The Courteeners Play Oasis' 'Don't Look Back In Anger' Last Night In Manchester

Five days after the Manchester attack, 50,000 people turned out for one of the city's biggest concerts of the year. It was a chance for music fans to unite and remember the victims - but also to get lost in music for a while.

As the gig went on, Fray referred to the week's events again. "Never stop doing what you enjoy," he told the crowd between songs.

Later, he said to them: "I just want to say how incredibly proud I was to be Mancunian this week.

"Hearts were broken on Monday. And what I've seen of this city and you lot will stay with me for the rest of my life."

He recalled a woman who sang Oasis's Don't Look Back In Anger after the one-minute's silence in St Ann's Square on Thursday, with the rest of those present gradually joining in.

Inspired by that woman, Fray played the song that has now become an anthem of the city's resilience. Fifty-thousand voices joined him and echoed around the ground.
