Watch Noel Gallagher Get Thumped!

Polite Canadian shoves Oasis guitarist in Toronto

Noel Gallagher was attacked by a member of the crowd at the V Festival in Toronto, Canada at the weekend. What was that all aboot?

As the band played ‘What’s The Story (Morning Glory) a man rushed onto the stage and shoved Noel hard from behind. Reports from Canada suggest that the assailant was arrested and charged with assault.

You can see the clip below. Watch out for Liam’s reaction…

The poster, backpackdave08, sends Noel a message of support with the video: "Noel: I am sorry to have to witness this act of violence inflicted on you in my home country (or anywhere at all) through my camera viewfinder. I hope the rest of your stay in Toronto is more uneventful."
