No. You Can’t Get Married, Propose Or Be A Romantic Sap Onstage
I’ve been meaning to write this for a while, but it’s one of those “you don’t think about the hole in your roof until it’s raining” scenarios. When we have big shows, there’s always some guy that want’s to look like a tool (he doesn’t know that) and propose or marry his girl onstage.
It’s great that you’re all drugged up on the “love juice”, but guess what? No one else really cares. They aren’t going to go “awwwwwwwwwwwwwww” when you propose on stage. They are far more likely to throw beer at you and say “get the f@#k off the stage”. You see, the general concert going public buys a concert ticket to see A CONCERT.
People not really caring about your new found bliss aren’t your only problem either, there’s security concerns, time concerns and even insurance concerns. You didn’t think about the insurance did you? These guys can’t have you suing when your bride to be trips over a speaker cable and busts her nose open.
From time to time these kind of things DO happen, but when they do, it’s usually “inside” jobs, like people who have run the bands fan club for ten years or something along those lines. So, in conclusion, rent a nice banquet hall and crank up the jams or something, just don’t expect to get hitched on stage at the next big show.
