Where Did It All Go Wrong?

As I get down to sorting through my photos and collecting my thoughts on this year's Virgin Festival which went down this past weekend at Toronto Islands, Noel Gallagher could apparently be mending a broken rib due to some unknown dickhead who ran on stage during headliner Oasis' performance of "(What's The Story) Morning Glory) and pushed him down from behind, and took a swing(unsuccessfully) at his brother Liam before security guards tackled the asshole to the ground. has this to say about the incident (Londonners, keep your fingers crossed for Tuesday night's show):
"Oasis', Noel Gallagher was attacked by an unidentified man during the band's show in Toronto last night. 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.

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 assailant was detained in police custody and will be charged with assault.

No decision has been made regarding Tuesday's concert in London, Ontario, but fans are urged to keep checking the band's web site and local media for updates."

If curiosity is eating at you, there's video of the incident, here and here. (video links via The Panic Manual).
