Rumours had been rife that Oasis would reform for the show, which was held to raise money for the victims and families of those killed in the Manchester Arena bombing last month.
However, it was the solo Liam Gallagher that appeared onstage at the Emirates Old Trafford, opening with a version of the first track on the first Oasis album: Rock ’N’ Roll Star.
Liam then performed his debut solo single, Wall Of Glass, before being joined onstage by Coldplay’s Chris Martin, who accompanied the singer on guitar for a stunning version of the Oasis classic Live Forever.
Introducing the track, Gallagher said: “Now i wanna dedicate this next song to the beautiful people who were killed and injured in the Manchester terror attack.”
Speaking to Radio X earlier in the week, Gallagher said: “My heart’s in Manchester – always will be. I will always be a Manc, as they say.
