The internet has become a vacuum of free content. So much for privacy watchdogs and copyright. Remember the days of pirate videos and DVD’S? These days criminals hide in plain site – YouTube and other platforms where they upload content for free, which is not good for musicians and other entertainment groups looking to make an honest buck or two (take that with a large pinch of salt) Now it appears that Liam Gallagher of Oasis is jumping on the pirating bandwagon and offering free concerts in his latest documentary.

Liam Gallagher’s Knebworth 22 documentary will premiere on Paramount+ on Tuesday (Dec. 6). The film chronicles Gallagher’s return to England’s Knebworth Park more than two decades after Oasis played the venue in 1996.
In June, the former Oasis frontman performed back-to-back, sold-out shows in front of 170,000 fans at Knebworth Park. The concert film was initially released in theaters on Nov. 17 before making its way to Paramount+.
“I’m still in shock that I got to play Knebworth two nights, 26 years after I played it with Oasis,” Gallagher said. “I’m still trying to get my head around it. To have played to multiple generations at the same venues many years apart was beyond biblical. I’m so glad that we documented it. Knebworth for me was, and always will be, a celebration of the fans as well as the music. Enjoy the film and let’s do it again in another 26 years.”
