Kasabian step in to help couple in love.
According to the Halifax Courier, Samantha Sugden’s boyfriend Gavin Baron (her partner of ten years) told her he’d propose, if she managed to get a ticket to the band’s Halifax gig.
Ms Sugden (33) queued outside the Victoria Theatre hoping to score tickets to see the rockers in the city. After managing to get just 15 people away from the top of the queue, Samantha was unlucky in her attempt to bag the tickets for the show scheduled for 23rd March.
However, according to The Sun, after hearing about the news, bassist Chris Edwards stepped in and offered the pair an invite on their guest list because it was ‘the right thing to do’.
Edwards explained, ‘I watched the Courier video and saw how long the queues were. We were buzzing to see how many people are still so passionate about live music.’. When asked about the ultimatum from Sugden’s boyfriend, the bassist replied, ‘I thought it sounded a bit harsh at first, but he’s got to go through with it now.’
Groom-to-be Gavin commented, ‘I can’t believe it. I thought it was a wind-up to begin with. I love everything about Kasabian and I cannot wait for it now. It was only meant to be a bit of a joke at first but I’m going to propose, yes.’
After all that, he’d better! Gavin concluded, ‘I want to do it properly though and spend a bit of time saving for a nice ring. She deserves it.’
Kasabian play the Halifax Victoria theatre on March 23rd before heading to the Royal Albert Hall on March 24th.
