Noel Gallagher Attacked On Stage

Oasis leader Noel Gallagher was clobbered on stage at this weekend’s V Festival. The attack happened about a minute into playing the the title track from their album What’s the Story Morning Glory. Noel’s spokesperson said in a statement that the guitarist fell “heavily” on his monitor speakers and was taken to hospital after the show where he was examined for a “suspected fractured rib and ligament damage,” reported the NME.

  1. Press release:

    As a result of the incident on Oasis’ Canadian tour, when Noel was attacked by a stage invader Oasis, are now being forced to announce that tomorrow night’s show at Terminal 5, New York cannot go ahead as planned.

    Noel fell heavily on to his monitor speakers when he was pushed suddenly from behind by his attacker and suffered bruising to his ribs and hip. Unfortunately, he still has not recovered from his injuries and so he will not be able to perform tomorrow.

    All tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.

    Fuck, I wonder if he’s hurt worse than they’re letting on…

  2. This begs another question- I thought Noel just quit Oasis? Did they patch things up?

    Looks like Liam was trying to get a punch at the guy, so maybe so.

  3. New rule- Steve-o does not post during nap time. I saw it on the front page and didn’t realize it was the “On This Day” column.

    So, yeah…heh. How about that band Oasis?
