Coldplay performed at the special fundraiser and tribute gig at Manchester’s Emirates Old Trafford Lancashire County Cricket Ground alongside the likes of Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Usher, and many more – to honour and raise money in the wake of the terror attack in which 22 people were killed and 59 injured when a lone bomber attacked the foyer of Manchester Arena after an Ariana Grande gig.
Despite Gallagher having frequently slammed the band, just last year comparing Chris Martin to a vicar and saying that Coldplay were ‘beyond shit‘, the former Oasis frontman put past differences aside to deliver an emotional acoustic rendition of ‘Live Forever’ backed by Martin on guitar.
It's for a good cause. I'm sure that went through everyone's head more than once. The heart of music's Manchester royalty did not show up, but this was for the pop fans so it's all good.
