Oasis have today unveiled a live version of ‘Some Might Say’, recorded on the second night of their two legendary 1996 Knebworth performances. The track is from the forthcoming live album ‘Oasis Knebworth 1996’ presented for the first time in HD audio, with the performance taken from the full length Sunday concert directed by Dick Carruthers featured on the triple DVD and Blu-ray, released on November 19th on Big Brother Recordings Ltd.

The original version of ‘Some Might Say’, released in April 1995, appeared on Oasis’ multi million selling second album ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’, and was the band’s first UK Official Number 1 Single.
The special live album ‘Oasis Knebworth 1996’, will be released on formats including 2CD and triple LP on heavyweight vinyl with the digital version of the album featuring HD audio. The DVD will be available as a triple disc set including the cinematic documentary plus both nights of the live concert in full, edited by Dick Carruthers with audio mixed by Will Shapland in Dolby 5.1 surround sound, with the Blu-ray in single disc format. Limited edition formats include the 2CD with DVD of the cinematic documentary, plus a Super Deluxe Box Set including the triple LP, 2CD and triple DVD plus replicas of the original gig memorabilia, available exclusively from the band’s online store. All formats are available for pre-order here.
The shows were recently immortalised on the big screen in critically acclaimed documentary ‘Oasis Knebworth 1996’. Directed by Grammy Award-nominee Jake Scott, the cinematic documentary celebrates the story of the special relationship between Oasis and their fans that made the largest concert of the ’90’s possible. Driven by huge excitement and anticipation from fans who were at the era-defining 1996 shows – and a new generation who wish they had been – the cinematic documentary opened at Number 1 on its first night of release, also becoming the UK’s highest-grossing event cinema release of 2021.
Oasis’ two record breaking nights at Knebworth took place on the 10th and 11th August 1996, with over a quarter of a million young music fans from all over the world converging on Knebworth Park, Hertfordshire. Featuring a setlist packed with stone cold classics, these concerts were both the pinnacle of the band’s success and the landmark gathering for a generation.
