Liam Gallagher wants Oasis anniversary reunion tour


Liam Gallagher, the former Oasis singer, says he would like the band to reform in 2015.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Profile, the Beady Eye singer says he would like to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of Oasis's second album, (What's The Story) Morning Glory?

Asked if the plans were fixed he said "It's not definite... but I'm up for it".

Oasis disbanded in August 2009 when Noel Gallagher quit the group following a backstage disagreement with his brother just before the band were due to play a festival.

Liam Gallagher was speaking to Profile for a forthcoming programme about Ian Brown, lead singer of The Stone Roses. The influential Manchester group has announced they are reforming after 15 years apart for a series of gigs in 2012.

"I wouldn't have joined a band if I didn't see The Stone Roses… I'd probably just carried on playing football in the park 'til three in the morning with me top off," Liam Gallagher told Profile presenter Linda Pressly.

BBC Radio 4's Profile of Ian Brown will broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday, 22 October at 19:00 BST and on Sunday, 23 October at 17:40 BST. You can listen again via the Radio 4 website or by downloading the Profile podcast.
