When people began to spontaneously sing "Don't Look Back in Anger" in the wake of the terrorist attack at Manchester Arena, I had an inkling that Noel and Liam would give it a go:

Rumours have spread that iconic Manchester band Oasis will reform for the One Love gig in the city this weekend to benefit the victims of last week's terrorist attacks.

A tweet posted by Taboo, a member of The Black Eyed Peas, listed Oasis as one of the confirmed acts for Sunday's concert, sending fans wild.

If brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher do reform their band, it will mark their first gig together since 2009, and the end of a long running and bitter feud.  

I also had a distinct feeling that Johnny Marr and Morrissey would do something as well, either together or separately but not as The Smiths. I do not believe New Order will ever reconcile with Peter Hook, but who knows?

There are a number of reasons why this matters, but I can't think of them now. There will never be an "original 5" reunion of Oasis; they'd never let Tony McCarroll get behind the kit. I can see Bonehead on guitar, and that's about it. Gem Archer is still fully in the picture, so that complicates things. Really, it's Noel and Liam and that's enough of a reunion if it happens.

UPDATE - No Reunion.
