At Liam Gallagher’s recent Manchester homecoming show, his set featured more unpredictable moments that define an LG concert. During his rendition of “Wonderwall”, members of the crowd got together to assist one fan in a wheelchair crowd surf in order to get a better view of the Oasis rock legend. There’s a video clip of the special moment below.
Speaking to the Manchester Evening News one fan, Michael Reynolds said, “Obviously, there was the disabled area, but there were 15 of us and I am the only one in a wheelchair. 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.” 30-year-old, Reynolds, had become confined to a wheelchair following a motocross accident.
