Oasis score UK Top 5 debut with Knebworth 1996 live package

Oasis have scored a UK Top 5 debut with their newly-released “Knebworth 1996” live package.

The Official Charts Company reports the project enters the UK Top 100 at No. 4, marking the band’s first Top 10 album in 11 years; led by brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher, the group famously disbanded in 2009.

The concert film and live album “Knebworth 1996” captures Oasis in performance over a pair of summertime shows at the UK venue before 125,000 fans each night; the events saw more than 2.5 million fans apply for access, setting a record for the largest-ever demand for concert tickets in British history.

“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,” says director Jake Scott. “No on-camera interviews or unnecessary celebrity recollections.”
