Featuring a number of famous voices, the One Love Manchester concert was an evening of love and hope.

Arguably one of the most heart wrenching performances of the evening was Ariana Grande and Coldplay front man, Chris Martin’s rendition of the Oasis classic, ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’.

Performing the duet with the concert’s headline act, Grande, Martin urged the crowd to sing along to the Oasis lyrics that echo what so many are thinking and feeling two weeks on from the attack which claimed the lives of 22 innocent concert goers.


Speaking of Grande’s resilience in returning to the stage to bring Manchester together, Martin said,  “We all want to say thank you, Ariana, to you for being so strong and wonderful.”

At one point Martin was so taken over with emotion her dropped to his knees are he performed the song.

“You’ve been singing a lot for us so I think we of Britain want to sing for you.”

Martin went on to perform other Coldplay hits such as Viva La Vida, Something Just Like This and Fix You, before being joined on stage by one half of Oasis, Liam Gallagher.
