Oasis “Wonderwall” Live At Knebworth
Along with the footage, an audio version also featured on streaming services. It will also feature on a live album “Oasis At Knebworth 96”.
This live album is released digitally on CD and triple LP on November 19 via Big Brother Recordings. Pre order it here.
On the concert, Oasis’ Liam Gallagher said this in a statement, “Knebworth for me was the Woodstock of the 90’s”. He also added, “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 weighed in.
Speaking of “Wonderwall”, the famous tambourine that was used by Liam Gallagher to record the iconic tune was sole at an auction. “Wonderwall” featured on the Oasis album “(Whats The Story) Morning Glory?”.
“It was pretty battered by the end of the session and was going to be thrown away. But I claimed it”, said engineer Nick Brine who took the tambourine for himself after the band finished recording the album.
The instruement was sold for £3,600 to an internet bidder who wanted an “opportunity to own a slice of British rock history”.
