Oasis: ‘We thought Noel Gallagher had been stabbed in Toronto’

Liam and Noel say they feared the worst after attack

OasisLiam and Noel Gallagher have revealed that they initially thought that Noel had been stabbed when he was attacked onstage in Toronto recently.

Noel Gallagher was attacked while Oasis headlined the V Festival in the Canadian city on September 7. He suffered three broken ribs, causing the band to cancel a slew of gigs.

Liam and Noel have since explained that in the confusion they feared the guitarist had been knifed.

“I thought he (Noel) had been stabbed,” Liam told MTV2 Gonzo. “It was fucking dark, but it could’ve been a lot worse, that’s the way I look at it. The guy’s gonna get dealt with.”

Noel added: “‘Cos it had been raining and there were puddles around I thought I’d been stabbed. For a split second I shit it.”
