sit at home twiddling your thumbs, do you know what I mean?" Read more here.
