Speculation is growing that Ariana Grande ’s benefit concert for Manchester could feature an Oasis reunion.
The band are not listed among the confirmed performers for Sunday’s charity event but a tweet sent by another performer, a member of the Black Eyed Peas, has fuelled rumours that Liam and Noel Gallagher’s iconic band could appear.
It was BEP’s Taboo who kick started the rumor mill when he tagged the official Oasis Twitter account into a tweet about artists taking to the stage this weekend.

Taboo tagged Oasis alongside all the artists already confirmed for the concert , including Justin Bieber and Katy Perry, leading to rumours Oasis could be a late addition to the bill.
People were quick to notice the appearance from the Manchester band, who acrimoniously split in 2009.

In response to the rumours, a source close to the event could not confirm to Manchester Evening News the addition of Oasis to the line-up, but said more artists would be announced the week goes on.
The confirmed lineup so far is Ariana, Justin, Katy, Miley Cyrus, Usher, Coldplay, Niall Horan from One Direction and Pharrell Willliams.
SILENCE AND REFLECTION WAS ROUNDED OFF WITH MASSIVE APPLAUSE
