the Beatles covers for Japan

LONDON - Liam on Twitter: "Massive thanks to all the musicians for playing last night and especially the fans who were amazing ! Keep the faith, bware of darkness LG".
Japan was mentioned relatively infrequently and none of the harrowing images from Japan that prompted Gallagher to gather his bands of friends together were shown. This gave the gig a heightened sense of detachment from the harsh realities facing young people in Japan now.
Beady Eye, Primal Scream and Paul Weller helped raise over £150,000 at a benefit show last night for victims of the recent tsunami and earthquake in Japan.
The gig at the O2 Brixton Academy, which was orchestrated by Liam Gallagher and the Modfather, also featured sets from Graham Coxon, The Coral and Richard Ashcroft along with a few surprise collaborations and covers by The Beatles.
The Coral were the first to cover the Fab Four as they kicked off the night with their take of Ticket To Ride in between songs from their 2010 album Buttefly House.
Graham Coxon quickly followed as he took the chance to debut new song Running For The Light before wrapping up with 2004 hit single Freakin Out.
Next up was Paul Weller who loaded the early part of his set with The Jam's greatest hits including The Eton Rifles and Start! sandwiched between classic tracks from his 1995 album Stanley Road.
"Thanks for coming tonight and helping our brothers and sisters in Japan," he told the crowd before he introduced Stereophonics frontman Kelly Jones for a surprise collaboration of another Beatles classic Come Together.
Jones then played a short acoustic set as did Richard Ashcroft, who got the whole venue singing for The Verve's Sonnet and Lucky Man. Surprisingly, the only sombre moment came during his set as he performed Bitter Sweet Symphony.
Primal Scream recruited Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock to stand in for Mani at tonight's show which, like their recent tour, leaned heavily towards material from Screamadelica.
The night was rounded off by Beady Eye who played a similar set to that featured on their recent UK tour.
Frontman Liam Gallagher dedicated Kill For A Dream to "all the people in Japan."
Earlier, he also gave a shout out to The Coral sticksman Ian Skelly before launching into Bring The Light.
Before wrapping up the night with the final Beatles cover Across The Universe, he thanked the bands and the crowd for helping to raise funds for the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal.
