Noel and Liam headline Radio 2 gig


Nine years after the Oasis split, Noel and Liam Gallagher to headline the Radio 2 stage at the BBC is the Largest weekend Festival in may.

But, perhaps wisely, have booked the organizers, to play the brothers, on different days… at different ends of the UK.

Noel plays the Scottish leg of the festival in Perth on Saturday, 26.May.

A day later, Liam appears in the Coventry in the war Memorial Park next to Paloma Faith, UB40 and Billy Ocean.

Speaking of Chris Evans Radio 2 Breakfast Show, Liam curiosity are recognized by them as a Headliner at the same event.

Chris Evans: So, have you ever played a concert in a place, while her brother plays for the same cause, on a stage in the nation next door?

Liam Gallagher: no, no, no, but we are getting closer and closer to each other, are we not?

Chris Evans: that is what is so fascinating about this, you see. They are like two sperm whales apart and stared at each other from miles.

Liam Gallagher: Yeah, that’s it, buddy. We are getting closer and closer, we will collide, my friend, one day, and who knows what will happen?

The concerts are part of the Biggest weekend – the biggest music event ever undertaken by the BBC.

The locations in Scotland and England is the music from the Radios 2 and 3, while in the Radio 1 Swansea Singleton Park take over with a bill, including Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Craig David and Wolf Alice.

The Gallagher brothers’ headline slots come after nearly nine years of bitterness. Oasis broke at a gig in Paris in 2009, after a dispute began with Liam threw a plum at his older brother on the head.

You have hardly spoken, but in a long war of words in the press, on stage and social media.

Liam repeated Noel “massive potato called” on Twitter, and more seriously, accused him of deliberately avoiding the last year’s One Love concert in Manchester.

Noel Liam a “village idiot was answered”, and “needs a psychiatrist”.


Liam stepped on the One Love event, held two weeks after the Manchester Arena the terror attack in may, while Noel, the location was the headline the re-opening concert in September.

Of Christmas, which seemed to have brothers, bury the hatchet. Liam tweeted that Noel had “grip”, and that “everything is fine”.

You are clearly not at the point where they appear together on the stage, but… but the Biggest weekend gig, such a settlement at a festival would be the first time, shared by two brothers.

For an Oasis reunion? Even if Liam is sharp, do not hold your breath.

“I have to be very constant”, Noel told Q Magazine in the year 2017. “I don’t need no money, I need the fame, I don’t need to experience the memories.

“If I Oasis back together, and tomorrow, then the tour, I would have learned to over $100m in the bank, but I would [expletive].”

“It would be the death of me as a person.”
