On Saturday, the band Garbage paused in the middle of its concert at Detroit’s Majestic Theater to let a fan propose to his boyfriend onstage.
Lead singer Shirley Manson explained how Dominic had been supportive of a sick friend of the band, and her desire to thank him for his efforts.
“As it happens I was on my Facebook page yesterday, I was on the tour bus and I was going through messages as we do,” Manson told Dominic onstage. “I saw this message from your boyfriend, Scott, and he told me that you were really super amazing.”
Manson then brought Scott out and he popped the question to Dominic, his boyfriend of four years. As the crowd goes wild you can hear Dominic shouting an emphatic “Yes! Yes!”
Spinner reports that, as a final homage to the loving couple, Garbage dedicated the song “Vow” to Dominic and Scott.
Currently, Michigan has a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage but a judge has delayed ruling on a a challenge to that law until after the Supreme Court rules on marriage equality.
Garbage continues its tour of North America with its latest album, Not Your Kind Of People.
