Take That and having a stonking good time

Wembley 4th July.  It started with a whimper. The TT4 came on and sang songs from the in-between years, and they were good, shine especially, but they didn't set the audience on fire, although a few near the stage may have gotten singed :)

Then Robbie smashed through the screen and woke us all up. We all leapt onto our feet, arms in the air, whistled, yelled and sang our heads off.  Then the boys were back. The songs from 'Progress' were brilliant - I wanted more.  I wasn't too enthusiastic about the early stuff, they seemed awkward and ill at ease through that segment.  Why try to go back?  Come on boys, what's done is done!

The set was interesting,  I loved the dance off between Howard and Jason, with the chess pieces.  The Robot Man clearly wasn't working but that didn't matter.  Those boys don't need fancy gimmicks to entertain us, they are good enough just on their own. 

We were a long way from the stage, but right at the front of our block so had a wonderful view of everything going on. 

We had a fanstastic journey back, walked to the tube station along with 85000 others, but it was a moving crowd and it only took about 15 minutes to get on a tube. It was an impressive sight watching the huge number of people swarming towards one staircase, but it was perfectly organised.  We switched trains at Liverpool street and walked straight onto the tube to Newbury Park, our chauffeur drove up as we walked out of the station.  Home by 3am. 
I still adore Marc, he struts his stuff and sings his heart out.  Robbie can hold 85000 people in thrall all by himself.  Families had gone to be entertained by Take That, but the women had gone to see Robbie.     
We had glittery stickers, Sue chose the pink one so you can't see it too well.  We were a pair of old dears having a good time. We weren't half tired on Tuesday :)
