On This Day In Oasis History...

On August 14th 1995 Oasis released the 'Roll With It' as a single. 

The song was beaten to the number one spot on the Official Singles Chart by Blur's 'Country House' that was also released on the same day.

The single sold 216,000 copies in it's first week on sale.

The best thing to come out of the Oasis v Blur singles battle for me was the bands appearance on 'Top Of The Pops' when Liam and Noel Gallagher switched places.

One of the best mimed performances of all time can be watched below.

On August 14th and 15th 1996 Oasis played the first of two dates at the Pairc Ui Chaoimh in Cork, Ireland. 

Support for the gigs came from The Bootleg Beatles and The Prodigy, highlights and news reports on the gigs can be watched here.

On August 14th 2008 Oasis played at the Black Island Studios in London, England. 

The gig was the first time that fans would hear songs from 'Dig Out Your Soul' live, watch highlights from the set below.
