Oasis Postpone Tonight's Show In London, Ontario

After being attacked on stage the other night at the Virgin Festival in Toronto, Noel Gallagher has been advised to not perform at tonight's show in London, Ontario. Advice taken...the date is now postponed.

Fans that have purchased tickets for the show will be able to use them for the new date on December 15, 2008. Refunds will be available at point of purchase.

Here are all the details according to the official website:

"Following an incident during Oasis' performance at the Virgin Festival in Toronto, when Noel was attacked by a stage invader Oasis are regrettably being forced to announce that tonight's show in London, Ontario 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. 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 he will not be able to perform tonight. The band are very keen to complete their Canadian tour and the final London, Ontario show will now be rescheduled to Monday the 15th December. Ticket holders are asked to retain their tickets which will be valid for the new date. Refunds for those unable to attend can be made at point of ticket purchase."

If you missed the clip of Noel being attacked, well here it is. He went flying...

Talk about crap security...how the hell did they let at 47 year old dork on stage to be able to push Noel?

What a pussy. Bruised ribs? Come on dude. You're fucking loaded when you're on stage anyway - you can't even feel it.
