"Everyone was loving it"
Michael Reynolds, who has been constricted to a wheelchair for five years, was lifted into the air as Liam played a sold out show at Manchester’s Old Trafford Cricket Ground on Saturday.
Videos posted on Twitter show Michael’s wheelchair being supported by several men, while he watches Liam perform the seminal hit.
The idea was first suggested after Michael decided to leave the designated disabled area in order to witness the atmosphere of the standing section with his friends.
“But I couldn’t see, I ended up just listening to it. My mates had the idea of lifting me up. Suddenly, there were 20 lads all helping. Everyone was loving it.”
Earlier today, Liam described the act as “biblical”.
“Respect to the lads at my concert for giving Michael Reynolds the best view in the house. Biblical behaviour”, he wrote on Twitter.
Liam headed back to London the day after the concert – but not before stunning locals at a Staffordshire pub by stopping off for a roast dinner.
The former Oasis singer visited the Crown Inn – after the watering hole was recommended to Liam by a member of his security team who regularly drinks there.
