Oasis in Munchen Bust-Up!

By shane

OASIS have cancelled at least one gig following a brawl this weekend in Munchen (Munich), Germany.

Reports are still filtering in, but we've got some slightly different takes on exactly what happened.

According to a report that just came across the Reuters wire, four members of Oasis, including frontman Liam Gallagher, were arrested following a fight at the Bayerischer Hof hotel. The report says that the younger Gallagher "brawled with guests" before three other unnamed band members (NOT including guitarist Noel Gallagher) jumped into the fray. The four were arrested by police and released later in the day.

The band's official website, www.oasisinet.com, has a slightly different take on what happened, and left this post:

"Several members of Oasis and their entourage were the victims of an unprovoked attack by a group of youths in a Munich club last night, where they were during their European tour. Liam Gallagher sustained facial injuries, including several broken teeth, while two of the group's security guards were forced to seek hospital treatment, one after being knocked unconscious. The attackers left the scene before police arrived. The police took several of the Oasis group, including Liam, to the local station for questioning in relation to the incident. Police enquiries continue. Meanwhile, all those arrested including Liam have been released. Due to Liam's injuries the concert tonight in Munich has had to be postponed."

NME says that Liam is "believed to be undergoing emergency dental treatment." NME is also contradicting the Reuters story, saying that Oasis drummer Alan White was the only other band member involved in the incident.

No word yet as to whether or not this will affect other dates on the band's European tour, but with Oasis' tumultuous touring record, odds are pretty good that other dates may be cancelled/rescheduled. We just hope that no innocent Germans landed on the wrong side of Andy "The Destroyer" Bell's legendary fists of rage.
