Oasis Postpone London Ontario TONIGHT Show Due to Noel's Injuries

The last time my fair city made it to the front page of Daily Rock News it involved a fake David Lee Roth and a peanut allergy. This time circumstances are far more nefarious. We’re talking stage attacks, YouTube, a unibrow and a cancelled rock n’ roll show people! (Trust me I am not laughing with him.)

The repercussions from Sunday night's Oasis assault/incident/bums-rush… (insert your preferred noun here). You know the one in which Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher was pushed over while performing at the Virgin Festival in Toronto by a man who rushed the stage continue.

No doubt you’ve seen the video.

Compelling stuff, this might actually be the first Oasis video that held my attention for its entirety. Alas, the sadness continues as earlier today Oasis announced that they have indeed cancelled tonight's (September 9th) show at John Labatt Centre in London, Ontario. The gig has already been rescheduled, and will now take place on December 15th.

Straight from Oasis Central,
"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. He was examined in a local hospital after the band's performance and has been advised to rest. Unfortunately, despite resting up yesterday, the extent of his injuries mean[s] he will not be able to perform tonight."

The rest of Oasis' upcoming dates are still on as scheduled for now.

Lastly, as expected, the man who allegedly assaulted/bums-rushed/whammerjammered Gallagher was identified as 47 year old Daniel Sullivan. He has been charged with assault by Toronto police, according to a CBC report. Sullivan, who resides in Pickering, Ontario, has been released from police custody and is due in court October 24 th.

It's a shame that Oasis had to postpone the London show, and for such a stupid and vicious act too. Okay, Noel Gallagher is a mouthy and pompous goober, but nobody deserves an attack like that.

True. TO is gaining notoriety for concert going shenanigans.

Check out the Jay Reatard incident at the Silver Dollar on YouTube.

I'm sure we haven't heard the end of this.
