The Gallaghers could be getting the band back together – if Liam Gallagher’s Twitter pleas were anything to go by yesterday.
He urged brother Noel to put aside their differences – and his no alcohol ban at forthcoming gigs – to reunite the biggest British band of the past two decades.
That prompted a social media meltdown from eager fans, slashing the odds on Oasis returning this year.
Earth to noel listen up rkid I hear your doing gigs where people can't drink alcohol now that's the BeZarist thing you've done yet I forgive you now let's get the BIG O back together and stop fucking about the drinks are on me LG x

We make it 3/1 that the band releases a single in 2018, and 12/1 that they land the Christmas number one – cutting the odds from 20/1 and 33/1 respectively.
They’re 16/1 to headline the next Glastonbury festival and 8/1 to announce a 2019 tour – while the odds on the brothers never putting aside their differences and re-forming have drifted from 25/1 to 50/1.
Asked about a comeback spokesman Paddy Power said: “Oasis were the greatest band on earth during the 90s. If you consider the number of naff groups from that era which have reformed – I’m looking at you, Vengaboys – we’re surely due a Gallagher reunion.
“Whether they re-form or not, Oasis’s legacy will Live Forever, if only the brothers could stop looking back with anger.”OASIS SPECIALS
