For the last few months I have been so excited about going to see Take That on tour that when the day finally came I didn’t know what to do with myself. I woke up, after not a lot of sleep, giddy to say the least. There was 8 of us going, all of us girls so we decided to meet up at Xscape at Castleford for a spot of lunch & a catch up first.
As you can imagine we were all a little loud & so excited about seeing them again. Most of the group had been to see them on the Circus tour so knew exactly (well nearly) what to expect! A few bottles of wine were consumed whilst we waited for our meal (and for our friend to come from Scarborough via Huddersfield ;D) and then we set off in 2 cars.
On went the Take That CD’s & up went the volume…4 girls singing, ok, ok, screeching, in a small car all the way to Manchester is something to experience It was so much fun.
We got to Manchester, found a ‘free’ parking space, and wandered up to the City of Manchester Stadium. When we got there we were faced with this…A totally amazing sight…
Everything about the night was fantastic…The best bit for me, personally, has got to be Robbie Williams opening his solo section with ‘Let Me Entertain You’. I think I actually nearly had a heart attack as don’t think I’ve been so excited about anything in my life (believe me, I know this is a little sad).
Other highlights include the finale of ‘Never Forget’ and ‘Relight My Fire’, which ended up with this fella appearing from behind the stage…
I cannot emphasise enough what a fantastic show these boys put on…I loved the format of the 4 boys, then Robbie solo, then the 5 boys back together, it really, really worked, and by far one of the best shows I’ve even been to. I just can’t quite say it’s the best as, even with the Robbie Williams part, the Circus Tour was still marginally better for me.
