Oasis never fails to bring the drama

Amazingly, this time at VirginFest on Toronto Island last night, the drama was not self-inflicted. Some crazed fan somehow got on the stage during Morning Glory and shoved Noel from behind. Check out the video below. Noel goes flying (and apparently crashes into a monitor). He later had to be taken to the hospital where he was treated for a possible cracked rib and some ligament damage.

After jumping Noel the fan went after Liam who evaded the would be attacked before security went in and subdued him [and then Liam tried to get at the guy and might have landed a left hand].

Where I was at the show we couldn't tell what happened. Everything cut out and the stage went silent and dark. To the boys credit they came back and finished the show, even if it was a somewhat abbreviated show. Noel's fine work on Don't Look Back In Anger was the evening's standout performance, although The Masterplan and Cigarettes & Alcohol were early favourites.

Oh yeah, and it must be said, they sounded great.
