Liam Gallagher Brings House Down With Surprise One Love Manchester Performance


The former Oasis frontman flew in straight from his show at German festival Rock im Park

Liam Gallagher brought the house down with a surprise set at One Love Manchester tonight.

The former Oasis frontman flew in straight from his appearance at German festival Rock im Park to perform at Ariana Grande's huge fundraising show at Emirates Old Trafford.

Liam opened his set with Oasis hit Rock 'n' Roll star before performing new solo single Wall Of Glass.

He was then joined on stage by Coldplay's Chris Martin for a tearjerking duet of Oasis hit Live Forever.

Chris, who is said to have persuaded Liam to come and perform at the show, was earlier accompanied by Ariana as they performed Oasis hit Don't Look Back In Anger.

The song has become an anthem of Mancunian defiance in the wake of the terror attack that killed 22 people after her concert at Manchester Arena on May 22.

The Courteeners led 50,000 fans in a mass singalong at Emirates Old Trafford last weekend - and the scene was repeated at the venue tonight as the crowds chanted along.

There had been frenzied speculation that Oasis might reunite at tonight's show after Black Eyed Peas star Taboo Nawasha tagged the band in a tweet setting out the line-up - before quickly backtracking.

Liam said he would be 'up for it' when asked if he would be performing but said it clashed with a slot at the Rock im Park festival in Germany.

The rumours were reignited earlier tonight by a tweet from The Sun's showbiz writer Dan Wootton, who said he had been told Liam would appear.
