A "security breach" resulted in a concertgoer storming the stage during Oasis' headlining set at Toronto's Virgin Festival Sunday. The disgruntled fan pushed guitarist Noel Gallagher during the song "(What's the Story) Morning Glory," but was tackled by the band's crew before he could get to singer Liam Gallagher. According to a band statement, Noel "fell heavily onto his monitor speakers" and was treated at a local hospital "for a suspected fractured rib and ligament damage."
Whether or not Oasis will go on with their London, Ontario, gig tomorrow night is uncertain, although they did finish performing last night. Updates are available at Oasisinet.com. As for the status of Noel's attacker, he's been arrested and is facing assault charges.
