Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester concert was an emotional and star-studded affair.
The benefit concert aired on Sunday with performances from Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Liam Gallagher and many more.
Unfortunately, Noel Gallagher was scheduled to appear but never made it. With his brother skipping out on the concert, Liam wasn’t too pleased. As a result, Liam made a surprise appearance at the event and performed Oasis hits like “Rock ‘N’ Roll Star” and “Live Forever”.
According to Noel’s reps, he wasn’t able to make the concert as a result of a family trip. Liam spoke on Twitter to his brother’s absence:
He followed this up with another tweet: “Noels out of the f**king country weren’t we all love,” Liam said about his brother not being there. “Get on a f**king plane and play your tunes for the kids you sad f**k.”
Liam also made it clear his feelings are not about their band, Oasis, but solely about him not showing up to the benefit concert.
“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**king colours,” he said in another tweet.
The brothers have had an ongoing turbulent relationship for years now. Fans were hopeful that they would unite at One Love Manchester but unfortunately, that wasn’t the case.
On Wednesday, Noel Gallagher issued a response of sorts, with a One Love spokesperson issuing a statement announcing he’d be donating royalties from the Oasis hit “Don’t Look Back In Anger” to the British Red Cross’ One Love Manchester fund, and had granted his approval for the use of Oasis’ music at the concert.
“Sunday’s concert was a huge success, and we are all dismayed that there is negativity aimed towards Noel Gallagher,” said the statement. “Let’s keep the positivity please.”
