...in Toronto last night.
1.32 into the video. Watch Liams reaction :)
and i dont think they've been back to the town it happened in since. newcastle i recall. 94?
wasn't that gig live on Radio 1. And wasn't it rather famous for the bloke who'd punched Noel being persued back into the crowd by the rest of the band?
but it is funny
If it happened to Sky Larkin you'd all be up in arms.
I'd give them a medal.
gone for the twatty angle as it's not "wahey, I've pushed you over" but "wahey, I've deliberately pushed you off the front of a stage that's actually fairly likely to result in injury/broken guitar".
ha ha ha ha
"Brilliant. Smashed Noel into Row C. Great."
for Noel. No one should expect that kind of shit.
but i think it's pretty good the way they carry on after that. it wasn't a small push either! especially when you see other bands stopping gigs after far less
that's such a shite thing to do, on so many levels. If the guy wanted a bit of fame he should'ave at least attempted a fist fight with him and had his head kicked in rather than cowardly pushing him off the stage. And if people start going "ha oasis R shit, deserved it lol" i'll go postal, i swear.
deserved it lol
/predictable response ;)
But... ha oasis R shit. They did deserved it lol.
must be quite painful as well, and expensive if it got damaged. I reckon that bloke got the ultimate kicking backstage.
funny though, noone was hurt, in my eyes they are both cunts , the guy who pushed him and noel haha and it would still be funny if it was someone i like, so long as they wernt hurt haha just like noel wasnt. people need see the funny side as well as the 'what a cunt that guy is' side of it
Violence isn't funny just because it's directed to a musician you don't like. Grow up.
it hardly looks really violent, and id laugh probably whoever it was so long as they wernt hurt.
I like how the guy tries to make a clean escape, but it tackled by like 5 guys and then has to face an enraged Liam.
Yeah it was a shitty thing to do.
I hope he gets a royal kicking
When Acrade Fire had a bottle thrown at them everyone on here was up in arms.
I fucking hate Oasis, but that was pathetic. Stupid cunt didn't even have the balls to push Noel face to face, he crept up behind him. Why ruin a gig for all those people who've paid a lot of money to see them? I can't stand Oasis so I show my dislike for Noel by not putting money in his pocket. The guy probably thinks he's hilarious, but he goes home after probably taking a beating and maybe facing criminal prosecution. Noel goes back to being a rock star.
Liam's reaction is brilliant
I just found it kind of comical
plus what LordLuciusBanter wrote. Some people really need to grow the fuck up.
Just realised that could be read as me saying that wggrace and LordLuciusBanter need to grow up. Just to clarify - I was agreeing with both of you, and pointing out that certain other people need to grow up.
most people hear seem to agree it was a dicky thing to do (so far). I think after the initial "HA! That Noal Gallagher twat got shoved!" people are more "Wow, that guy was a cunt".
Although that does make the "hope the guy got battered backstage" type comments a tad hypocritical.....
what happened to Dimebag Darrel this kind of thing can never really be taken that lightly anymore.
by some bloke from the crowd with a gun
Captures my thoughts exactly.
he pushed him off the stage by the looks of it, which will be 6 ft+ high at an oasis gig.
He could've ruffled his hair or pinched his arse for all i care. Fact is, the idiot shouldn't have been up there.
He lunged into him.
Also being pushed in the back when you're not suspecting it and concentrating on something else will make that fall a lot more awkward
I know we all hate Oasis and stuff but this is just terrible.
but bloody brilliant that its caught on camera. So conflicted.
peoples replies at the top of the page who think its funny - you sound like dicks. Its the kind of thing a 5 year old would think is funny.
Wonder why he picked noel and not liam?
i thought he'd fallen off the stage, but he just fell over with the guitar at his side, which is pretty mild really.
still think the guy's a bit of a jeb-end.
that's deliberately open-ended. ;)
I'm not a big fan of Oasis for the record. So unfair on the people who've paid good money to see Oasis.
I'm suprised he even managed to get on the stage without security noticing or taking action tbh though.
The way that the guy just comes flying out from the back of the stage and crashes in to him. And I don't care who the band is, I just think in a slapstick way, it's bloody hilarious.
Disclaimer: It is, however, made funnier by the fact that it's Oasis.
Instant worldwide publicity makes it all the more likely to happen again too. There's a lot of dicks out there.
I'm no great fan of Oasis but it was a lousy thing to do. The consequences could have been extremely serious.
The people saying that being pushed over is nothing much need to be pushed over a bit more regularly.
getting pushed over is very mild next to falling off a stage head first, which is what i thought had happened at first.
it was a really stupid thing to do, but there's something morbidly fascinating about watching famous people fall over, isn't there?
what anyone thinks... i'd be really interested in seein the backstage footage.
he must have been given a royal kicking.
bet he's in worlds of pain.
but you can't judge a whole website on the basis of a few people up top finding it funny
what idiot would do that?
it is far from funny, it looks like it would be quite painful.
