VIDEO: Whitesnake bassist proposes to girlfriend on stage

Whitesnake bassist Michael Devin proposed to his girlfriend, actress Drea de Matteo ("The Sopranos", "Sons Of Anarchy"), during the band's concert at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Saturday, and video from the show has surfaced.

“Very, very special & magical night, Boys & Girls,” tweeted singer David Coverdale. “Michael D proposed to his Beloved Drea De Matteo onstage!!! WooHoo.”

“Cheers To Michael & Drea!!!!,” he added in a separate tweet accompanied by an image of a button marked “press for champagne.”

Whitesnake are in the middle of their North American tour in support of “The Purple Album”, a project that sees Coverdale re-recording classic songs from the Deep Purple Mark 3 and Mark 4 records he appeared on, including 1974’s “Burn” and “Stormbringer” and 1975’s “Come Taste The Band.”

“The Purple Album” recently debuted on the US charts, opening at No. 6 on the Top Current Hard Music Albums, No. 15 on Top Current Rock Albums, No. 43 on Top Current Albums and No. 84 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts.

Whitesnake’s North American tour runs to mid-August before the group takes a break, after which they’ll hit Japan and Europe in the fall.
