Paul McCartney live: Echo Arena, Liverpool

Paul McCartney performed at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England, on 28 May 2015.

It was the 74th show of the Out There Tour, which lasted for 91 dates between May 2013 and October 2015. This concert was seen by 9,274 fans.

McCartney previously performed at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on 20 December 2011.

Prior to a performance of ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ two fans, Fabrice Gueho and Diane McEvoy, were invited onto the stage. Gueho was holding a sign in the crowd saying: “All my loving I will give to her if you let me propose on stage tonight”.

I was so overwhelmed when a security guard came over and asked us to follow him to the side of the stage. I thought I might faint and was just shaking. Myself and Fabrice had always said it would be amazing if we could do something like this and I knew about the sign of course, but we never thought it would work and I had no idea he had the beautiful ring with him.

The couple, both originally from France, met in Liverpool and bonded over their shared love of The Beatles. McEvoy moved to the city to study for a masters in The Beatles, Popular Music and Society at Liverpool’s Hope University, and also works at The Beatles Story tourist attraction.

Gueho bought front-row tickets for the concert and held his banner high in the hope of being spotted by McCartney. They were brought onto the stage and after some introductions McCartney told Gueho: “OK, get on your knee, son.”

Unexpectedly, Gueho said: “Paul and Diane, would you both marry me?” When McCartney mock-protested the fan said to him: “Oh sure, just her, not you. But I want to marry you!”

McCartney told him: “Fabrice, I’ve got a feeling you’re not serious about this. Come on, get serious, do it. We’re watching.”

After Guero finally proposed to McEvoy, McCartney told them: “Well done you two, congratulations. And if I was you, love, I’d get him to ask you again in the morning when he’s not pissed!”

I wasn’t scared but she was. I tried to make her comfortable by laughing, she was shaking. McCartney was great, just like a normal person. He is nearly 73 and is still playing really well. It was amazing.
