Marry me, Noel - said male fan
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 this week.
It came just hours after Gallagher felt the tremors from a Mexican earthquake, which led to him being evacuated from a TV interview.
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 . . . what the f***? Funny though."
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," he wrote.
Recalling the earthquake, Gallagher said he "loved" the experience.
"I'm half way through an interview for TV when all of a sudden the lights which were lighting the room gently started to sway from side to side and the door began to rattle slightly. Now, I didn't take much notice of this until the camera man very softly and calmly said 'We have to leave and go to the outside, there is an earthquake happening'. Just like that.
"So, 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. Mad as f***! 6.9 on the Richter scale it was. I loved it, my first earthquake."
