Oasis’ two record-breaking nights at Knebworth took place on August 10th and 11th in 1996. And footage from the concert was recently showcased on the silver screen for the documentary, Oasis Knebworth 1996, directed by Grammy Award-nominee Jake Scott.
The documentary, which came out on September 23, quickly became a hit in the U.K., breaking sales records for the year.
Earlier this year, the band shared a previously unreleased live version of their song, “Some Might Say,” which will also appear on the concert discs.
