Possible Oasis and Spice Girls Reunion at Olympics
My Nguyen July 23, 2012
When former Oasis member, Liam Gallagher appeared with his new band – mainly comprised of ex-Oasis alumni – Beady Eye as one of the supporting acts for the Stone Roses’ headlining tour in Heaton Park, Manchester, it came as to a surprise for many that the group chose to play Oasis songs written by Noel Gallagher to accompany their set.
Older brother, Noel Gallagher who is credited for penning most of Oasis’ songs, has regularly performed tracks from his old band with his present project, the High Flying Birds, but then this is a given since he did write them.
But with the London Olympics arriving by the close of this month, and with rumors swirling that a performance of Wonderwall by Liam Gallagher and Beady Eye will ensue for the Closing Ceremony, Spin predicts that the Olympics will be a great opportunity for Noel Gallagher and brother, Liam, and their former band-mates to reconcile.
Oasis won’t be the only musical group that might be reforming at the ceremonies. It is also reported that the long-awaited for Spice Girls reunion will take place at the August 12 Closing Ceremony. According to the Telegraph, the ‘90s pop band will be singing a two-song set, one of which is speculated to be 1996’s Wannabe.
But on the more definite side, Blur will be headlining alongside New Order and the Specials. The Who, George Michael, and Take That will allegedly be performing at the ceremony itself, as well as a possible Coldplay appearance.
