Liam Gallagher has announced his plans to retire as a solo artist as brother Noel has ‘begged him’ to reform Oasis.

Before that he told fans: “I intend to retire as solo artist after album no3 as I have just had a call from my brother begging me to start oasis again in 2022 if you believe in life after love c’mon you know LG x”
Liam has been teasing a possible reunion of the band for years but Noel has always crushed any hope of a comeback.
Fans began to immediately began to question Liam’s tweets – with many asking if by ‘brother’ he meant other Gallagher sibling Paul.
“You’re messing with us now,” said one.
“Don’t mess with my heart Liam !!!!!!” another cried.
47-year-old Liam has enjoyed huge success as a solo star with his latest album Why Me? Why Not LP topping the charts following its release on 20 September last year.
It was declared the biggest selling vinyl of the year, prompting Liam to have another dig at his brother.
Writing to his 3million Twitter followers, Liam announced: “Why me? Why Not biggest selling vinyl album of 2019 thanks to everyone who bought it silky smooth fizzy biblical c’mon you know LG x.”
“What place did Noel come?” one of his followers asked in response.
To which Liam quipped: “Oh he didn’t put an album he puts out eps. What year we in? 1973?”
In December, Noel hinted at a possible reconciliation with estranged brother Liam.
Noel, 52, said the feuding pair could bury the hatchet for the sake of their mother, Peggy Gallagher
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Noel said: “Our family has never been close. I don’t know one person, one single person, in my life who is living in the perfect family. Not one.”
He then added: “Reconciliation is a good thing.”
After years of exchanging digs in the past. many fans of the Mancunian rockers had been hoping they could reform the 50th Glastonbury Festival in 2020.
“Too soon the little fella has threatened to take a year off which I highly recommend so I reckon he’ll give his head a good shake and bingo we’ll be on for the following year isn’t it,” Liam told fans.
The brothers have been locked in a feud since 2009 after an argument broke out before they were to take to the stage at Rock En Seine festival in Paris.
Noel issued a statement: “It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.”
The pair have been bashing each other in the media ever since, with Noel’s wife Sara even making unfavourable comments about her brother-in-law.
