British rocker Noel Gallagher was evacuated from a TV studio in Mexico City on Wednesday (11Apr12) after an earthquake struck in the middle of his interview.
The former Oasis star was in Mexico this week (beg09Apr12) for a series of shows in the capital and on the second day of his trip, he visited a local TV station to promote the gigs.
However, the interview was interrupted when the building started to shake as tremors from a 6.4-magnitude earthquake in the western state of Michoacan began to rock Mexico City.
Gallagher was safely evacuated along with the TV studio's staff and he later told fans about his experience in a post on his blog.
He writes, "So, I'm half-way through an interview for TV when all of a sudden the lights which were lighting the room gently started to sway from side to side and the door began to rattle slightly... Now, I didn't take much notice of this until the camera man very softly and calmly said, 'We have to leave and go to the outside... there is an earthquake happening.' Just like that!!!!!!
"So, we all get evacuated into the car park and the whole place is just gently rocking back and forth... a bit like being on a boat... mad as f**k!! 6.9 on the Richter scale it was!!!! I loved it... my first earthquake."
Gallagher refused to let the earthquake change his schedule and he went ahead with his gig at the city's Teatro Metropolitan that night as planned before flying to Los Angeles ahead of his slot at the Coachella music festival in Indio, California over the weekend (14-15Apr12).
