Paul McCartney returned to touring for the first time last weekend since being sidelined by illness, and he kicked off the festivities with a fairly memorable event in the form of a marriage proposal.
At his show Saturday night in Albany, N.Y., McCartney spotted a couple in the crowd holding signs. One, from a woman, read “He won’t marry me til he meets you!”
Her significant other confirmed the promise: “I have the ring and I’m 64,” which of course is a perfect age given the Beatles’ classic hit “When I’m Sixty-Four.”
For his second encore, Consequence of Sound reports, McCartney decided to make something happen, bringing the duo onstage. After meeting the former Beatle, the man sings a line from — naturally — “When I’m Sixty-Four” before getting down on one knee to propose, having fulfilled his end of the bargain.
Does she say yes? What do you think?
