Noel Gallagher admits he couldn’t shut up on stage during the Knebworth gigs

Noel Gallagher has revealed that the famous Oasis shows at Knebworth in 1996 are probably the chattiest he’s ever been on stage… but there were very pressing reasons for that.

The iconic shows saw the Manchester band play to 250,000 fans over two nights 25 years ago this week.

In the next episode of The Radio x Residency with Noel Gallagherwhich airs at 7pm this Sunday (15 August), co-host Matt Morgan asked the Mancunian legend if he’d ever been put off by anyone in the audience at one of his gigs.

Noel admitted that he wasn’t the most vocal of superstars, adding “I don’t really think I say a lot on stage…”

However, he added: “But wait til you see the Knebworth gig. My God. Shut up! I was like, alright, leave it out.”

“What, you were talking a lot?” asked Matt.

“Yeah! Well, more than I should have been,” revealed the Oasis star. “I was just getting carried away, because it was the biggest thing ever, you know what I mean?

“But we certainly enjoyed ourselves in the run up to that show, and afterwards… As I’m sure you can imagine.”
