Hucknall Attacked Mid-Performance

SIMPLY RED star MICK HUCKNALL took evasive action during a Cuban gig earlier this week (begs29AUG05), when a fan jumped up onstage and attacked him.

A stunned Hucknall was midway through his performance when he was forced to push a man trying to punch him into the venue's orchestra pit.

The NEW FLAME singer then walked offstage and ended the concert while police arrested the assailant.

Hucknall's manager IAN GRENFELL says, "It was bizarre. What is so worrying is that we don't know what the man's intentions were.

"He was a Cuban American in his twenties and he stormed the stage and tried to attack Mick.

"Police say the man was stoned but what is unclear is why he took exception to Mick."
