Take That!

I've always loved a boy band - ever since The Osmonds, but I'd never been a huge fan of Take That.  I think Robbie Williams put me off them at the start.  But my blog lurker pal Nic is a huge fan (she still dreams of running off with Mr Barlow), so when she asked me if I fancied going to see them on their latest tour I said yes.

So on Monday night, we battled through the driving rain and wind to Sheffield Arena.  All I can say is WOW!! What a show!!  It was spectacular. One of my friends likened it to the opening of the Olympic games in 2012!

 It was so colourful and action packed.  The music was fabulous and we danced all night.

 They had huge shodow puppets which I loved.

 I hadn't realised they were all such showmen.
 We are lucky in Sheffield that we have so much live music happening all of the time.  Venues range from the very small to very large.  Arena's are not my favourite place to hear live music, but in this instance, they filled up the space and it was perfect.

I'm now a big fan and I will  go and see them live again.

I am also not a Robbie Williams fan but this sounds like it was amazing. I have seen very few live shows living in Southern Africa most of my life but I did see Elton John and Queen with Freddie in Bophuthatswana. The latter was the most amazing thing i have ever seen. Have a good weekend t'other Diane

It all looks very spectacular.
Anything which keeps you dancing all night cant be bad.
