Noel Gallagher is donating song royalties to Manchester fund

Noel Gallagher is donating song royalties to Manchester fund

During the concert on Sunday, Chris Martin of Coldplay performed the band's hits side-by-side with Liam as Noel spent the weekend out of the country.

"Manchester id (sic) like to apologise for my brothers (sic) absence last night very disappointed stay handsome stay safe", he wrote, before suggesting the singer/songwriter had refused to cut short a family holiday in Italy for the charity gig. Weren't we all love.

"It ain't about Oasis".

And with Liam taking to Twitter to criticize his brother's non-appearance at a gig which will undoubtedly go down in British history, a source close to Noel has felt compelled to speak out in Noel's defense.

Liam Gallagher took a social media swipe at his elder sibling following the show, pointing out Noel's lack of contribution to proceedings.

"The fact he wasn't asked to even perform at any point by any of the organizers makes a mockery of Liam's claims".

Sales and streams of the band's 1996 track have surged in the wake of the attack on Ariana Grande's concert at England's Manchester Arena after it was spontaneously sung by crowds at a memorial held for victims in the city.

He is not the only artist donating song proceeds to the fund.

Oasis' 1995 hit Don't Look Back In Anger, written by Noel, became an unofficial anthem for the victims of the Manchester bombing after people attending a memorial service broke into a spontaneous rendition of the song following a minute's silence for the victims.

Mirror Online has contacted a representative of Noel for comment on the matter, but it would seem that Noel has acknowledged Simon's comments are true, as he retweeted a link to the article on his official Twitter account.

Chris added: "Everyone knew in advance you couldn't be there physically, so thank you for being there in spirit".

As reported by NME, Gordon Smart of Radio X defended the elder Gallagher.
