Epica Host Onstage Marriage Proposal During Santiago, Chile, Concert
An incredibly epic marriage proposal took place last night (Sept. 26) in Santiago, Chile. During a performance from Dutch symphonic metal act Epica, a fan was invited onstage for "something special," before proposing to his girlfriend in front of the audience.
After performing the track 'Sancta Terra,' the band took their first of two encores that night. Before blasting into their track 'Quietus,' guitarist / vocalist Mark Jansen invited fan Robert Castillo onstage and gave him a mic. Castillo began to tell the crowd how he met a woman at a prior Epica show, who would later become "the love of my life."
Castillo then invited his girlfriend, Cynthia Oyarzun, onstage. After hugging and kissing her, Castillo went down on one knee and asked her in English, "Will you marry me?" She accepted his proposal, which was met with cheers from the audience and the band. Epica vocalist Simone Simons came out from backstage to congratulate the couple, wishing them "love, luck and a lot of sex."
