Shannon Noll was accused of punching a bouncer in the face outside of Adelaide’s famed Crazy Horse strip club in January last year, but had the charges dropped.

‘We don’t do it anymore and not just because of that,’ Shannon said. 

He said touring, his age and his voice are factors.

‘I’m older [at 42] and wiser, and you just don’t bounce back as easily,’ he added, saying how he wants to give fans the best performance every time. 

Talking about people taking him seriously, Shannon said with all the memes and jokes, he doesn’t pay attention to them as he’s still selling tickets to his shows.

‘The thing is, people come to the shows so that doesn’t really matter to me,’ Shannon said.

Last April, an assault charge laid against Shannon Noll over a scuffle outside an Adelaide strip club has been dropped by prosecutors.

The 41-year-old singer was accused of assaulting a bouncer after he was removed from the Crazy Horse Revue on Hindley Street in the early hours of January 15.

But prosecutors withdrew the charge in Adelaide Magistrates Court on Thursday in a hearing that Noll did not attend.
