Oasis’ Noel and Liam Gallagher attacked on stage

oasis.jpgRock band Oasis was performing at Toronto’s Virgin Festival on Island Park yesterday in front of 25,000 fans when a man ran from the back of the stage and shoved guitarist Noel Gallagher from behind and knocking him to his knees, and nearly off the front of the stage. He then lunged at lead singer Liam Gallagher, who stepped back as security rushed the intruder. The band took a 10-minute break, while the man was put into a police car and taken away, before resuming with “The Importance of Being Idle.” A Virgin spokesperson says both brothers were fine after the attack. Daniel Sullivan, 47, from Pickering has been charged with assault in connection with the incident and will appear in Toronto’s Old City Hall court house on October 24.

    your immaturity knows no bounds, Nancy.
    I sincerely hope your enormous agression isn’t demonstrated in front of your children, you should heed Jeff’s words – get assistance, what a shame to subject one’s kids to such pent up anger.

    This storyline is just another in a long line of unnecessary violent attacks, people acting out on their agressive impulses, trying to prove something. Sound familiar? Yeah, dead bang on. No need to go to the lengths you do, Nancy, it’s overkill in a very sad way for an adult(?)

    Nancy, I didn’t know you were subjecting your children to pent up anger! Wow! Wait a minute…..I don’t see anything in your comments about your kids, or any anger…hmm, weird, someone seems to be obsessed with you.

    I’m confused wasn’t this article’s topic, “Oasis Noel and Liam Gallagher attacked on stage” not “Nancy and Jo-Anne exchange heated words”?

    jeff not only wrote his comments in an intelligent articulate way, he without a doubt got the better than you, came out miles on top. Miles.

    It is really too bad that people who don’t need fixing are the ones who are attempting to get “fixed”, while the REAL psycho’s cut passengers heads off on public transit, attend Oasis concerts, etc. I hope Noel’s ribs heal up quickly and Oasis can continue their tour.

  9. Nancy • September 11, 2008 @ 4:34 PM

    Yeah, miles of PURE B.S!!!

    Oh yes, and that I LOVE OASIS, no matter their member’s natures.
