Liam Gallagher previously announced details of a documentary about his return to Knebworth earlier this year and now he's shared its official trailer.

Liam Gallagher - Knebworth 22 will tell the behind the scenes story of the former Oasis frontman's two sold-out performances at the Hertfordshire venue over the Platinum Jubilee weekend in June.

The huge shows saw Liam perform in front of 170,000 fans, 26 years after Oasis headlined the venue.

The documentary - directed by Toby L - follows Liam as he heads back to the site of the band's landmark performances, and will include brand new interviews, backstage and and concert footage. There will also be contributions from fans and collaborators plus clips from the archive.

Discussing the film, Gallagher said in a statement: "I'm still in shock that I got to play Knebworth two nights, 26 years after I played it with Oasis. I'm still trying to get my head around it.

"To have played to multiple generations at the same venue so many years apart was beyond Biblical. I'm so glad that we documented it. "Knebworth for me was and always will be a celebration of the fans as well as the music. Enjoy the film and let's do it again in another 26 years."

Director Toby L Toby L says the film is a “love letter to live music”, especially with the dates coming in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic which shut down gigs all over the globe.

He said "We wanted to add another layer to Liam Gallagher's life and story by not just commemorating his return to such hallowed grounds as a solo artist, but also sharing the light with those that make Knebworth such a landmark location - the people.

"Few shows will ever hit such scale, and precious few moments such as the one experienced earlier this summer, can mean so much to so many.

"At a time when it's easy to feel powerless to the weight of the world around us, hopefully this film can be a small reminder of what we're capable of overcoming. It's a love letter to live music and being together again."

Liam Gallagher - Knebworth 22 will be in cinemas worldwide from Thursday 17th November for a limited time with tickets going on sale at at 9am BST on Friday 21st October.

The theatrical event screenings will also feature two additional songs from the Knebworth performance to be played after the main feature, which will be exclusive to cinemas and won't appear on any further release of the film.

The documentary will be coming to Paramount+ globally later this year.
