Oasis' New 'Knebworth 1996' Concert Film Arrives This Fall
As Liam Gallagher puts it: "I can't remember much about it, but I'll never forget it"
Published Jul 13, 2021This spring, Oasis announced they would be celebrating their historic 1996 concert at Knebworth House with a new film. But while initial details were slim, the band have now cemented their plans for Oasis Knebworth 1996.
Today Oasis announced the film would be hitting cinemas worldwide on September 23, with a live album to follow.
As previously reported, the film is directed Jake Scott, and it comes in celebration of the two-day event's 25th anniversary.
"Knebworth for me was the Woodstock of the '90s," Liam Gallagher said in a press release. "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."
The famed Knebworth appearance came at the height of Oasis' popularity, following the release of their album (What's the Story) Morning Glory? It saw the band playing to 250,000 fans, though two-and-a-half million people reportedly applied for tickets to see them. Support acts for the concert included the Charlatans, the Prodigy, Manic Street Preachers and the Chemical Brothers.
"It's a story-driven entirely by the music, a rock'n'roll experience, told in the moment, like a visual stream of consciousness that is built around the extensive archive footage from the event," Scott previously said in a statement. "No on-camera interviews or unnecessary celebrity recollections."
