The message was the chorus of “Don’t Look Back in Anger” by Manchester-based rock band Oasis.
It started with one woman who was carrying a bouquet of yellow flowers. Then, the whole crowd joins in with the rousing chorus:
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
As the song dies out, a man can be heard yelling “I love you, Manchester!” before everyone breaks into applause.
“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,” the singer told a Guardian reporter. “We’re all going to join together, we’re all going to get on with it because that’s what Manchester does.”
