Take That

Wembley Stadium

Had all the fun and theatre we come to expect from TT; ticker tape, elevating platforms, glowing stages, ghost-like dancers wielding flaming torches, dancing trees, roller-skating bees, and even a giant caterpillar. 

However, the collective gasp of excitement when Robbie finally appeared, alone was amazing. He is Mr Showmanship and with unpredictability, and interspersed potty mouth, delivered Let Me Entertain You and Angels so effortlessly he could have been singing in the park.

TT finally upstaged the entire theatrics when all five of them performed their classic anthems; Pray, Relight My Fire, and Back For Good, and all whilst dancing, smiling and hugging like the good ole days. 

Finally when they sang Never Forget in front of a massive illuminated robot, so tall it towered above the stadium, it was a once in a lifetime concert and experience; just brilliant!
