Liam Gallagher's Definitely Maybe Tour: Oasis Odds-On For Reunion

When Liam Gallagher makes announcements, Oasis fans listen eagerly with bated breath. Will this be what they've been waiting all these years for?

In May 2023, Liam delighted Oasis supporters when the defunct group's former frontman revealed he was to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band's debut album Definitely Maybe by playing it in full at a handful of "Biblical venues".

The news had fans salivating in their droves, and while this is quite clearly a Liam Gallagher tour, rather than an Oasis one alongside his estranged brother Noel Gallagher, it sparked further speculation on betting sites that a long-awaited reunion could be on the cards for the Don't Look Back In Anger hitmakers.

Widely regarded as one of indie's greatest debut albums of all time, Definitely Maybe was the fastest selling debut album ever in British history when it was released on August 30, 1994.

The era-defining LP has spent a mammoth 541 weeks on the Official Albums Chart, and Liam himself has admitted he "wouldn't be anywhere" without the record.

Oasis competition

When announcing his 14-date tour, which will see the star play in his home city of Manchester as well as Sheffield, Cardiff, London, Glasgow and Dublin, he said: "I'm bouncing around the house to announce the Definitely Maybe Tour.

"The most important album of the '90s bar none. I wouldn't be anywhere without it."

The tour is a complete sell out and he's clearly taking it seriously ahead of the first gig on Saturday, June 1, at Sheffield's Utilita Arena.

Liam missed this year's FA Cup final - featuring his beloved Manchester City, who lost to fierce rivals Manchester United - at Wembley last weekend, to rehearse for the tour.

When asked recently on social media site X whether he would be attending the match, he replied: "I’m not as I’ll be bang in rehearsals for DM so I’ll be living like a monk and looking like a spunk (sic)"

Liam also told another fan on X that there will be "hundreds" of surprises on the upcoming tour - but could one of these shocks be an Oasis reunion?

Liam And Noel's Comeback

While rumours of an Oasis comeback have been rife for some time, it has been more in hope than expectation.

Liam and his brother Noel - Oasis' guitarist and chief songwriter - have been at loggerheads for years, ever since they had a huge backstage bust-up at the band's final concert, at Paris' Rock en Seine festival, in 2009. From that day, Oasis were no more.

They say it's the hope that kills you, but Oasis super-fans have needed to cling onto something over the years.

Blur frontman Damon Albarn provided just that a week after Liam's Definitely Maybe Tour announcement in May 2023.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, he said: "I can guarantee they’re going to reform. In fact, I’ve put money on it. 

"They’re brothers and it would be wonderful to see them reconcile." Damon could well be onto something. 

It's just 1/3 with Gambling.com's odds experts for Oasis to make a comeback this year, and the band are just 2/5 to do so on Liam's upcoming Definitely Maybe Tour.

It would be an extremely fitting way to complete their comeback, and even former band member Andy Bell has predicted Oasis will "probably" reunite "at some point".

However, while this blazing bonfire of speculation has increased in temperature lately, Liam has poured some cold water on it.

In April, Liam scolded Andy for "getting people's hopes up" about an Oasis comeback. He wrote on X: "Andy bell from ride the shoe gazing phenomenon should really not be getting people’s hopes up it’s not big and and it’s not clever LG x (sic)"

Despite this, Oasis comeback speculation increased again recently when a video of what appeared to be Sawmills Studio in Cornwall, where Oasis recorded Definitely Maybe tracks, appeared on the defunct group's Instagram account.

The cryptic clip fuelled the rumours further, but Oasis appeared to dash hopes of a reunion just days later by announcing the release of a Definitely Maybe 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition.

It will drop on August 30, the same date in 1994 their debut album was released and changed British music forever.

According to bookmakers, the group are 3/1 to reunite next year, but it's 14/1 they don't ever get together again, which would be a crushing blow to Oasis supporters.

However, the band have clearly agreed to the release of this new anniversary edition of Definitely Maybe, which features songs from the original recording session at Monnow Valley Studios, and outtakes recorded at Sawmills Studios. 

So, could this be the first step on the road to a reunion for the Britpop group?

Manchester Reunion

If Noel is to join Liam for a surprise appearance, or appearances, on the upcoming Definitely Maybe Tour, then the pair will surely make their Oasis comeback where it all began - their home city of Manchester, where the Gallagher brothers were born to Irish immigrant parents Peggie and Thomas Gallagher.

While we wait for odds to become availabe on betting apps, our experts make it 4/6 that Oasis reunite in Manchester, while London is 2/1 second favourite.

Liam previously claimed Noel had "been asked and refused" to be a part of the tour, and those punters who aren't anticipating any surprises might prefer the 5/2 on none of the venues housing a much-wanted Oasis reunion.

If Noel does re-team with his brother, he's probably unlikely to do so in Glasgow, which is 12/1 to first feature the Wonderwall hitmakers' comeback on the tour.

