When probed further on whether the bands would be performing separately, Michael, speaking at a Glastonbury talk at the Victoria & Albert museum, replied: 'No! They will be joining forces - that's not been done really.' 

The exciting revelation came after rumours began swirling about feuding brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher joining forces for the first time since the Britpop band dramatically split in 2009.

A source close to the brothers recently told the Daily Mirror Noel, who left the band claiming he couldn't work with his younger sibling anymore following a series of rows, is back on good terms with Liam.

The insider said: 'It's early days in terms of the details, but Noel and Liam are back on good terms and ready to give things another go.' 

'Nothing is signed but it's what you might call a gentlemen's agreement between them.'

'Ultimately they’re family and whatever has gone on before can be sorted out – they're very close beneath all the bluster.'

Fake? Liam posted a snap of himself backstage at a High Flying Birds gigs in March, which Noel has now slammed as fake, saying Liam was never there and the pass belonged to their brothe

Relationship on the mend? Liam proved tensions had thawed between the two brothers when he posted a snap of himself backstage at one of Noel's High Flying Birds gigs in March

Noel, who is now the frontman of High Flying Birds, appeared to shy away from the idea of a reunion last month, revealing in a radio interview that he 'doesn't want to do it again'.

But the 47-year-old rocker confirmed he was open to the idea of a reunion with his younger brother if the money was right.

'If I was ever going to do it, it would only be for the money,' he said.

Speaking to Q magazine, he added: 'This isn't me putting it out there, by the way. Would I do it for charity? No way. We’re not that kind of people. For Glastonbury? I don’t think Michael Eavis has got enough money. 

'But would we get back together one day? As long as everybody is still alive and still has their hair, it’s always a possibility. But only for the money.' 

Last month Liam, 42, whose band Beady Eye split up last year after five years together, shared a picture of himself holding a backstage pass to one of Noel's gigs, proving their relationship is on the mend.

He captioned it: 'Keeping it in the family...LG x'.

Around the same time, Noel, who's set to tour North America next month with his band, encouraged his younger sibling to make a solo album, saying he should 'put his balls on the line.'

Formed in 1991, Oasis' first LP Definitely Maybe at the time became the fastest selling debut album in the UK and set the wheels in motion for a number of hits including Don't Look Back In Anger.

However as the band grew more popular, tension between the two brother began to mount and the pair often clashed while on the road. 

In 2009 after an altercation with Liam which resulted in one of his guitars being destroyed Noel quit.

In a statement, he wrote in a statement: 'It is with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight.'

He added: 'People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.' 

The final addition to the Sunday line-up of the Pyramid Stage is set to be announced by Michael on June 1. 

Glastonbury festival runs from June 24-28 at Worthy Farm, in Pilton, Somerset. Eavis is believed to be announcing one final addition to the line-up on June 1.
