Yesterday’s One Love Manchester benefit concert could not reunite Oasis, but it did provide a special guest in native son and solo artist Liam Gallagher. And shortly after the former Oasis frontman’s three-song performance, inquires on the whereabouts of brother Noel quickly surfaced.

Before the Old Trafford benefit concert, which raised roughly $2.5 million for those affected by the May 22 terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s concert at Manchester Arena, a Noel Gallagher spokesperson told the Independent that the High Flying Birdsman and former Oasis guitarist would not perform or be in attendance: “Sadly, Noel will not be at the concert this weekend. 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.”

As an unannounced guest, Liam performed Oasis classic “Rock And Roll Star” and new single “Wall Of Glass” before Coldplay’s Chris Martin joined him for “Live Forever.” Earlier, Martin and Grande performed Oasis’ “Don’t Look Back In Anger,” a song re-adopted by Mancunians as they heal from the tragedy.

This morning (June 5), Liam called his brother out and slammed his absence, tweeting: “Noels out of the fucking country weren’t we all love get on a fucking plane and play your tunes for the kids you sad fuck”.

Even the Creation Records twitter account got into the action.
