Oasis is not reuniting in 2014 and going on tour, according to reports. There was a Facebook post that indicated otherwise and went viral.
Oasis posted a cryptic image on Instagram and Facebook this week, which led people to believe the British rock band was getting back together.
The announcement, however, was just to promote the remastered version of “Definitely Maybe,” the band’s best-known album.
A three-disc special edition of the album, which was released in 1994, will come out on May 19. There will be rare recordings and demos as well
The post merely said “26 Feb” and “9am,” with nothing else.
People mistook it as a reunion. “Reunion tour!” one person wrote. Another added, “Come back OASIS !!!”
Some people were not pleased.
“It’s pretty sad when you hear from other sources. The band’s website should be the breaking news source. If you say you’re announcing something at 9am, make sure it is 9am!! Lots of other sites with the news on, yet oasisinet still doesn’t state anything!!” one person later wrote.
Another added: “Why don’t they just get back together and make something new for the fans! how many times they want us to buy the same [expletive] songs/albums?”
One posted: “Everybody already owns Definitely Maybe. This is basically announcing nothing.”
Liam Gallagher, the former lead singer of the band, previously hinted at a reunion when he said that Oasis had “unfinished business,” and added the band could “bury the hatchet for a quick lap of honour.”
