Liam Gallagher has confirmed that the new documentary As It Was has been completed ahead of its release later this year.
Announced last year, the new film promises to follow the “emotional story of how one of the greatest rock frontmen went from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years in Oasis to living on the edge ostracised lost in the musical wilderness of boredom, booze and bitter legal battles”.
The film, directed by frequent collaborator Charlie Lightening, will also “see Liam emerging from Noel’s shadow, managing the expectation going from being in the biggest band in the world to starting again alone, stripped bare, with no-where to hide”.

Now, Gallagher has confirmed that the project has wrapped – and he’s more than pleased with the final result.
“Just seen the film As It Was and it’s mega,” wrote Liam on Twitter.
“Well done to all involved. As you were, as it was who are ya want some dickhead LG?”
Describing the project in 2018, Lightening said the film would document “one of the greatest rock’n’roll comebacks of all times and you are there with him each step of the way.”
Although the release date for the film has yet to be revealed, Liam’s fans can see him back on the stage this summer for a string of shows across Europe.
After releasing his solo debut ‘As You Were‘ in 2017, Gallagher has been in the studio working on the follow-up which is due to arrive later in 2019.
Last year, the singer revealed that he’s collaborated with an “an army of songwriters” in LA – later adding that he has written 20 new songs “that will change your lives”.
