OASIS have been forced to cancel a second gig 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 (December 2). A show in the city was subsequently postoned.
Now, a date at the Hamburg Colorline Arena has been pulled (December 2). A statement issued to NME.COM reads: “Oasis have been forced to postpone a second show as a result of the injuries sustained by Liam on Saturday night in Munich.
“Tonight’s show in Hamburg at the Colorline Arena has been postponed while Liam has further dental work to repair his two front teeth. The two postponed shows should be rescheduled shortly.”
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 youths fled before police arrived. Drummer Alan White was the only other band member involved in the brawl and he escaped without injury.
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.
In other developments, German police have claimed Liam kicked a police officer during the fracas.
A police spokesperson told BBC news that one of the officers who attended the incident was “kicked in the chest with full force by Liam Gallagher, the frontman of the band, and suffered minor injuries”.
