Oasis Attacker Sentencing Postponed, Gallagher To Make Statement In Court

A man who attacked Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher during a 2008 concert saw his sentencing hearing delayed on Friday.

Daniel Sullivan, 49, has already pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm. Gallagher requested he be allowed to give a victim statement during sentencing and the judge approved.

Sullivan’s lawyer disapproved of the delay, saying the trial has been “hanging around his client’s neck like an albatross.”

The band was in town for the Virgin Music Festival on Toronto Island in September, 2008.

During their set, Sullivan rushed the stage, running past security barriers before pushing Gallagher from behind into a bank of amplifiers.

Gallagher broke three of his ribs and the incident led Oasis to cancel the rest of its Canadian tour.
