One Love Manchester Organisers Release Statement Defending Noel Gallagher

The team behind One Love Manchester have issued a statement on the "negativity" surrounding Noel Gallagher's absence at the event last weekend.

The benefit concert - which included appearances from Coldplay, Take That and his brother Liam Gallagher - helped raise funds for the victims of the Manchester terror attack, which saw 22 killed and many more injured at an Ariana Grande concert.

Following rumours that Oasis were set to reform at the event, organisers have spoken out to defend the Ballad Of The Mighty I rocker and confirm that royalties from Don't Look Back In Anger were being donated to the fund.

A spokesperson for SB Projects, Live Nation, Festival Republic and SJM Concerts said: “Sunday's concert was a huge success and we are all dismayed that there is negativity aimed towards Noel Gallagher. Neither Noel nor Oasis were ever going to perform. We were extremely pleased when, last week, Noel not only gave his blessing for us to use his songs, but also told us that he was donating his royalties from Don't Look Back In Anger to the fund. Let's keep the positivity please. One Love Manchester.”
