Noll Apologises After Slurring Performance

Former AUSTRALIAN IDOL winner SHANNON NOLL has apologised to fans after performing a gig in his home country while drunk. The singer was appearing at the Country Music Channel (CMC) Rocks The Snowys Festival on Saturday (15Mar08) in Thredbo, New South Wales - but shocked gig-goers after slurring his words in a "virtually incoherent" manner, according to an eyewitness. One festival-goer told the Sydney Daily Telegraph, "(Noll) couldn't stop rambling and raving on about how proud he was to be a country boy - he just wasn't making any sense. "In the end people started booing and yelling out 'just sing' because he was making such a fool of himself." In a statement issued to the newspaper on Monday (17Mar08), Noll says, "It is with great regret that I acknowledge, by my actions during my performance on Saturday night, that I have disappointed my fans, the organisers of CMC Rocks The Snowys, and my band. I apologise unreservedly. "As a result I am taking the necessary steps to ensure that it never happens again." It's not the first alcohol-related slur for Noll - in December 2004 he was charged with drink-driving in New South Wales, fined AUS$765 ($710;GBP355) and was suspended for driving for nine months.
