Noel Gallagher has been criticised by fans online this week after ‘failing to perform’ with brother Liam during Ariana Grande’s emotional One Love tribute concert on Sunday.
However, it’s been revealed that the former Oasis man has been doing his bit and quietly donating to the Manchester attack victims fund for the past few weeks.
It’s come to light that Noel has signed off royalties for the classic Oasis track Don’t Look Back In Anger to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which will go to support the families effected by the attack.
Don’t Look Back In Anger has become something of an unofficial anthem for the mourning people of Manchester, after an impromptu performance of the song was given by members of the crowd at vigils around the city.
Noel reportedly made the gesture before the tribute concert took place, following the attack that killed 22 people and left 119 injured.
50,000 people attended Grande’s tribute show at Manchester’s Old Trafford cricket ground, which featured a surprise performance from Liam Gallagher and raised more than £2 million for the British Red Cross.
Noel was lambasted on social media for ‘failing’ to turn up and perform with Liam. However, reports in The Sun have now emerged that state Noel was never asked to perform by either Chris Martin or event organiser Scooter Braun.
After giving an emotional performance at the concert, Liam previously hit out at Noel on social media, calling him a “sad fuck” for not turning up.
It’s now clear though that Noel has been doing a great deal for the victims Manchester Attack victims this whole time – we never doubted you for a second Noel.
