TAKE THAT ROCK CROKE PARK

IT’S BEEN OVER A WEEK SICE I SAW TAKE THAT IN CROKE PARK IN DUBLIN, REUNITED AS A FIVE PIECE AGAIN AND I HAVEN’T RECOVERED YET. PROGRESS STILL BLASTS AWAY IN THE CAR AND EVERY SONG HAS BEEN HEIGHTENED BY THE STUNNING MEMORIES OF THEM LIVE IN CONCERT. I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO BE GOOD BUT NEVER FOR A SECOND DID I THINK THEY WOULD BE TOTALLY MIND BLOWING.

THE PET SHOP BOYS OPENED AS THE SUPPORTING ACT, A FAVE GROUP OF MINE I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER SEE BUT THEY WERE SIMPLY AMAZING. THEN THE FOUR GUYS TOOK THE STAGE AND THE STADIUM ERUPTED. THEY LAUNCHED INTO SHINE AND PATIENCE AND SONGS THEAT HERALDED THEIR COMEBACK. SUDDENLY ALL FIVE ARE ON A BIG SCREEN AND THE DOORS PART TO REVEAL ROBBIE WHO LAUNCHED INTO LET ME ENTERTAIN YOU AND ASOME OF HIS SOLO STUFF BEFORE ALL FIVE CAME TOGETHER AND TAKE THAT REALLY WERE BACK FOR GOOD. WE HAD AN ALICE IN WONDERLAND THEME WITH MARK RIDING A GIANT CATERPILLAR, A MARTIAL ARTS SHOW FROM HOWARD AND JASON AND A QUIETR MOMENT WHEN THEY SIMPLY SAT ROUND A PIANO AND SAT A FEW SONGS AND MADE A JOKE ABOUT THEIR SPLIT AND ROBBIE’S RETURN.

THEY FINISHED WITH A GIANT ROBOT GLIDING DOWN THE CATWALK WITH THEM SINGING NEVER FORGET BEFORE FIRE ERUPTED EVERYWHERE IN A SPECTACULAR FINALE. THE TICKETS MAY HAVE BEEN 85 QUID BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY AND EASILY A SHOW YOU COULD GO TO AGAIN AS THERE WAS SO MUCH HAPPENING TO TAKE IN. GYMNASTS FORMED THE WORD PROGRESS ON A GIANT WALL ON ROPES WHILE THE GROUP DESCENDED ON LIFTS WHILE ROBBIE SWANDIVED.

TOTALLY SPECTACULAR, TOTALLY COOL AND A REAL SENSE OF THE PAST IS THE PAST AND A HAPPY FUTURE FOR OLD FRIENDS REUNITED. WELCOME BACK GUYS AND HURRY BACK SOON.
