Noel Gallagher has revealed he knocked back a marriage proposal at a gig – from a male fan.
The chart star was left bemused by the cheeky request as he was performing a gig at the Teatro Metropolitan in Mexico City.
It came just hours after Gallagher felt the tremors from a Mexican earthquake, which led to a TV interview being abruptly ended.
Writing in his online blog, the musician said: “I’ll forever remember my own show for a funny scene with someone holding up a placard that said ‘Noel will you marry me?’.
“Thing is, it was actually a guy – and he looked genuinely upset when I informed him I was already spoken for... ”
Gallagher, 44, said the show also marked a notable first during his many years of gigging. “The support band got booed off. Booed off! I’ve never seen that in nearly 20 years.”
Recalling the earthquake, Gallagher said he “loved” the experience.
“We all get evacuated into the car-park and the whole place is just gently rocking back and forth, a bit like being on a boat. I loved it, my first earthquake.”
