Noel Gallagher On Oasis Bandmates’ Lies About Their Final Tour
Oasis’ Noel Gallagher opened up about the split of Oasis. Right after their August 28, 2009 show, Oasis brought an end to their career. Their show at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris became the latest show of the band before their reunion.
Gallagher opened up about the tour during an interview with ABC News, where he revealed the ‘happy’ lies about the band’s final tour. The rocker explained:
“That last tour was not happy. Nobody was happy at the time. The other fellas trying to rewrite history that it was all f*cking great. It wasn’t all great. It was a… Dreadful last year of Oasis. A terrible, terrible time. It had come to an end, you could feel it. It was time to move on.”
He then revealed realizing the band didn’t make him happy anymore while acknowledging that life isn’t worth wasting precious things:
“You get one shot at life. Why be unhappy? You’re just wasting a precious thing. I was like… I don’t need this to make me happy. If I never write another song, I’ve written some of the best songs of our f*cking era, so I was cool with it.”
Despite the bad ending of both the band and the tour, Oasis still managed to get back together for reunion tours. Still, according to Noel, it is better to leave the band as it is since it can still sell as many records as they did when together. He also claimed that it would be a circus and there is no point in returning back as Oasis.
Additionally, a few months ago, Liam Gallagher revealed that he would be touring solo to honor the release of the 30th year of ‘Definitely Maybe’ in 2024. A source confirmed that he can recreate the magic of the album, whether or not Noel is with him on stage. The dates for the tour haven’t been shared yet.
