Noel Gallagher Jokes About Petitioning Foo Fighters to Break Up

The unexpected response to Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins

August 30, 2019

Touché, Noel Gallagher.

During the Foo Fighters’ set at the Reading Festival last weekend, band members Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins earnestly urged the crowd to get a petition together in the slim hopes of reuniting Oasis. Hawkins also had a picture of the Gallagher brothers on his kick drum.

Word of the movement spread to Noel himself, who responded in a way Grohl and Hawkins were probably not expecting. During a show in San Diego, Noel asked the crowd if there were any Oasis fans in the house before joking: "Is anyone gonna sign that petition Dave Grohl wants to get together to get us back together.
I'd like to start a petition to get the Foo Fighters to split up.” See the video on reddit here.

There’s no chance of that happening, of course. Hawkins recently revealed that a new album could be coming as soon as 2020.

It also goes without saying that an Oasis reunion isn’t happening anytime soon, but Noel doesn’t seem to have a problem with efforts to bring their music to Broadway.

Oasis also released a new lyric video this week for “Fade Away” in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Definitely Maybe.
