Six years following a break-up that caused untold pain to their fans, Oasis are rumoured to be reuniting for 'comeback tour' in 2016.

The band went their separate ways following a nasty row between brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher.

However sources close to the band say that the siblings have now put their differences behind the and wiped the slate clean.

The Daily Star reports that Liam and Noel are in 'serious talks' with their band mates Andy Bell and Gem Archer.

The Gallaghers have been busy with solo projects since the band separated - Noel with High Flying Birds and Liam with Beady Eye.

It's believed that the brothers made up their differences while attending a family wedding in Ireland in January.

Liam has recently tweeted a photo of himself holding an 'Access All Areas' pass at his brother's gig.

Noel Gallagher was asked about the chances of an Oasis reunion during an interview with the Irish Examiner three months ago.

“On a scale of 1 to 10, what would it be?

"1 being the lowest? I don’t know, that’s it, that’s it.

"I am fully aware that the NME have made a big deal about that, because they have fuck all else to write about. What can I say?”

When asked during a recent BBC Radio 4 interview if he and Liam were close when growing up in Manchester, Noel said: “When you are 10 and your brother is five it is a lifetime away and so I never hung out with any of his friends, but, yeah, we got on.

“You can gain some strength from being in a band with your brother when everyone else is a stranger, but as time goes on it becomes your Achilles heel because you know how to push each other’s buttons.

“On our day we were great. People are there now at my concerts that weren’t even born then and they are crying at Oasis songs. All all over the world people are still in massively in love with that band – and none more so than me," he said.