I'm surprised at you.
that this is a time when Noel and Liam's macho posturing actually bears some sort of fruit, and beat the little shit up. Actually i hope that guy got smacked by every single person in that room.
that little shite better have got some fine or kicking or something that'll stop him from leaving his bed for a few weeks
being pushed from behind is baaaad. I felt sorry for Noel.
had it coming, why does everyone care about him so much, the man's an idiot.
bet it was Jay Z.
Fair play to the guy for taking it in his stride.
That's a fucking horrible thing to happen.
by a jealous fan in London, I think, who thought his girlfriend fancied Zappa. Zappa got a broken vertebrae, I think
I like the "omg, what about Dimebag Darrell responses, this is exactly the same". Erm, not quite
there is the question of how good their security might be if someone can end up on stage.
if someone has set their mind on it they'll probably make it onto a stage unless they try to do it right next to security. Snipers in the lighting rig is the only answer
i'm still full of rage today and hope the little cunt was pummelled mercilessly.
is the king of these...
although tool have the single best one ever
Just looked like the fans, security and the band in a 3 way mêlée.
i think one person in the crowd started beating on another (may have been security on fan or the other way round), getting out of hand, and then just chaos.
smacks someone over the head with his bass thats gotta hurt
Wouldn't normally wish a kicking on anyone, but he deserves what he (proably) got.
Anyone think the "give us five minutes" was just so they could pummel him a bit???
"According to the band's website, the star "fell heavily onto his monitor speakers". He may have fractured his rib and sustained ligament damage. "
It would have been a nasty fall especially considering
a) the monitor speakers that would have been below the stage
b) the fact he had a guitar on him at the time would have limited his ability to protect himself from the fall.
He's probably lucky it's no worse.
monitors are onstage, around his mic.
and i like oasis too
i realize this was at a festival so not everyone in the audience was there for oasis but come on! no matter how much you despise a band, there is no reason to push over a poor unsuspecting guitarist. :(
I'll never understand why some twats think it's acceptable to go to gigs and throw stuff at or physically assault band members.If you were working in a normal job and people started dolling out such behaving in such a ridiculous way the police would quite rightfully be contacted.
Tony McCarroll's still pretty pissed of isn't he?
Poor old Noel!
this is the most boring thread ever.
a gazillion replies saying "oh, OBVIOUSLY i dont like oasis!!!11!, but thats such a twattish thing to do"
I mean I can't say I'm a huge Oasis fan, and haven't really paid attention for the last few things they've released but what he did were the actions of a complete and utter twat in my opinion.
the most indie thread of all time.
It makes me want to cry with how fucking earnest it is.
and I like Noel Gallagher mostly, from what I've heard of him
that did make me laugh
you can see Weller getting in on the act at the back!
But what a prick!
but liam's reaction makes funny viewing
what the story was. No one ever has with Oasis.
Shitty thing to do.
Thats a 335.
deserved to be battered with Noel's Gibson guitar...
Shitty thing to do.
That's a Gibson 355.
if it was set in 1989 and it was james hetfield getting pushed over...
during a show on the black album tour, and he still managed to keep going for the rest of the tour.
do fuck off.
I hate the piss-weak argument on this site that people only act in certain ways for scene points, or whatever.
I, personally, thought the fella who pushed Noel seemed an unnecessary shithead.
moral outrage over pushing on internet is horrible
I am about as far as possible from being an Oasis fan these days, but there is NO EXCUSE WHATSOEVER for anyone to do something like that.
I genuinely hope Noel's OK and recovers from his injuries quickly.
I think its funny how people have to announce they dont like oasis in this thread.
It gives you indie points!
it was hilarious
Noels a twat, the guy was a twat so they cancel out.
That looks like Liam actually controlling himself for once.
to my day!!
and the thing is, you are totally correct about the writing and playing thing, and I don't even like Oasis much.
Not you, Lorne. You're alright though.
person says 'even though i don't like oasis that much' i'm going to scream
about lionel hutz in the simpsons? i so am..
and to be fair there's a good reason, no matter how many people said it. Specifically, a number of people on here and elsewhere have said they found it funny, and you suspect this is not because they find the actual act funny, but because they don't especially care for Noel. You would presume that if it was a member of their favourite band at a gig they attended, they'd be outraged.
So it's well worth pointing out that this is just wrong. Noel took a hit to the chest as he fell. It could have been his head. That's not right.
as well as being quite funny.
it was a bit of a cowardly move to pull though, a punch in the face would have been better
But I love this thread more just for the people taking the moral high ground, hilarious.
So, the moral high ground in this debate is: "injuring someone without provocation isn't right"?
What the fuck is the low ground?
noel has broken his ribs?
massive oasis fan and think that is a cuntish thing to do, regardless of whether you like the band, the music, noel etc or not.
but must admit that it looks quite funny when you see it. Broken ribs are no laughing matter though, and as someone who is currently nursing a broken ankle I can offer my full sympathies and that people who take their music so seriously that they wish harm on other people need a greater sense of perspective...
