London, Sep 10 : The fan, who attacked popstar Noel Gallagher during his Toronto gig, has been charged with assault by the Canadian police.
The Oasis guitarist was performing in Toronto, Canada, when 47-year-old Daniel Sullivan knocked the star down to the ground.
"While Noel and the band were performing Morning Glory, the assailant ran on from the back of the stage and pushed Noel from behind, who fell heavily on to his monitor speakers," the Daily Express quoted a statement issued by the band, as stating.
"Despite his injuries Noel returned to the stage a few minutes later to complete the band's set but was taken to hospital after the show to be examined for a suspected fractured rib and ligament damage," the band added.
While the security guards rushed to the stage to halt the scuffle, a spokesman for the festival said that the organisers were gathering more information on the incident.
The incident was captured on camera by a fan and posted on the YouTube website.
