An EPICA fan asked his girlfriend to marry him during the Dutch band's concert last night (Wednesday, September 26) at Teatro Caupolicán in Santiago, Chile.
After performing the song "Sancta Terra", EPICA guitarist/vocalist Mark Jansen told the audience that something special was about to happen, and he called a fan from the audience named Roberto Castillo to come on the stage. "Well, I think you have something important to say," said Jansen and handed the microphone to Roberto. Castillo explained to the crowd that he met a woman at a previous EPICA show, and she later became "the love of my life," he said. He then invited his girlfriend, Cynthia Oyarzún, to come on the stage. After embracing her and kissing her, he got down on his knees and asked her in English: "Will you marry me?" Oyarzún answered in the affirmative and the entire audience, along with the band, cheered the happy couple. Even EPICA singer Simone Simons, who was watching the proceeding from backstage, came out with tears in her eyes to congratulate the couple and wish them "love, luck and a lot of sex."
Video footage of the marriage proposal can be seen below.
