Meanwhile, the director of new Oasis film, Oasis Knebworth 1996 has told NME that he thinks the band will get back together one day.

They famously split after a bust up in Paris back in 2009 and Liam and Noel Gallagher have constantly been involved in ongoing spats ever since.

But ahead of the release of the new documentary, which is released in cinemas on September 23, when asked if he ever thought the band would get back together, director Jake Scott said: “Yeah. I’d love to think so. It’d be lovely. Oh God it’d be great wouldn’t it? There’s so much studio manipulation in music now. Just a solid rock n roll band would be an amazing thing to see again.”

Reviewing the film, NME’s Alex Flood concluded: “For those who were there, the film provides a portal back to a golden age. For everyone else, it’s a reminder of those special teen years – when a plastic cup filled with warm lager and a sunny afternoon in a park makes for the biggest adventure of your life.”
