Their Britpop rivalry was legendary, but Noel Gallagher and Damon Albarn have put their musical differences aside to perform together in aid of a cancer charity.

The Oasis and Blur singers strummed their guitars alongside each other on stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall as part of the Teenage Cancer Trust series of concerts, curated by Gallagher.

They were joined last night by Blur guitarist Graham Coxon for a rendition of the band’s 1999 hit song Tender, with Paul Weller adding to the star-studded line-up by playing the drums.

Fans were delighted by the collaboration, with many taking to Twitter to praise the musicians.
