The Manchester Tribute took place to remember the victims of the horrific bomb that took so many lives, a woman lead the crowd in song by singing Oasis “Don’t look back in anger”!


A woman named Lydia Bernsmeier-Rullow started singing the Oasis ballad, ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ in the crowded St. Ann’s Square. The square was filled with mourners who where present to pay their respects and tribute to the families and victims of the Manchester Arena Attack.

Shortly after a moment of silence, Lydia started to belt out the Oasis song. She held onto her bouquet of yellow flowers and sang her heart out. The crowd started to sing along with her during the chorus, many people can be seen to start crying at the sad but united moment.

The lyrics of the song go as follows,

Slip inside the eye of your mind
Don’t you know you might find
A better place to play?
You said that you’d never been
But all the things that you’ve seen
They slowly fade away

So I’ll start a revolution from my bed
Cause you said the brains I had went to my head
Step outside, summertime’s in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
You ain’t ever gonna burn my heart out

And so, Sally can wait
She knows it’s too late as we’re walking on by
Her soul slides away
But don’t look back in anger
I heard you say

Lydia was interviewed by The Guardian she said she did it because she loves Manchester and that Oasis was a massive part of her childhood.

“Don’t look back in anger – that’s what this is about. We can’t be looking backward to what happened, we have to look forwards to the future… We’re all going to join together, we’re all going to get on with it because that’s what Manchester does.”
