Fans are in for a treat.
Documenting the musical comeback of the decade, As It Was tells the story of how one of the most iconic rock ‘n’ roll frontmen went from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years in Oasis to finding himself ostracised and on the periphery of the rock ‘n’ roll world.
Directors say As it Was will follow Liam at his lowest point when he had no band, following the split of Oasis and then Beady Eye, to making the decision to come back as a solo artist.
The trailer opens with a recap on his life since Oasis split in 2009, with the frontman saying: “No band, no songs. What am I going to do now, man?”
But he’s soon back on swaggering form and the trailer shows the moment his debut solo album, As You Were hit the number one spot, and he says: “I’ve always thought I was godlike, ever since the day I was born.”
It also features his appearance at the One Love Manchester benefit, where he shouts out to the crowds: “Manchester I love yer.”
And he’s seen revisiting his family home in Burnage and his mum Peggy who says: “I’m proud of him, he’s never changed, he is who he is.”
Directors Charlie Lightening and Gavin Fitzgerald invite us backstage for a no-holds-barred look at the life of one of the most talked-about and charismatic artists of his generation.
The film will get its world premiere on June 6, at London’s Alexandra Palace Theatre which will be followed by an exclusive live performance by Liam.
The premiere will also be beamed via satellite into cinemas across the UK that night, before going on general release from June 7.
