Noel Gallagher has told LBC’s sister station, Radio X, that he was left “speechless” after hearing about the horrific bombing on the Manchester arena.
Children were among the 22 killed in the brutal attack which followed after a concert by US singer Ariana Grande at the city’s arena.
Born and bred in Manchester, Noel explained how he was hard-hit after discovering what had happened.
He said: “I put on the radio [that morning] and of course you hear what’s happened and you know… it takes a while.
“Having played that arena and all that and stood in that foyer, and being from Manchester… It dawns on you that it’s aimed at young music fans.
“I’m saying that there are no words but there are words. But unfortunately, you can’t broadcast those words.”
