Noel Gallagher has revealed he’d be up for reuniting with brother Liam for an Oasis reunion...but on one condition. 

The Britpop icons originally formed in 1993 and went on to have major success with albums such as (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? and Be Here Now.

While both Noel and Liam have openly discussed reuniting (or rather, not reuniting), it seems the siblings are at a stalemate, but now, Noel has admitted he’d go back on stage with his brother, but only if they perform as holograms. 

The High Flying Birds frontman admitted he was blown away by the ABBA Voyage show, in which the legendary band’s major hits are performed by holograms called ABBA-tars. 

Discussing the show and his appreciation for the avatars, Noel said on the latest Matt Morgan podcast (via The Mirror):  "I went to see that Abba show. Have you been? It's f***ing unbelievable.

"It was great - an hour and a half gig. It was very, very impressive. I genuinely thought at one point that the people on the stage, which were holograms, were... they looked that real that I thought they were actors, like playing. The way they walk to the stage is so realistic. If you ever get the chance to go, it's well worth it."

When discussing the potential for a similar Oasis hologram show, Noel seemed more than up for the idea, adding: “I was very impressed by it to be honest but yeah, if anybody wants to do an Oasis one, give us a shout. I would be bang up for it. I'd say 'great', speak to that guy over there and then come up with a figure and then he'll relay it to me and I'll say either yes or no."

When host Matt suggested that Oasis fans might find them doing virtual performances a bit “hollow”, Noel simply replied: “Well y'know, you never get to see the band so how much do you want it?" 

Oasis might not be reuniting in human form any time soon, but brother Liam will be touring their biggest hits as part of his Definitely Maybe 30th anniversary gigs

The tour will be taking place to celebrate 30 years of the band’s debut LP by performing its tracklist in full.

Liam posted in October:“As it’s 30 years since [‘Definitely Maybe’] was released next year I’m gonna be playing the album from start to finish in its original order at a few BIBLICAL venues”
