WATCH: Oasis release previously unseen live version of 'Live Forever'

Taken from the upcoming Knebworth concert film.

Despite breaking up in 2009, Oasis have never really gone away.


Be it the constant sniping between the Gallagher brothers or their respective post-band projects, Liam and Noel continue to dominate the pop culture conversation.

While a reunion currently seems very unlikely – think of the money, lads! – fans can at least console themselves with a new documentary / concert film set to arrive in Irish cinemas this month.

Oasis Knebworth 1996 tells the fairly self-explanatory story of the band's triumphant two-night stand at Knebworth 25 years ago, in which they played to a combined quarter of a million people.

Grammy Award-winning director Jake Scott is at the helm, presenting fresh reflections of the incredible event as seen through the eyes of fans who were there, archive concert and backstage footage, and interviews with Oasis themselves.


In anticipation of the film's 23 September release date, a new, previously unseen by the general public, performance of 'Live Forever' has been released.

The clip features commentary from Noel Gallagher, who notes:

"I didn't have huge rock star ambitions. That would come after writing 'Live Forever'. Then, a fucking bomb went off and that was it.


"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 going to be the biggest band in the world. I knew it."

You can check out the performance, as seen in the forthcoming documentary, below.
