The one and only Liam Gallagher is set to release a new live album called ‘Knebworth 22‘. Those of you who remember the legendary Oasis gigs at Knebworth Park in the ’90s, this one’s going to hit right in the nostalgia. It’s dropping on August 11th, and you can already pre-order or pre-save the album here.
To get a feel for what you’re in for, you can check out a live performance of ‘Roll It Over’ below. The song, originally featured on the Oasis album ‘Standing On The Shoulder of Giants’, was never played live by the band but it turned out to be a fan favourite. Now, it’s been given a full live treatment, and the result is nothing short of epic.
This live album has been getting rave reviews. NME describes it as “an epic day in the sun, bringing Oasis’ iconic gigs to the new generation.” The Daily Telegraph and Clash also praise Gallagher’s classic rock star swagger and triumphant return.
The Knebworth Park shows had an amazing turnout, from fans who had been there 26 years ago to teenagers experiencing their first major concert. It’s quite something to see Liam still holding the title of being the voice of two generations.
‘Knebworth 22’ captures the heady atmosphere of the shows beautifully, from the roar of approval that greets Liam as he steps up to open the show with ‘Hello’ right through to the mass singalongs for closing classics ‘Wonderwall’ and ‘Champagne Supernova’ – the latter featuring none other than Stone Roses legend John Squire.
In addition to its digital release, there are several physical formats to choose from including standard and deluxe CDs, black double-vinyl, and sun yellow double-vinyl. For collectors, there’s an exclusive striking olive and black marble double-vinyl edition available only from Liam’s official store.
If you’re looking to catch Liam live, he’s playing a few select international festivals this summer. For a full list of dates, head over to his website.
