Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Noel Gallagher per­formed 'Don't Look Back In Anger' with U2 on Satur­day at Twick­en­ham Sta­dium in Lon­don. The for­mer Oasis mu­si­cian is sup­port­ing the Ir­ish rock­ers on their 30th an­niver­sary tour of their clas­sic al­bum 'The Joshua Tree' and fol­low­ing an en­core which fea­tured 'Beau­ti­ful Day', 'Ver­tigo' and 'One', Bono in­vited Noel on stage to sing the song, which has be­come an an­them for the peo­ple of his na­tive Manch­ester fol­low­ing the ter­ror at­tack that fol­lowed Ari­ana Grande's con­cert in the city in May. Fol­low­ing the pow­er­ful ren­di­tion of the track, Bono ded­i­cated it to "the peo­ple of Manch­ester, Gren­fell Tower, and Lon­don Bridge", a trio of tragedies that have rocked the UK this sum­mer. Satur­day's en­core per­for­mance was the first time Noel has sung the song in pub­lic, since the Manch­ester at­tack. He was re­cently slammed by his brother Liam for fail­ing to per­form at the One Love Manch­ester ben­e­fit con­cert hosted by Ari­ana at the Emi­rates Old Traf­ford cricket ground to raise money for the vic­tims. But rather than per­form­ing at the event in Manch­ester, Noel in­stead de­cided to do­nate all the prof­its from the hit song to the We Love Manch­ester cam­paign. The row over Noel's ab­sence from the gig was ini­ti­ated by Liam, who took to Twit­ter to apol­o­gize for his brother fail­ing to ap­pear at the event. Liam - who did per­form at the event - tweeted: "What an amaz­ing night last night pure love vi­bra­tions no­body comes close to Manch­ester love for­ever LG x "Oh and if any­body's seen rkid tell him he can come out now as you were LG x "Manch­ester id like to apol­o­gize for my broth­ers ab­sence last night very dis­ap­pointed stay beau­ti­ful stay safe LG x. "Noels out of the coun­try weren't we all love get on a plane and play your tunes for the kids you sad (sic)" How­ever, it was since re­vealed that Noel wasn't ac­tu­ally in­vited to per­form at the show.
