David Beckham praises pal Noel Gallagher for his new Oasis documentary


David Beckham praised pal Noel Gallagher on his new Oasis Documentary called Oasis Knebworth 1996 in an Instagram post on Thursday. 

The 46-year-old footballer posted the image to his grid which shows him and the musician, 54, looking very chummy while the pair pose arm in arm. 

David told his followers that he enjoyed the film and that it reminded him of the 90s, and joked to Manchester City supporter that it reminded him of when his former team Manchester United were ‘winning everything.’

He wrote in the caption: ‘What a great film mate…Oasis at Knebworth 1996…Absolutely loved it…Took me right back to the good old 90’s when United were winning everything.’  

The Mancunian guitarist recently buried his feud with his brother Liam to work on the documentary film about the iconic show which had its world premiere in London last week. 

The documentary reflects a ‘by-gone era’ before the internet when people would not film concerts on their phones, and shows footage of their iconic performance at the stately home.  

Hazy memory: Noel has spoken out about his memory of the performance, saying to The Sun: 'I was so f***ing arrogant at the time that it didn't really register. Genuinely.'

Noel has recently admitted he was too ‘f***ing arrogant’ to enjoy the famous Oasis concert.

He has spoken out about his memory of the performance, saying to The Sun: ‘I was so f***ing arrogant at the time that it didn’t really register. Genuinely. It’s only since Supersonic (Oasis’s 2016 documentary) and this film that you try and put yourself back in there and you get goosebumps.’

The gigs saw Liam and Noel – as well as Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs, Paul ‘Guigsy’ McGuigan and Tony McCarroll – take to the stage in front of the mammoth crowd.

And Noel insists the Knebworth show was performed at a time when the band was most in touch with their audience and when the group was at its best.

He explained: ‘I’m not sure there are any bands who had that lift-off like we did. We were still in the same circumstances as our audience, almost. It is a snapshot of a band, of its zenith. It is a great moment for the band.

‘Morning Glory (Oasis’s second album, in 1995) hadn’t really taken off. We were loaded but we hadn’t really got paid. You know, the f***ing chimps hadn’t turned up and tigers and fur coats.’ 

Oasis had only released their 1994 debut album Definitely Maybe and their smash 1995 follow-up (What’s the Story) Morning Glory at the time of Knebworth.  

They charged £22 per ticket for fans to see them on-stage at the Hertfordshire stately home.

Noel explained he didn’t remember singing too much at the show, and that he probably has a different perception of the gig than his former bandmates.  

Noel was flying solo as he attended the world premiere of the film Oasis Knebworth 1996 at Picturehouse Central in London.  

Despite working with brother Liam Gallagher on the project, Noel avoided a reunion with his sibling as he turned out to celebrate the launch of their latest collaboration. 

Former Oasis star Noel reunited with brother Liam, 48, last month to work on the documentary film, with the pair finally coming together after an ongoing feud since Oasis split up 12 years ago.

The siblings put aside their differences as they both worked on a new documentary film on the band’s iconic Knebworth shows in 1996, although Liam was not at the premiere.

Speaking about the project where both brothers serve as executive producers, Noel previously told The Sun: ‘There’s lots me and Liam will never agree on, and with Oasis we both have the chance to say no to anything, but doing this was a no-brainer.’  

Noel told how 30 cameras captured every moment of the shows but the band ended up forgetting about the footage after their American tour ‘imploded’ because both Liam and Noel missed shows and they later went straight into recording a new album.

He said: ‘We were going to do the film of it then and if you remember the timescale we left Knebworth, went to America and that tour imploded, it all went t**s up and when we came back, like idiots, the first thing we did was go back in the studio and made a new record.’  

Noel previously told how he believes Liam was at his peak with the band during the Knebworth shows.

He told The Sun: ‘I have to say, listening to the audio on that, we were on fire. Liam was at his absolutely f*****g peak and I’ve since realised Oasis was at its best when he was at his best.

‘And when he started to deteriorate, the band started to go downhill. In my own view, the singles were always great.’
