The new documentary Oasis: Knebworth 1996 explores the band's iconic sell out event and gives viewers the chance to see behind the scenes footage that has never been shown before.

Oasis played to 250,000 loyal fans on a single weekend when Liam Gallagher, brother Noel, Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs, Paul 'Guigsy' McGuigan and Alan White were at their best.

Talking about the impactful gig, Noel told The Sun that he didn't understand at the time that it would be so legendary.

The pop star said: "I was so f***ing arrogant at the time that it didn’t really register. Genuinely. It’s only since Supersonic (Oasis’s 2016 documentary) and this film that you try and put yourself back in there and you get goosebumps."

He continued: "I’m not sure there are any bands who had that lift-off like we did. We were still in the same circumstances as our audience, almost. It is a snapshot of a band, of its zenith. It is a great moment for the band.

"Morning Glory (Oasis’s second album, in 1995) hadn’t really taken off. We were loaded but we hadn’t really got paid. You know, the f***ing chimps hadn’t turned up and tigers and fur coats."

Fans throughout the UK flocked to the Hertfordshire stately home for the £22-a-head iconic occasion.

Footage from the event has been remastered by director Jake Scott to recreate the legendary moment.

But although the crowd was raging with excitement at the time, Noel kept his cool and was more concerned about his telly in his dressing room than the prospect of entertaining thousands of adoring fans.

The 52-year-old said that he and his other band members didn't feel that "overwhelmed" at the time.

The rocker then went on to add that he can't speak for his brother Liam but from his own personal experience, he was fixated on the Sky TV not working properly in his dressing room.
