Reading - Leeds Organiser Hopes for Oasis Reunion
Reading/Leeds organiser Melvin Benn has said he wants Oasis to reunite at some point in the future, but hopes the decision isn’t made too soon.
“Hopefully there will come a day when Oasis do reunite but I hope it doesn’t come too soon,” Benn told NME. “Oasis were just one of those bands where you walked away feeling happy. It was very rare you could go and watch Oasis and not have a great time. Whether we wait until 2015, 2020 or 2040 I don’t know, but it’d be nice if it happened at some point.”
However, Benn was less enthusiastic about the prospect of Oasis’ fellow Manchester leading lights The Smiths reforming, stating his belief that it would ‘destroy their legacy’.
“I think if The Smiths reformed it would destroy their legacy personally,” he added. “I’m sure grown men would cry if it happened but I wouldn’t want to see them reforming.”
Benn’s Reading/Leeds twin festivals will this year be headlined by the Foo Fighters, Kasabian and The Cure.
