SAN DIEGO (KFMBFM) — KAABOO Del Mar was the place to be for music-lovers this weekend – and for one San Diego couple the music festival became the site for an extra special moment. As Billy Idol performed Saturday evening, a fan in the audience was dancing with herself when her boyfriend surprised her and proposed.
The bride-to-be recounted the events to KFMBFM’s Robin Roth. Emily shared that she and now fiancé Tyler fell in love at Outside Lands, a multi-day music festival in San Francisco similar to KAABOO, back in 2015 where they saw Billy Idol perform. When they saw that Idol would be performing in Del Mar this year they jumped at the chance to see him again.
It was hot in the city as Emily said Idol performed “Rebel Yell” with the crowd dancing and singing along. Then Tyler began to whisper in her ear. When Emily turned around she found him down on one knee with a ring box open. Emily said “yes!” and the crowd around them took pictures and congratulated the newly engaged couple.
Just then the rocker went on to perform his hit “White Wedding” - an apt ending for this rockin’ engagement story.
We wish Emily and Tyler all the best as they rock the cradle of love for years to come.
See below for pictures of their special moment.
