Paul McCartney helps couple get engaged on stage

Sir Paul McCartney's second encore produced a memorable proposal for a New York couple.

McCartney pulled the middle-aged couple on stage during his concert Saturday evening in Albany, N.Y., at the Times Union Center to help them get engaged in front of more than 13,000 people, the Gannett Albany Bureau reports.

Before popping the question, John Dann, 64, fittingly sang a verse of the Beatles hit, "When I'm Sixty-Four." "Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm 64?"

Then McCartney, 72, and his band joined in. Dann dropped down on one knee and his girlfriend said yes. McCartney was back on tour after being unable to play for seven weeks due to a virus, which landed him in a hospital in Tokyo.

"And they booked us for the wedding," McCartney joked.

During the concert, the couple held neon green signs, "I've got the ring and 'I'm 64" and "He won't marry me 'til he meets you," that caught McCartney's eye, according to the Gannett Albany Bureau.

After the pair returned to their seats, McCartney and his band followed up the engagement by playing "Helter Skelter."

What was the music legend trying to imply about marriage there?

en I'm 64?"
