The audience paid tribute at the Oasis man's first solo show at Manchester's O2 Ritz.
The crowds at Liam Gallagher's Manchester gig paid tribute to the victims of last Monday's terror attack.
The Oasis man played his first ever solo show at the O2 Ritz Manchester, where the audience chanted "stand up for the 22" during the encore in reference to the 22 people who were tragically killed at Manchester Arena.
Watch our video footage of the moving moment here:
Gallagher also paid tribute by lighting 22 candles on the stage.
The show opened with the first song from the first Oasis album, Rock 'N' Roll Star, before leading his new band into another Oasis classic, Morning Glory.
The setlist mixed Oasis classics like Slide Away and D'You Know What I Mean, with new material, including the first airing of Liam's debut solo single, Wall Of Glass, which is released later this week.
The star also sang a moving rendition of Live Forever, which he previously predicted would be a "tough" track to sing.
