A representative for Noel Gallagher has dismissed reports suggesting Oasis have been offered a lucrative deal to reform for a series of big concerts next summer (14). Fans' hopes were raised at the weekend (14-15Sep13) after sources claimed the warring Gallagher brothers were being tempted to put their issues aside and return to the stage at Britain's Knebworth House venue, the site of their huge concerts in the 1990s, to mark 20 years since the release of the band's debut album Definitely Maybe. However, a spokesperson for guitarist Noel insists the claims are completely false, simply telling NME.com, "It's not true." Oasis played two gigs at Knebworth in 1996, selling more than 300,000 tickets. Over 2.6 million people reportedly attempted to land tickets for the gigs, making the shows among Britain's most in-demand concerts of all time. The Wonderwall hitmakers split in 2009 following a major fall-out between singer Liam Gallagher and his brother Noel backstage at a festival in France, and they have not been on speaking terms since.