Noel clearly isn't a huge fan of Scotland, after he previously described the nation as a "third world country" while blasting Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi.

And should the group re-team, it is unlikely to be just Liam and Noel blaring out some of Definitely Maybe's iconic tunes, which include the likes of indie mega-anthems Rock 'n' Roll Star, Live Forever, Supersonic, Slide Away and Cigarettes and Alcohol.

In April, Liam dropped a huge hint that former Oasis bassist Paul 'Guigsy' McGuigan could appear on the Definitely Maybe Tour.

When asked on X if he will be joining him on stage, Liam replied: "He knows where I am". Guigsy is 11/8 to join Liam, but just 8/11 to give the gigs a miss.

Liam's Son Support

One thing we do know about Liam's Definitely Maybe Tour is there will be two Gallaghers on stage on the opening night in Sheffield - but neither of their first names are Noel.

For all 14 shows, Liam will be supported by Villanelle, his youngest son Gene Gallagher's band, while Cast and The View are also playing selected dates.

There may still be three Gallaghers who take to the stage in Sheffield if Noel appears, but that could've been the case anyway.

Liam has revealed he asked his eldest son Lennon Gallagher if his band wanted to play on the tour, but the offer was politely rejected.

While one Gallagher son is and the other isn't, who else might keep Liam company?

Liam's latest project has seen him collaborate with former The Stone Roses musician John Squire on their aptly-named joint studio album Liam Gallagher & John Squire.

The record was released on March 1, and they have recently been on the road together touring the album.

With the pair no strangers to hitting the stage together, it is just Evens that John pops in to join Liam at one of his Definitely Maybe Tour gigs.

Liam and John have been in good company on their UK and Ireland tour dates, as they were supported by singer-songwriter Jake Bugg.

Jake recently told Radio X's Dan O'Connell he "loved every minute" of supporting the two music legends, and the All I Need hitmaker has previously admitted he wouldn't mind sharing the stage with Liam.

When asked on Radio X four years ago which band he would join given half a chance, he said: "Liam Gallagher has a few guitar players. I could slip in there somewhere if he asked me."

Jake is 3/1 to reunite with Liam on stage, while another star who could be in contention for a Definitely Maybe Tour appearance is Serge Pizzorno.

The Kasabian guitarist - who is 2/1 - has previously hailed the Oasis frontman as one of the "all-time greats", and credited him with saving his life.

Speaking to Q Magazine in 2017, he said: "He saved my life. This path that I’ve walked - if I'd not have seen him get up on stage and do his thing, I wouldn’t have walked it. I’m always going to be fascinated by what he does because he has a place in my heart."

While Liam and Serge have plenty of respect for one another, that wasn't always the case for Liam and Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner.

The pair were previously embroiled in a feud with one another, after Liam poked fun at the Sheffield singer's fake "transatlantic twang" after he moved to America in 2012, but they buried the hatchet in 2018 while out in Budapest together.

Alex is 4/1 for a Definitely Maybe Tour appearance, and The Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft (5/1) is no stranger appearing on the same stage as Liam.

In 2017, Liam told NME Gold: "I loved touring with them [The Verve] with Oasis. Whereas we were a bit more punky, they were out there: more a jam thing. I just remember Ashcroft having his socks and shoes off and all that."

Richard also surprised fans when he appeared on stage at Liam's 2018 Finsbury Park show to play acoustic versions of some of his hits.

Other stars could make a Definitely Maybe Tour appearance include Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who is 7/1, after the former Nirvana stickman drummed on Liam's 2022 track Everything's Electric.

Dave previously told Classic Rock magazine: "I've recorded with a lot of people and I've jammed with a lot of my heroes and now I've got f****** Liam on that list as well and I'm very proud to say that."

Noel's Manchester Return?

Should Dave team up with Liam again then they could reunite in Manchester.

The Foo Fighters just happen to be over in the UK touring in June, and while they, like Liam, play in Manchester on June 15 - at Emirates Old Trafford, compared to Liam's Co-op Live date - they don't have a gig on June 16, when Liam is due to return to the Co-op Live for a second show.

It is 8/1 that Dave appears on stage with his pal, but if fans want to see anyone reunite with Liam in his home city then it is surely his brother.

Noel is 4/6 to rock up on the Co-op Live stage on June 15 or 16, or June 27 and 28, when Liam returns to the city to conclude his Definitely Maybe Tour.

Should John reunite with Liam on the run of gigs, it is most likely he will make a guest appearance in Manchester. He is 11/8 to do so, while Guigsy isn't far behind at 6/4, and Kasabian are 3/1.

It's thought Kasabian's Serge still lives in Leicestershire, so Manchester isn't too far away.

Noel has been residing in London for years, and he is just 3/1 to reunite with Liam there, just behind a possible Definitely Maybe Tour guest appearance from 2/1 London favourites The Rolling Stones.

