Liam Gallagher has announced that he will return to Knebworth Park for a solo show next summer, marking the 25th (by then 26th) anniversary of Oasis’s record-breaking shows there.

Back in 1996, Oasis played to 250,000 people over two nights at Knebworth, which were then the biggest outdoor concerts in British music history. Both dates sold out in minutes, as 2.5 million people attempted to buy tickets. The shows immediately gained legendary status, and last week a documentary about the performances was released in cinemas.

Anyway, Liam Gallagher is apparently willing to risk putting on a show that will become known as a disappointing version of what he did back in the 1990s. No, I’m sure it will be fine and no one will say that. Gallagher himself insists that “it’s gonna be biblical”.

The show on 4 Jun 2022 will follow the release of Gallagher’s new solo album ‘Cmon You Know’, which is due out on 27 May. He’ll be supported by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. No, not really. There’s a much better line-up than that. Actually supporting will be Kasabian, Michael Kiwanuka, Fat White Family and Goat Girl.

Tickets for the concert will go on sale at 10am on 8 Oct.
