Liam Gallagher slams Noel for missing Manchester concert in aid of terror attack victims

Liam Gallagher made a surprise appearance at the One Love Manchester charity concert on Sunday night and has outed his brother Noel for seemingly snubbing the benefit gig.

Liam and Noel Gallagher have been at loggerheads for years.

Liam was shocked that Noel refused to cut his family holiday short and get on a plane to their hometown to help restore youngsters’ faith in music, following the terror attack at Ariana Grande’s concert on May 22 that killed 22 people and injured dozens of others.

Representatives for Noel are yet to respond to a series of explosive tweets posted hours ago by Liam, but referred to his statement last week, which said: “Sadly, Noel will not be at the concert this weekend.

Liam performed at the One Love concert at Old Trafford on Sunday without his brother Noel.

“He’s been out of the country on a longstanding family trip since before the concert was announced and is unable to attend.

“Needless to say he is very supportive of the event and wishes everyone huge success on the day.”

However, Noel’s excuse was far from satisfactory for his little brother.

The pair have barely spoken since Oasis split in 2009 and the ‘Wall of Glass’ hitmaker was “very disappointed” not to have Noel, 50, by his side at the emotional show.

Liam flew back from Germany for the event and put aside his differences with Chris Martin to take to the stage with the Coldplay frontman for a rendition of ‘Live Forever’.

After the show, he took to Twitter and said: ‘What an amazing night last night pure love vibrations nobody comes close to Manchester love forever LG x

‘Noels out of the f***ing country weren’t we all love get on a f***ing plane and play your tunes for the kids you sad f**k (sic)’

‘Oh and if anybody’s seen rkid tell him he can come out now as you were LG x

‘Manchester id like to apologise for my brothers absence last night very disappointed stay beautiful stay safe LG x

And when a fan joked any Oasis reunion was definitely off the cards now, Liam hit out again.

He fumed: ‘F**k the reunion mate it ain’t about oasis it’s about people helping other people and he’s once again shown his true f**ing colours (sic)’

Coldplay’s Chris was instrumental in getting Liam involved with the charity concert after the former Beady Eye frontman’s performance at Rock am Ring festival in Germany was scrapped when the concert site was evacuated.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Chris felt it would really add something special to have Oasis represented at the event and personally called Liam to make it happen.

“Liam was eager to be involved from the start but the clash had kept him from doing it. Things changed over the weekend and Chris gave him a call to see if they could arrange something.

“They came up with the idea of an incredible duet together and ‘Live Forever’ seemed a perfect anthem to sum up the message of the event.”

More than £10 million has been raised for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund so far, with £2 million raised within three hours of the benefit concert.
