On May 11th, 1996 Oasis became the fastest selling group in UK history.
Arguably the biggest band in the UK at the time, all 330,000 tickets for their summer shows at Knebworth and Loch Lomond sold out in just nine hours. The tickets for the shows were priced at £22.50 and over 2% of the country’s population attempted to buy them.
This was a time when the UK was slowly recovering from a decade of recession. A surging confidence in arts and culture ushered in Cool Britannia and Oasis’ meteoric rise reflected the country’s new-found conviction and swagger.
