The 22 victims of the Manchester terror attack have been remembered during an hour-long concert by former Oasis front-man Liam Gallagher.

The sell-out crowd packed into the O2 Ritz on Tuesday night to hear Oasis classics such as Morning Glory and Rock 'N' Roll Star.

Gallagher told the 3,000-strong audience: "We are together."

The final song of the night was an emotional rendition of Live Forever.

One fan told Sky News: "That was the best gig I've been to in a long time, just amazing. It was emotional. When everyone started singing 'respect to the 22' it brought a tear to the eye."

Another said: "It was electric, unbelievable. It just caught a moment and everyone was united. Awesome."

All the profits from the gig will go towards the victims and survivors - millions have already been raised.

This Sunday, Ariana Grande herself will return to Manchester for a special fundraising concert.

Just 13 days after the bombing, the singer will be joined by other a-list artists including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Coldplay at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground.

Tickets are free for those who were there on the night of the attack.

While some survivors have said they would like to attend, others have said it is too soon.

Jodie Stephenson from Fleetwood was at Ariana Grande's concert with her daughter. She said: "I don't think personally I could go.”

"I really don't think I could be stood in that crowd and feel comfortable with my daughter,” she said. “I just wouldn't feel safe; I just think it's far too soon.”

"It's not two weeks after that event, the sheer thought of being in that exact scenario with more people and more stars who are even more high profile, I couldn't do it."

Meanwhile the police investigation continues.

Three men were released without charge late on Tuesday night and police say they are working though hundreds of pieces of evidence and witness accounts.
