Oasis stage invader sentenced to house arrest

May 2010


The man who attacked Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher on stage in Canada has been sentenced to 12 months’ house arrest. Gallagher suffered three broken ribs after Daniel Sullivan pushed him from behind during a show at the 2008 Virgin Music Festival in Toronto. The band later had to cancel concerts in Paris and New York. Sullivan, 48, had pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm. He said he was drunk and couldn’t remember how he got backstage at the concert. His sentence means he will be able to continue working. During the trial, Gallagher said in a statement that he felt like he’d been “hit by a bus” immediately after the attack. “I ended up in a heap on the floor,” he wrote. “I had no idea what had happened.”
