He also played his new solo single Wall Of Glass before he was joined on stage by Coldplay’s Chris Martin to play Oasis hit Live Forever, saying: “I want to dedicate this next song to the beautiful people who were killed and injured in the Manchester terror attack.”

The concert was held in aid of those affected by the terror attack at US singer Ariana Grande’s show in Manchester less than two weeks ago.

Earlier, stars including Take That, Robbie Williams, Justin Bieber, Pharrell and Miley Cyrus had performed.

Coldplay joined Ariana on stage to sing Oasis’s hit Don’t Look Back In Anger, which has been an anthem for Manchester since the tragedy.

Lead singer Chris then sang a version of James’ Sit Down before moving on to Coldplay hit Fix You as the sun set over the cricket ground.

Ariana returned to the stage at the end of the show where she was joined by all of the musicians on the bill as she sang her song One Last Time saying: “Manchester, I love you with all my heart.”

She then stood alone on stage to sing Over The Rainbow, before breaking down in tears.
