Toronto police later charged Daniel Sullivan, 48, of Pickering, Ontario, with assault.

Ricky Hatton packs a powerful punchline on stageThe Oasis star was playing his guitar when he was shoved from behind.

Security guards also piled on to the stage to halt the scuffle, with Liam Gallagher, who had been mid-song, also in pursuit.

The band left the stage, but later resumed their headline set.

A statement released on behalf of the band at the time said: ”While Noel and the band were performing Morning Glory, the assailant ran on from the back of the stage and pushed Noel from behind, who fell heavily on to his monitor speakers.

”Despite his injuries Noel returned to the stage a few minutes later to complete the band’s set but was taken to hospital after the show to be examined for a suspected fractured rib and ligament damage.”

Oasis was forced to postpone further international concerts following the attack.

Sullivan pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm during a court hearing in November last year.

He was sentenced today at the Ontario Court of Justice, Old City Hall, Toronto.

A spokesman for the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General said Sullivan was handed a conditional sentence of 12-months to be served in the community not in custody.

He said the Crown requested a jail term of between six to eight months, but the court did not agree to this.

The conditions placed on Sullivan’s sentence include: abstaining from alcohol, no contact with the complainant, no weapons and the continuation of any treatment or counselling as prescribed by medical advisors and approved by his supervisor
