Noel Gallagher has revealed he knocked back a marriage proposal at a gig from a male fan.

The musician was left bemused by the cheeky request as he was performing a gig at the Teatro Metropolitan in Mexico City.

It came just hours after Gallagher felt the tremors from a Mexican earthquake, which led to him being evacuated from a TV interview. Writing in his blog, the pop star said: "I'll forever remember my own show for a funny scene with someone holding up a placard that said 'Noel will you marry me?'.

"Thing is, it was actually a guy - and he looked genuinely upset when I informed him I was already spoken for...funny though." Gallagher said the show marked a first during his many years of gigging. "The support band got booed off. Booed off! I've never seen that in nearly 20 years," he wrote.
