UK Tour Goes Ahead As Scheduled

Oasis' guitarist Noel Gallagher has given fans an update on his progress as he continues to recover from a recent onstage attack in Toronto.

The band were forced to cancel a number of dates earlier this month, after the assault forced the cancellation of the band's US tour as well as some appearances in Europe. Now Gallagher is apparently well enough to begin rehearsing with the rest of Oasis, but he is still suffering the effects of the assault.

Gallagher was interviewed on Absolute Radio, where he told Christain O' Connell that "I'm on a lot of painkillers at the moment. The trouble with painkillers is they're only fun when you're not meant to be on them. When you're actually in pain they just take the edge off it."

"The doctor said that at my age it should take about another four weeks to heal. It's making me walk and stand different though 'cos of the pain. I've been rehearsing though, so I know I can do the rest of the tour."

Oasis will begin their UK tour with a sold out show at the Liverpool Echo Arena on October 7th. There are no tickets left for any dates on the band's British tour.
