The former Beatle played a show at the Liverpool Echo Arena on Thursday (May 28)
A fan proposed to his girlfriend at Paul McCartney‘s concert in Liverpool on Thursday (May 28).
The former Beatle played a show at the Liverpool Echo Arena last night, following recent concerts in London and Birmingham. At the gig, McCartney invited Fabrice Gueho and Diane McEvoy on to the stage mid-set, where Gueho asked McEvoy to marry him.
In response to Gueho’s initial nerves, McCartney attempted to spur the man on. “Come on, get serious, do it, we’re all watching,” he said, somewhat abruptly. Gueho proceeded to get down on one knee to propose, with McEvoy saying “yes” to a loud cheer from the crowd. See the proposal in the video below.
The Liverpool Echo reports that McEvoy works at the city’s Beatles Story museum.
McCartney teamed up live with Dave Grohl for a rendition of ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ at his London show on Saturday (May 23). He also performed his 1980 track ‘Temporary Secretary’ live for the first time ever.
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that Paul McCartney was close to being cast in hit US sitcom Friends. The former Beatle was originally asked to play Ross Geller’s British father-in-law in 1998.
