For once, kids, DO try
this at home – just not at concerts.
By Fred Mills
Sunday night at Toronto’s
V Festival, headliner Oasis had an incident during the middle of their set: as
they played “Morning Glory” a member of the audience climbed onstage from the side,
raced across to Noel Gallagher and shoved the guitarist to the ground. Apparently Gallagher was not injured,
however, for after a short delay, the band resumed playing. Security grabbed
the assailant, who was later charged with assault on Gallagher. As of this
writing he remains unidentified.
The two-day festival also included Saturday headliners Foo
Fighters, plus Bloc Party, Paul Weller, Silversun Pickups, the Kooks,
Weakerthans and others.
A fan in the audience captured the Gallagher incident on video
and posted it to YouTube (below). Watch for it at about 1:30 into the clip.
And expect a rash of similar boneheaded acts to commence at
a concert near you when mooks and their digi-cam wielding friends aim for their
15 minutes of YouTube fame….
