Take That, Wonderland Live 2017 - A Review

Some of you may know that I freelance for a site reviewing gigs, concerts and fabulous nights out and I've never loved live music quite as much as I do right now. I'd also like to admit to being a huge Take That fan, so much so that I've cannily brainwashed my children into liking them too so when the opportunity came to buy the last 3 tickets for their tour yesterday, Harriet and I jumped at the chance and willingly handed over £95 a ticket  from See Tickets, crossing our fingers that it would be worth it.  The best thing? I got to take Abigail to her very first concert!

I have to admit that I've not listened to Wonderland a great deal but certainly, the songs they performed from it last night were pretty fabulous, I particularly love "We Are Giants" and "Cry".

The best thing about Take That for me is the fact that when you go to one of their concerts, it's not just a concert, it's a huge production, a musical experience for every sense, the lighting alone was something quite special last night and by the time they played Greatest Day as their second song I was jumping up and down!  Abigail was completely wowed, she commented that she'd never experienced that mutual experience of 15000 people all waving their arms at the same time and I have to admit, that's one of my favourite parts, it's so immersive and you know that you are sharing an intimate moment with thousands of your new friends.

For all each and every concert with Take That is completely different you are also safe in the knowledge that you'll get performances of some of their biggest hits and last night we had it all, from Satisfaction to Pray, Back for Good, How Deep is Your Love, it really didn't matter whether you were 15 or 53, it was a great night.

It really is a skill that Take That have where they appeal to all of the age groups, I saw old ladies sitting next to teenagers and everyone enjoyed themselves just as much as the next person.  It's probable that Take That will still be touring in 10 years time and you can bet I'll be there as close as I can get in a seat (I do dance but I like my own space) and hopefully my daughters will still want to go with their old mum to see Gary Barlow and Co!

Al the videos and photographs in this post were taken with the iPhone 7plus, a wonderful thing it is too!

Take That are on tour with Wonderland until the end of June and if you are even a little bit of a fan, you really must go, I promise, even the £95 tickets are worth every single penny!!
