It’s been over a decade since Oasis broke up, but could the Gallagher brothers finally bury the hatchet and plot a reunion?

Liam Gallagher, 48, first teased the potential reunion on Twitter after penning a tongue-in-cheek Valentine’s Day poem that poked fun at the city of Liverpool.  When a teenage fan begged for an Oasis reunion and lamented “not being born earlier,” the two-time Grammy nominee hinted that the wait is almost over.

“It’s gonna happen,” said Liam — immediately sending fans into a complete frenzy.

The cryptic response comes a month after the rocker insisted that Oasis will return in 2021 and directly tweeted out to his brother Noel Gallagher.

“HNY Noel love you long time 2021 is our year c’mon you know LG x,” Liam tweeted on December 31.

Noel has yet to respond, but fans remain hopeful that the brothers have put their differences aside.

Oasis burst onto the music scene with their 1994 debut album Definitely Maybe that featured the track “Supersonic.”

The band became a worldwide hit with their sophomore album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? — which came out in 1995– featuring hits “Wondewall” and “Champagne Supernova.”  The album was sold over 22 million times and, at the time, became one of the best-selling albums in history.

Throughout Oasis’ career, the group sold 75 million records worldwide.

Noel announced in 2009 that he quit the band, famously saying at the time, “I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.”  The remark went onto spark a decade-long war between the two brothers.

British publication Daily Mail reported in February 2020 that the two were finally back “on speaking terms.”

It is currently unknown if the Oasis reunion will actually take place. After all, Liam’s made similar declarations before.
