Oasis frontman's dedication to victims

Press Association logoPress Association 5/06/2017

Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher surprised fans when he appeared onstage at the One Love benefit concert dedicating hit song 'Live Forever' to those who died and were injured in the Manchester Arena terrorist attack last month.

The singer, a Manchester native, wore a long, orange parka jacket on stage where he was joined by Coldplay's Chris Martin on guitar for the hit Oasis track on Sunday night, a day after terrorism struck again in London killing seven people and injuring 48.

Gallagher also performed the band's Rock 'n' Roll Star and his own single, Wall Of Glass, before telling the 50,000-strong crowd at the Old Trafford cricket ground that Live Forever was for "the beautiful people killed and injured in the Manchester terror attack".

Earlier this week the former Oasis frontman held a special gig in the city with all proceeds going to the We Love Manchester fund for victims and their families.

Although fans were delighted with the surprise appearance, there was some disappointment Noel Gallagher had not joined his brother for a full Oasis reunion.

Charles G wrote on Twitter: "If only Noel Gallagher could've come back for one song!"

Barry Logan posted: "@NoelGallagher where were you it would have been perfect #OasisReunion."

Regina Felange wrote: "@NoelGallagher - I hope you are squirming in your seat watching r'kid with Chris Martin."

Shelagh added: "Family should united at this time !!! Brothers should have come together," while @Donkiel wrote: "@ArianaGrande what a show, respect young lady! Pity #oasis couldn't put aside their issues for the night it was."

Twenty two people died, many of them young children, in a suicide bomb blast in the foyer of the Manchester Arena as fans were leaving Ariana Grande's show on May 22.
