VIDEO: Liam Gallagher performs Oasis classics at Manchester benefit concert

Liam Gallagher delivered his new single, “Wall Of Glass”, alongside a pair of Oasis classics during the One Love Manchester benefit concert in the UK city on June 4.

Surprise guest Gallagher took the stage at the Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground near the end of the event, opening with the 1994 Oasis classic, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Star”, before performing his newly-released solo tune and being joined by Coldplay for the UK Top 10 hit “Live Forever.”

Earlier in the evening, Coldplay teamed up with host and organizer Ariana Grande for Oasis’ 1996 UK No. 1 smash, “Don’t Look Back In Anger.”

“What an amazing night last night,” posted Liam on social media Monday, “Pure love vibrations. Nobody comes close to Manchester. Love forever LG.”

Grande put together the One Love event following a May 22 terrorist attack outside her Manchester Arena concert that killed 23 and injured more than 100 people.

The concert raised funds for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, set up by Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross, to support grieving families and victims of the May 22 bombing.

Oasis formed in Manchester in 1991 and went on to become one of the UK’s biggest rock acts, led by Liam and brother Noel Gallagher. All seven of the group’s studio albums reached UK No. 1 before they disbanded in 2009 after selling more than 70 million albums worldwide.

Liam formed Beady Eye in 2009, which issued two albums – 2011’s “Different Gear, Still Speeding” and 2013’s “BE”before shutting things down in 2014.
