Noel Gallagher donates all proceeds from Don’t Look Back In Anger to charity after Liam’s One Love Manchester digs.

Noel Gallagher’s “no show” at Sunday’s One Love Manchester concert appears to have ignited the ongoing feud between the Gallagher brothers.

Younger sibling Liam hasn’t been able to resist taking some digs at the High Flying Birds frontman, but while the 50-year-old rocker has faced backlash for missing the gig, it looks like he might be redeeming himself.

Noel has reportedly been donating all proceeds from Oasis anthem Don’t Look Back In Anger – which has since become an anthem for Manchester following May’s terror attack at the Arena – to charity.

According to the i contributor Simon Kelner, Noel hasn’t been deaf to the pain and agony of his hometown, with the Manchester-born axe-slinger donating “all profits” he has received from the iconic Brit Pop anthem to a charity dedicated to helping those affected by the suicide bombing in May.

In his latest piece for the paper, the journalist and columnist claims: “I happen to know that Noel has been donating all profits from sales of ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ since the bombing to the We Love Manchester campaign.’

Mirror Online has contacted a representative of Noel for comment on the matter, but it would seem that Noel has acknowledged Simon’s comments are true, as he retweeted a link to the article on his official Twitter account.

The news comes 48-hours after Liam took to the stage Old Trafford cricket ground, hours after performing at a festival in Germany, and sang three songs for the 60,000 strong crowd and audience at home; which included Oasis hits, Rock ‘n’ Roll Star and Live Forever.

Following his emotive and stirring appearance on the stage, he took to Twitter to attack his brother for failing to show up – and reform Oasis for the benefit gig.

Manchester id like to apologise for my brothers absence last night very disappointed stay beautiful stay safe,” he tweeted out to his fans following his three-song solo set.

He added: “Oh and if anybody’s seen rkid tell him he can come out now as you were LG x [sic].”

But in the face of swirling and much-hyped rumours of the pair burying the hatchet – they haven’t played together since an argument errupted abckstage in France in 2009 sparking the demise of Oasis – for the gig, Noel and his camp made it clear he could not attend the One Love gig.

A representative for Noel told Mirror Online that the rocker would be on holiday over the weekend it took place, adding: “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.”