Coldplay are 4/1 third favourites in the capital city market, while Sir Rod Stewart is just 8/1 to appear alongside Liam in London, and the same price to do so in Glasgow, a city he regularly visits to watch his beloved Glasgow Celtic FC.

Gerry Cinnamon is the 6/4 favourite to team up with Liam, who is known to be a big fan of the singer-songwriter, in the Scottish city.

In 2019, Liam wrote on X about Gerry: "It was great to finally meet the GC not her R Gerry top top man doing supernatural things x (sic)"

Fellow Scottish singer Paolo Nutini, who is 2/1, previously supported Liam at Knebworth and was full of praise for the Oasis frontman.

Speaking in 2022, Paolo said of Liam: "He is one of those people who has that confidence in the way he talks and acts. He’s amazing." 

Or could Liam even invite pop star Lewis onto the stage in his native Scotland to have a pop at Noel?

Someone You Loved singer Lewis is 4/1, while it's a far bigger 12/1 that Liam shows DJ Calvin Harris - who he once described as "the most boring f***** person" - how to have a top time on his tour.

Sir Tom's Definitely Maybe Show?

If Noel does reunite with Liam on the tour then it's doubtful the former would want to share the stage with Lewis in Glasgow, due to their previous feud.

But Noel might not mind appearing alongside his pal Cerys Matthews in her native Cardiff.

Liam heads to Cardiff on Monday for the only Definitely Maybe Tour gig in the Welsh capital, and Catatonia star Cerys is 8/1 to appear on stage.

However, it's far more likely that Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones (5/4) or Welsh music legend Sir Tom Jones (6/4) appear.

Both Liam and Tom appeared at the Isle of Wight Festival back in 2021, and before the spectacle, the Green Green Grass of Home singer spoke of his admiration for Oasis.

He told the Daily Star newspaper at the time: "I admire Liam and Oasis - and if I can make some of his fans into Tom Jones fans too, that's fantastic."

What's more, Liam was previously complimentary about Charlotte Church's lifestyle when the pop star was a teenager, telling NME magazine in 2013 that she could be "the next Liam".

He told the publication: "She's got a great voice and she f****** has it. She knows how to get f****** hammered and she freaks people out."

While Charlotte doesn't appear in the spotlight quite as much as when she first shot to fame, she is 2/1 to roll back the years with Liam in Cardiff.

Before the Wonderwall hitmaker heads to Cardiff on Monday, he will open his Definitely Maybe Tour in Sheffield.

Should odds become widely available on specials betting sites we make it 11/8 that he does so with local legends Arctic Monkeys, or 2/1 shots Pulp.

Liam used to party hard back with Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker back in the day, while it's 7/1 he appears on the South Yorkshire stage alongside Sheffield rockers Def Leppard.

A Rock 'N' Roll Start

Whoever does or doesn't line up alongside Liam on the tour, it looks set to be a momentous occasion, and he sounds delighted with the set.

Earlier this week, he wrote on X: "Absolutely blown away by the set it’s full on Psychedelic it’s like they’ve taken a photo of what’s in my mind LG x (sic)"

While the set is all sorted, supporters have been speculating about the set list, and which song Liam will open with.

He is just 1/4 to start with Rock 'N' Roll Star, after previously admitting he would open with that song if Oasis were ever to reunite. When asked the question by a fan on X in April, he replied: "RNR star".

While that certainly looks to be the worthy favourite, especially considering it is the opening track on Definitely Maybe, it wouldn't be unusual for the star to throw in a curveball.

It's just 3/1 for Liam to begin with Slide Away and iconic tune Live Forever is a 4/1 chance.

As well as planning to play Definitely Maybe in full, Liam has also confirmed he will play some select B-sides from the era.

In April, Liam revealed on X he is most excited to play I Will Believe during the Definitely Maybe Tour.

He is 9/2 to open with the tune, while it's 15/2 he belts out I Am The Walrus first off.

When asked by a fan in October if he will be playing any of his usual finishing songs on the tour, he wrote on X: "No solo stuffs def maybe album b sides I am the walrus that’s well worth 8 grand a ticket (sic)"

In the same month, Liam also confirmed he will be performing Half the World Away - which was written by Noel and usually sung by him - on the tour.

When asked if Take Me Away is on the set list, he tweeted: "No but Half the world away will be I’ve never sung that song before somebody stop me cmon (sic)"

Half The World Away, which is 8/1 to be the opening number, is now best known for being the theme tune to BBC sitcom The Royle Family.

Liam and Noel's warring relationship has felt like a sitcom, as well as a horror show, at times.

Oasis fans have watched on for 15 years as the estranged siblings have publicly exchanged jibes with one another via interviews, stage appearances and social media ever since they went their separate ways in 2009. 

Could this upcoming Definitely Maybe Tour finally be the time they put their ongoing differences to one side and reunite? Definitely? Maybe? We wait with bated breath.

* Reminder: These are hypothetical odds provided by industry experts.
