The Manchester band will also stage a huge homecoming in the city's Heaton Park, while stadiums in Sunderland, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Dublin are also part of the plans.
The confirmed dates in full are as follows:
Heaton Park (June 6, 7)
Sunderland Stadium Of Light (10)
Cardiff Millennium Stadium (12)
Edinburgh Murrayfield Stadium (17)
Dublin Slane Castle (20)
London Wembley Stadium (July 11, 12)
Support will come from Kasabian and The Enemy with tickets going on sale from 10am on 24 October.
Noel Gallagher said: "Looking at the bill, I think these are going to be the gigs of next year, if not the decade for a certain demographic.
"I'm just glad I can get tickets. These are the gigs that people remember, they meet future wives. I give thanks that we're headlining it and not some heritage act on before a bunch of kids."
The news follows Virtual Festivals' exclusive scoop earlier today suggesting that the Gallagher brothers will play a number of festival dates across Europe, including the Isle Of Wight Festival.
Oasis are also expected to play:
Isle Of Wight Festival, UK (12-14 June)
Roskilde, Danmark (2-5 July)
Rock Werchter, Holland (2-5 July)
Eurockennees De Belfort, France (3-5 July)
Benicassim, Spain (16-19 July)
Nothing has been confirmed as yet but remember where you heard it first.
