Oasis star Noel Gallagher assaulted on stage in Toronto
Monday, September 15, 2008
Security officials quickly apprehended Sullivan and had to restrain Liam from attacking Sullivan. Gallagher was admitted to hospital. After a 15-minute delay the band returned to complete the set but refused to play an encore.
Gallagher wrote on his blog that the attacker "evaded our crack security team and assaulted my midriff."
Noel Gallagher had fallen on his monitor speakers and received bruised hips and ribs which forced Oasis to cancel two scheduled North American concerts, including one in New York. The concert ending their Canadian tour, to be held in London, Ontario, has been rescheduled to December 15.
