The iconic shows saw the Manchester band play to 250,000 fans over two nights: 10 and 11 August 1996.

Speaking of the film, director Jake Scott said: "It’s a story driven entirely by the music, a rock and roll experience, told in the moment, like a visual stream of consciousness that is built around the extensive archive footage from the event. No on-camera interviews or unnecessary celebrity recollections."
