Liam Gallagher has hit out at his brother Noel for appearing to block all his Oasis hits from Liam's upcoming documentary.

This week saw the Manchester rocker announced Knebworth 22, a film which will chart his return to the iconic grounds for two epic solo gigs this year.

However, Liam has since claimed that fans won't be able to see him play his most iconic Oasis hits on the documentary as his estranged brother has denied use of them all.

Liam also claims that Noel has blocked the use of the tracks he performed at the London leg of the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert, which he opened with Rock N'Roll Star and Live Forever.

Taking to Twitter, he wrote: "No oasis songs as the angry squirt has blocked them he also blocked the oasis I sang for Taylor Hawkins tribute he’s a horrible little man".

When a fan highlighted that Noel had actually praised his brother in a recent interview, Liam simply countered: "What he says and does are 2 different things he’s a sad little dwarf".

It's not the first time the Manchester rocker has been denied the use of tracks penned by his older brother.

Back in 2019, Liam's As It Was documentary was released without any Oasis tracks and at the film's premiere Liam said he wanted to "break Noel's jaw" over it.

He told Sky News in an expletive-filled rant: "Him and his little people saw it and took the Oasis music out of it because that's all he's got left, d'ya know what I mean," Liam said. "Let him get on with it."

He added: "It doesn't make me sad, it makes me f****** mad. I'm not a p****, I'm not sad about it, I want to break his f****** jaw and his daft f****** manager, but that's what happens. I'm not sad about it, I didn't go home and cry, I just wanted to go and f****** put their windows through."

Discussing Knebworth 22, 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."

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.
