The response from fans - who remember the two massive shows Oasis played in Knebworth in August 1996 - was unsurprisingly ecstatic.
“Yeah let’s have it, how many nights?” asked one fan, while another was more direct, tweeting: “YES!!!!”.

Other fans were more cautious and inevitably questioned whether Liam would be reforming Oasis with Noel Gallagher. “Get Noel and maybe,” was one suggestion.

Of course, nothing has been confirmed either way, as Liam has recently announced an extensive UK tour for November - with many shows already sold out.
Oasis famously performed at Knebworth House in Hertfordshire on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 August 1996, with 2.6 million people applying for tickets. Each show saw the Gallaghers performing to 125,000 people, while support came from the likes of The Prodigy, Manic Street Preachers, The Charlatans and The Chemical Brothers.
Liam Gallagher is gearing up to release his second solo album, Why Me? Why Not. on 20 September and has just dropped the lead single, One Of Us, which you can listen to right here.
