Noel Gallagher posts tribute following Manchester terror attack

Over 20 people were killed at an Ariana Grande concert in the city last night

Noel Gallagher has taken to social media to post a tribute following last night’s tragic terror attack in Manchester.

Last night (May 22) saw a terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester leave 22 people dead and 59 wounded following an explosion in the foyer of the Manchester Arena venue. Fans were leaving the show when a bomb was detonated by a suicide bomber. The lone attacker died in the explosion from what is said to be a home-made bomb. The bomber has since been named and ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Ex-Oasis guitarist and Manchester native uploaded a photo of a “I ❤️ Manchester” keyring to Instagram, along with the caption: “NO WORDS.” See that post below.
