Here at Wembley Stadium, we love Take That but we know that you love them even more. So who better to give us their opinions on the concerts than you? The first Take Thatter to give us they’re view from the front is Nuala from Bury St Edmunds.
She went to the opening night of the Progress tour in Sunderland but didn’t think it was a patch on the incredible atmosphere in Wembley. If she only had to describe it in one word it would be “incredible”. This might have something to do with the fact that she was right at the front and when the band sang Eight Letters, Gary Barlow came up to her, held her hand and sang to her! What a lucky girl!
She was amazed by the robotics used during Love Love and just can’t get over how much was going on at once! This is why she’s going back to see the show again on the 5, 8 and 9 July, so she can stand in a different spot each night and take absolutely everything in. She has already planned her place for the concert on the 5th and will be heading for the left side of the main stage so she is right in front of Robbie, she is also camping outside the stadium the night before each concert and when she leaves the show on the 8th she’s joining the queue straight away to bag her space at the front the next night.
Nuala was emphatic that everything about the night was fantastic, from the Pet Shop Boys colourful performance, to Robbie Williams’ banter getting the crowd going. She really enjoyed the Circus tour but thinks Progress has bettered it tenfold! A glowing review indeed!
She is a massive fan of Take That as a four piece and would still be going to the shows if they were touring like that again but with Robbie joining them it really is the icing on the cake for her. She loves the way the show is broken into sections and is pleased the band comes out first as a four piece because this is the way they established themselves when they first came back.
She doesn’t want to ruin it for anyone but don’t think Never Forget is the end of the show. She had tears in her eyes thinking this was the end of the show and then they returned. She thought Eight Letters was the perfect way to end the show and loves that they rounded things off with something new. She says, “The album and tour are called Progress and it shows that is exactly what they are doing.” No resting on their laurels for Take That!
