Doctors tell the lad to get some rest.

According to a
message posted to the Oasis website, Noel Gallagher has had a CT scan to see
how extensive the injuries he sustained in that onstage assault in Toronto
earlier this month, and the results indicate he suffered “three broken and
dislodge ribs.” Doctors tell him not to perform for “at least another week.

 

As a result,
shows in England, Germany and France have been cancelled. You can
read the full site posting below. Meanwhile, go HERE if you want to read BLURT’s
first-hand account of the incident – our own Kyle Gustafson was in Toronto on September 7
photographing the Virgin Mobile Festival when the assault took place.
