Liam Gallagher has delivered a hour-long blistering set in his first solo concert as the 22 victims of the Manchester Arena atrocity were remembered.
All profits from the gig at the Manchester Ritz are to be donated to the families of those affected.
Gallagher had said he had wanted to "try and help people pick up" and he was true to his word, enthralling the 1,400 capacity crowd.
He showcased new tracks from his forthcoming album As You Were, which were warmly received, but Oasis songs proved a bigger hit with the audience.
Gallagher kept words to a minimum as he announced "we are together" before his band launched into opening song Rock n' Roll Star.
Other Oasis favourites played were Morning Glory, D'You Know What I Mean? and Slide Away.
Gallagher later returned for a powerful acapella encore of Live Forever which was followed by the crowd singing "Stand up for the 22".
Don't Look Back In Anger was not on the set list but the audience delivered its own version.
The crowd was in good voice throughout, chanting "Manchester La La La" and the Manchester City anthem Blue Moon.
Proceeds from the concert will go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, organised by Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross and the Manchester Evening News (MEN).
Gallagher will go on to play concerts in London, Dublin and Glasgow this week.
