OASIS would be welcomed back to Knebworth with open arms if the band was to reform.
Relations between Liam and Noel Gallagher have been frosty since the band’s acrimonious split in 2009 and the brothers have formed separate groups since, with Liam setting up Beady Eye and Noel fronting his High Flying Birds.
But with it approaching 20 years since the pair’s smash hit debut album, Definitely, Maybe, being released ‘Some Might Say’ the pair could rake in huge sums from a reunion.
And Knebworth Park is written into Oasis folklore.
There, in 1996, they sold more than 250,000 tickets in the fastest-selling concert in British rock history.
Suggestions of a reunion were backed by those who ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’.
And, asked about rumours of a reunion between the Gallaghers and a possible return to Knebworth, Martha Lytton Cobbold, the managing director of Knebworth Estates, said: “I am unaware that the band has reformed, and particularly as Liam is promoting his independent band Beady Eye through 2014, find it hard to believe.
“However if they were to reform we would of course be delighted to have them play at Knebworth.”
