A witness in the Oasis camp said: “It all kicked off after a few jibes were thrown back and forward between them. It got totally out of hand very quickly and all the pent-up anger just exploded.
“Noel has been so mild-mannered and above it all, but everyone has a breaking point.
“The fight was split up quickly but Liam smashed up one of Noel’s guitars to make his point.
A STATEMENT FROM NOEL

“It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.
“Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan."
對買了Paris, Konstanz 和 Milan的門票的人感到很抱歉。
Noel Gallagher quits Oasis after Paris ‘altercation’
August 28, 2009
Noel Gallagher quit Oasis tonight (August 28).
Following the Manchester band’s cancelled show at the Paris Rock en Seine festival this evening, he posted the following statement on Oasisinet.com.
“It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight," he wrote. “People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with [singer, his brother] Liam a day longer."
The band pulled out of the Paris show just before they were due on stage, with organisers allegedly displaying a message explaining an “altercation" had caused the cancellation.
Noel Gallagher Quits Oasis With “Great Relief”
Oasis canceled an appearance at a French music festival Friday night after a fight between the Brothers Gallagher, and it seems that guitarist Noel Gallagher has quit the band he helped form in 1991 — again. Before the band’s scheduled set time, one of the festival’s organizers announced to the crowd that Liam and his sibling had “had a fight backstage,” and, according to reports, that “the group no longer exists. They will not play tonight and they are canceling the rest of their European tour.”
The BBC is reporting the split as official on their Website, and that it was Noel who indeed left. In a statement posted to the band’s MySpace page, Noel says he could no longer work with his brother.
“It’s with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight,” the statement reads. “People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer. Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz, and Milan,” he added, referring to the remaining stops on the band’s trek.
這有點難過，但終於能如釋重負的告訴你們，今晚我將離開Oasis。人們隨便他們想要怎麼寫怎麼說，但簡單來說我無法再和Liam一起工作。對買了Paris, Konstanz 和 Milan的門票的人感到很抱歉。
According to reports, the crowd at first took the stage announcement as a joke, until screens at both sides of the stage showed the message “As a result of an altercation within the band, the Oasis gig has been canceled.”
Ironically, Noel walked out of an Oasis gig in Paris nine years ago, temporarily derailing a world tour in 2000. Last year, before the band launched a tour with Ryan Adams, Noel Gallagher told RS, “I am fucking brilliant every night I go out there.”
諷刺的，Noel九年前也曾經退出綠洲在巴黎的演唱，暫時的退出兩千年的世界巡迴之旅。在去年還沒和Ryan Adams一起開始巡迴之前，Noel曾經對他說: “我他媽每晚走出那都感覺好到不行了! “
