A new documentary chronicling the larger-than-life performances from Britpop kings Oasis at Knebworth in 1996 will premiere in theaters coming up on Sept. 23. A momentous live experience from Noel Gallagher, Liam Gallagher and their band mates, it’s the quintessential live performance from the band during its heyday.

To preview the documentary — and corresponding live album/Blu-ray, which is due for a Nov. 19 release — Oasis shared previously unseen performance footage of “Live Forever” on Thursday.

Part of the footage includes Noel discussing how that track, in particular, helped the band’s growth exponentially:

“We were a pretty decent band the night before I wrote ‘Live Forever’ but it was indie music. The day after I wrote ’Live Forever,’ we were gonna be the biggest band in the world. I knew it.”

Per a news release:

Oasis Knebworth 1996 is the story of the special relationship between Oasis and their fans that made the largest concert of the ‘90’s possible. It is told entirely in the moment through the eyes of the fans who were there, built around extensive, and never before seen archive concert and backstage footage from the event, with additional interviews with the band and concert organisers.

Directed by Grammy Award-winner Jake Scott, this is a joyful and at times poignant cinematic celebration of one of the most iconic live concert events of the last 25 years, driven entirely by the music, and the fans’ own experiences of that monumental weekend.

The live album will be made available in a variety of formats.
