When it comes to getting engaged, there are a number of ways to go about asking another person for their hand in marriage. Skyscrapers, baseball game jumbotrons, and hiding a ring in a glass of champagne and praying the other person doesn’t swallow it. These are all great options.
But if you and your significant other both love the same artist, then what better venue for a proposal than a concert? Here are seven artists who love helping fans get one step closer to saying ‘I do.’
While Coldplay frontman Chris Martin may have consciously uncoupled from ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, he still believes in helping fans consciously couple up. During a recent show in Vegas, Martin gave a fan the chance to proposal to his girlfriend as long as he kept it quick. People have shit to do.
Jason Mraz’s 2008 song, “I’m Yours,” is a staple for any wedding reception, so what better song to have as the backdrop when proposing at a Jason Mraz concert? In 2011, the folk singer gave fan Ryan Morris the chance to propose to his girlfriend in front of a packed Dallas stadium. Because really, who’s going to say ‘no’ while “I’m Yours” is playing?
Ed Sheeran concerts are not only one of the most popular musical events for fans to get engaged at (a simple YouTube search proves this statement), but it’s also a great spot for Sheeran’s friends to use as the backdrop for their proposals. Kodaline guitarist Jason Boland proposed to his girlfriend in front of 80,000 screaming Sheeran fans, while in July 2015, Rixton’s Jake Roche proposed to Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson.
In 2012, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis went from underground hip hop artists to household names thanks to their anthem of acceptance with “Same Love.” Performing the single in concert set the mood for one couple’s engagement during a show in Nebraska in 2013.
When John Silver wanted to propose to his girlfriend and professional dancer Ashley Everett, he asked his girlfriend’s boss for some help. When your boss is Beyoncé, that means getting engaged on stage in front of thousands of screaming fans in the middle of a concert in St. Louis. Everett said yes, with Beyoncé joking, “Now let’s see you do choreography after that.” She still slayed.
Adele’s May concert in Denmark was an especially memorable event for fans André Söderberg and Simon Carlsson, with Söderberg taking the opportunity to be on stage with the famous singer and his boyfriend to propose. We’re not sure who was more shocked—Adele or Carlsson. To celebrate the couple’s engagement, Adele gave them quite the wedding gift, saying, “Should I be your surrogate if you have children? I’d love to have a baby with someone Swedish.” Gentleman, say yes.

Kelly Clarkson’s impressive discography has no shortage of love songs and that includes her 2015 single, “Heartbeat Song.” While Clarkson’s concerts are a great spot for proposals, her music videos are an even better location. Zac Woodward and boyfriend Chad Laboy appeared in the video together and during their break from shooting killed time by declaring their undying love for one another and got engaged. Time to celebrate at the craft services table!
