Noel Gallagher Originally Filed $2 Million Statement of Claim Against Attacker
An intoxicated Daniel Sullivan pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm when with a drunken violent shove pushed guitarist/song writer Noel Gallagher from behind and off stage into a bank of speaker amplifiers breaking three of his ribs.
The incident occurred back in September 2008 during the Virgin Music Festival on the Toronto Island.
Earlier this month of February, Toronto man Daniel (Danny) Sullivan, a now 48 year old from Pickering Ontario, attended a sentencing hearing at downtown Toronto's Old City Hall courthouse.
However, the 'sentencing hearing in front of Mr. Justice Richard Schneider was delayed so that Oasis vocalist Noel Gallagher could attend to make a victim impact statement.' Sourced: CHART Attack
Daniel Sullivan, who is married with children, has never before been in trouble with the law and John Collins (Daniel Sullivan's lawyer) said that this incident was “totally out of character" and that in light of his client's otherwise “exemplary” track record, he would be seeking a conditional, non-custodial sentence.

Noel Gallagher stated that it took him about eight months to fully recover. Parallel to the criminal proceedings, Gallagher filed a statement of claim against his attacker Daniel Sullivan (originally charged with aggravated assault), seeking more than $2 million in damages from Sullivan for compromising his ability to perform and having to cancel five gigs. However, prosecutors eventually agreed to the lesser charge of assault.
