The music venue posted a statement on Facebook and wrote: 'We are appalled by an unprovoked attack on one of our entertainers yesterday. Nothing like this has ever occurred in our 28 year tenure and hopefully never will again.
'Our excellent door staff apprehended the man and the police were called but our entertainer did not wish to press charges at the time and then went back on stage to continue his set.
'Understandably shaken but fortunately with no major injuries.'
On his Facebook account Mr Murray wrote: 'So I'm finally a celeb on social media its kinda funny what happened it happened so fast the f****r could have had a knife and I would have never felt it.
'Thank God he didn't cheers to all my 'mates' who shared it I'm OK just saw red so I gave him a hiding knuckles killing me now.
'The p***k was crying like a baby apologizing to me. Moral of story be nice to one and other. Happy New Year.'
