Gallagher Drafts Extra Security For Stage

NOEL GALLAGHER is taking no chances with concert security following his onstage attack last year (08) - the rocker has reportedly recruited former British Army officers to guard OASIS.
The guitarist was hospitalised with three broken ribs after a man ran onstage and shoved him into monitor speakers in the middle of a gig in Toronto, Canada in September (08).
The band was subsequently forced to prematurely end its North American tour.
And now Gallagher is ensuring a similar situation doesn't occur again, by stepping up his security team with ex-Special Air Service (SAS) officers trained for warfare.
A source tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "Noel was seriously shook up after he was attacked. It was a freak moment when someone burst through and managed to get on stage. But he wanted to make sure he never had to go through that again.
"There was a time when he was genuinely scared of getting back out there and performing... So he told Liam and the others that he wanted extra security. And, of course, they agreed - after all, it could have been any of them.
"When he heard that a couple of the lads brought in to try out as security were ex-SAS, he knew he was in safe hands."
Gallagher's attacker, Daniel Sullivan, was charged with aggravated assault in a Canada court in January (09).
