‘Oasis Knebworth 1996’, comes to cinemas worldwide from September 23rd but Oasis have today revealed unseen footage of their performance of their iconic single ‘Live Forever’ from the record breaking shows.
The footage from the film features commentary from Noel Gallagher who said: “We were a pretty decent band the night before I wrote ‘Live Forever’ but it was indie music. The day after I wrote ’Live Forever’, we were gonna be the biggest band in the world. I knew it.”
Oasis’ two record breaking nights at Knebworth took place on the 10th and 11th August 1996, with over a quarter of a million fans there.
Directed by Grammy Award-winner Jake Scott, ‘Oasis Knebworth 1996’ celebrates the story of the special relationship between Oasis and their fans that made the largest concert of the ‘90’s possible. It is told entirely in the moment through the eyes of the fans who were there, built around extensive and never before seen archive concert and backstage footage from the event, with additional interviews with the band and concert organisers.
