Woman proposes to boyfriend at Spector gig in Sheffield

A Spector gig at The Leadmill in Sheffield was interrupted last night (October 18) when a woman got on stage to propose to her boyfriend. Scroll down the page to see video footage of the proposal.

According to sources at the venue, Rachel Singleton was at the gig with her partner Ian when she hopped up onstage and asked frontman Fred Macpherson if she could make an announcement to the audience.

She then went down on one knee and asked Ian if he would marry her. He immediately accepted the offer, much to the delight of the audience and band alike. Spector then got on with their gig, playing 'Chevy Thunder' for the newly engaged pair.

Rachel and Ian have been together for three years and have three children. There is currently no date set for the wedding.

The Spector gig proposal comes just days after another fan of the band, Tariq Khan, got a tattoo of Fred Macpherson inked onto his neck. Fred has seen the tattoo and acknowledged his superfan on Twitter, saying: "Wow, just seen this, what can I say? It's an honour to adorn your neck."

Spector are currently on tour in the UK, playing a host of shows until November 10 when they will head up their largest gig to date at London's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.

The run of shows is in support of the band's debut album 'Enjoy It While It Lasts', which was released in August. They play the Leeds University tonight (October 19).
