Oasis defined an era with their two nights at Knebworth in the summer of 1996.
The details of the new Oasis documentary looking at the band’s legendary two-night run at Knebworth Park have been revealed.
On the concerts’ 25th anniversary, Oasis Knebworth 1996 will air at cinemas worldwide on September 23rd, giving those who purchase tickets a first look at the film which has been directed by Grammy Award-winner Jake Scott.
Something of a spiritual successor to the 2016 doc Supersonic, the film is also notable for being the first collaboration of any kind between brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher since the band imploded over a decade ago, the estranged brothers acting here as executive producers.
“Knebworth for me was the Woodstock of the 90s,” Liam says. “It was all about the music and the people. I can’t remember much about it, but I’ll never forget it. It was Biblical.”
“I can’t believe we never played Rock ‘n’ Roll Star!,” Noel adds.
Early descriptions of the documentary have suggested the 250,000 fans who set an attendance record in the UK that August are at the front and centre of the narrative.
