OASIS have been forced to cancel a gig in MUNICH tonight (Sunday, December 1) following an attack on frontman LIAM GALLAGHER.

The Oasis singer suffered facial injuries and several broken teeth after he and his entourage were the victims of an "unprovoked attack" by a gang of youths in Munich late last night (Saturday, December 2), according to a statement on the band's official web site (www.oasisinet.com). Drummer Alan White was the only other band member involved in the brawl and he escaped without injury.

Two of the band's security men, who were with the Oasis pair, both needed hospital treatment. One of the security men, who has not been named, is still in hospital under observation after he was knocked unconscious in the attack. The German youths fled before police arrived.

Liam Gallagher and his entourage were arrested and taken to the police station where they were questioned about the incident, before being released without charge.
Liam Gallagher is believed to receiving emergency dental treatment and the band have cancelled tonight's sold-out gig at Munich Zenith.

Oasis' spokeswoman issued this statement: "Some members of Oasis and their entourage were the victims of an unprovoked attack by a group of youths in a Munich club last night. Liam Gallagher sustained facial injuries, including several broken teeth, while two of the group's security guards were forced to seek hospital treatment, one after being knocked unconscious.
"The attackers left the scene before police arrived. The police took several of the Oasis group, including Liam Gallagher, to the local station for questioning in relation to the incident. All those arrested were later released without charge."

Police inquiries continue. The band remain in Germany where they are next due to play at Hamburg's Color-Line Arena tomorrow (December 2).
