A trailer for the new Oasis documentary Oasis Knebworth 1996 has been released to mark the anniversary of the event.
August 10th (that’s today, folks) marks 25 years since the Britpop band performed the first of their two legendary outdoor shows at Knebworth Park. In 1996, these shows were watched by a quarter of a million people around the world, capturing Oasis at the very peak of their fame.
The new documentary, directed by Jake Scott, is set to be released worldwide on September 23rd. It tells “the story of that weekend and the special relationship between Oasis and their fans that made it possible. It is told through the eyes of the fans who were there, with additional interviews with the band and concert organisers. Directed by Jake Scott from extensive concert and exclusive never before seen footage, this is a joyful and at times poignant cinematic celebration of one of the most important concert events of the last 25 years.”
The new trailer was released this morning and tickets for cinema screenings are already on sale. In addition, the film will be released alongside the new Oasis Knebworth 1996 live album. The record is set to be released by Big Brother Recordings Ltd on November 19th. Avid Oasis fans will be able to get their hands on a Super Deluxe Box Set, which will include triple LP, 2xCD and triple DVD, as well as replicas of original gig memorabilia.
Publicity is clearly at the forefront of Noel Gallagher’s mind, as last week saw him stirring up the old rivalry between him and his brother. Yet again, Gallagher has attempted to play down his brother’s reputation as one of the world’s wildest frontmen, calling him, “a bit of a charlatan”. At this point, it’s hard to tell if the two brothers truly dislike each other, or if they just recognise that calling one another twats will send Twitter into a frenzy.
