Pop superstar Robbie Williams delighted fans during his recent concert in Sydney when he stopped the show to help a love-struck fan propose to his girlfriend. The 49-year-old singer handed the microphone to a man in the audience named Daniel, who then asked his girlfriend Lauren for her hand in marriage. The heartfelt proposal was displayed on giant screens for the 38,000 spectators at Allianz Stadium to witness.
As the couple embraced, Robbie Williams humorously commented, "I think she said yes, I'm not sure." He then congratulated the pair and wished them a wonderful life together. The singer shared his personal experience, acknowledging his wife of 18 years and expressing gratitude for her influence on him and his happiness.
In his signature cheeky style, Robbie asked the couple if they had any children, and upon learning they had one, he playfully joked, "You got one! You f***ing cheeky bastard! Obviously not Catholic, Listen go and make a few more." The star also commended the groom-to-be on his proposal, praising it as the best little speech he had heard in a long time.
During the concert, Robbie also paid tribute to music legend John Farnham by performing one of his famous hits, "You're the Voice." Farnham, who had battled cancer, had recently announced his recovery. Robbie sent his love and well wishes to Farnham and his fans as he introduced the classic 80s song.
The Sydney concert featured an energetic setlist with many of Robbie's biggest hits, including "Hey Wow Yeah Yeah," "Let Me Entertain You," "Come Undone," and "Candy." The British pop star will continue his 25th-anniversary tour with upcoming shows in Mount Cotton, Queensland, as well as Melbourne, Geelong, and Swan Valley in Western Australia.
