Which Bands Are More Likely To Reform Than The Jam?

With Paul Weller categorically denying that The Jam will get back together, William Hill offer 50/1 that he goes back on his word and performs in the band before the end of 2016. The bookies have looked into their crystal ball to see which bands are more likely to reform than others before the end of next year.

The Spice Girls are Even money with four of the five already announcing that they would like to do a reunion tour. Other reunions on the cards are Westlife at 4/1, Oasis at 4/1, ABBA at 6/1 and Guns N Roses to perform with Slash is also 6/1.

“Paul Weller has no reason to get the Jam back together however there are more than a few former band members who will be desperate for a quick payday,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Less likely reunions include Led Zeppelin at 50/1, REM and Dire Straits at 25/1 and Clapton & Baker to reform as Cream at 20/1.
