Paul McCartney Helps 64-Year-Old Propose to His Girlfriend

A man from Rochester got the thrill of a lifetime when he popped the question to his long-time girlfriend on-stage at a Paul McCartney concert.

During his performance at the Times Union Center in Albany, NY on July 5th, Sir Paul McCartney spotted John Dann and Claudia Rogers in the audience with two neon signs. "He won't marry me 'til he meets you," Rogers' sign read. Her soon-to-be fiancé Dann, held up a poster saying, "I have the ring and I'm 64."

McCartney stopped the show and invited the couple onto the stage. Once they joined him, McCartney asked, "Are you really going to go through with the proposal?" Dann jokingly responded, "I've come too far to back out now."

Watch the adorable proposal here: 

Then, in front of over 13,000 people, Dann grabbed the mic and sang his rendition of "When I'm 64" while McCartney strummed along on his guitar. 

After finishing the song, the groom-to-be got on one knee and said "Sweetheart will you marry me?" Rogers, beaming with happiness, excitedly said 'yes!'

Congratulations to the lovebirds!
