A whopping £3 million each can’t persuade the warring Gallagher brothers to reform Oasis for a series of gigs this summer, I can reveal.
Instead, fans of the rockers will have to make do with Noel Gallagher remastering the band’s back catalogue.
‘Noel has been planning to do this for a while and he thought it would be perfect to release it this year, as it’s the 20th anniversary of the band’s first single,’ says a friend of the singer-songwriter.
When I caught up with Noel, 46, at a Warner Music party after the Brits, the star admitted: ‘I still love my Oasis music and I still play it.’
However, sources say that Noel has snubbed a huge deal to play three gigs alongside his brother Liam in Finsbury Park, North London, this summer that would have netted them around £3 million each.
The pair reportedly turned down £20 million to do a world tour last year that would have included a return to Knebworth for a repeat of their legendary 1996 shows.
