It has been announced that the upcoming documentary about Oasis' iconic 1996 Knebworth concerts will be released in cinemas on Thursday, 23 September.
Oasis Knebworth 1996 is executive produced by Noel and Liam Gallagher and directed by their Morning Glory video director Jake Scott. Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, 10 August - the 25th anniversary of one of the shows.
The concerts at Knebworth House, Hertfordshire on 10 and 11 August 1996 were attended by over 250,000 people.
It is reported that 2.5 million people applied for tickets for the shows, which included The Charlatans, The Prodigy, Manic Street Preachers and The Chemical Brothers on the bill.
Announcing the film's release date, Liam Gallagher said: "Knebworth for me was the Woodstock of the 90s. 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!" said Noel Gallagher.

The film is produced by director Ridley Scott's RSA Films. Ridley Scott is Jake Scott's father, with the two filmmakers working together on numerous projects over the years.
Jake Scott, whose other directing credits include videos for U2, The Rolling Stones, REM and Radiohead, said of the documentary in May: "It's a story driven entirely by the music, a rock and roll experience, told in the moment, like a visual stream of consciousness that is built around the extensive archive footage from the event. No on-camera interviews or unnecessary celebrity recollections."
