Noel Gallagher Says Glastonbury Doesn’t ‘Pay Enough’ to Prompt Oasis Reunion
Noel Gallagher has consistently rebuffed the Oasis reunion rumors that have cropped up since earlier this year, and, in a conversation with the Daily Star, the High Flying Birds leader has yet again said it’s not likely.
“I don’t know where the rumors keep coming from about Glastonbury,” Gallagher told the U.K. tabloid. “Would we ever do it? They don’t have enough money, I’m afraid. That’s the bottom line, they just don’t pay enough.”
Gallagher eluded the question of what that figure would have to be, but Glasto apparently isn't game for “half a billion,” which is the number the guitarist threw out during an interview with Vulture in February.
Rumors of an Oasis reunion began circulating when Liam showed up backstage at one of his brother’s solo shows this past spring. Then, talks of the brothers’ “gentlemen’s agreement” to reform surfaced, but Noel claimed those were “disingenuous” stories instigated by his brother’s camp. That warranted Liam to call his bro “another prick on the wall,” and then it really began to look like the good-old days again.
