Video: Couple's High Hopes after-on stage engagement at Belfast Kodaline gig

By Sarah Tulloch

The gig at Custom House Square on Thursday was undoubtedly a night to remember for one couple.

During a performance of Kodaline's - arguably - most romantic single, The One, the band paused to allow one fan to take to the stage with his invite his girlfriend on stage - much to the crowd's bemusement.

Was it you who popped the question? We'd love to hear from you. Contact or call 9026 4420.

As Custom House Square lit up by waving phones, the man got down on one knee and proposed. And much to the 5,000 strong crowd's relief she said yes, and they whooped and applauded, sharing the couple's excitement.

"Give it up for the happy couple,"  front man Steve Garrigan cheered before asking the crowd if they could sing the last chorus of the song to the newly-engaged couple one more time, unaccompanied to give the end to a perfect proposal.

The One was originally written by Steve Garrigan, the band's lead singer, for the wedding of an engineer for the band, Phil Magee.

The Dublin band delighted the Belfast crowd with their biggest hits - including High Hopes - and were the latest to appear at the venue for the CHSq Presents series of summer gigs, after performances from George Ezra and Kasabian.
