take that - progress

Last night I went to see Take That live at Hampden Park and, despite not being a fan, it was probably one of the best gigs I've ever been to! They put on such an amazing show and I found myself singing along to songs (I'm surprised with how many I knew!) and dancing like crazy. The highlights for me were Robbie Williams playing his solo songs, especially Rock DJ, the amazing dancers throughout the entire show, the Alice in Wonderland set, the ballerina... and lots more! The Pet Shop Boys were a great support act too - they really got us warmed up!

Because I'd won the tickets from Samsung through an incentive at work, I got access to the VIP Hospitality suite beforehand where we were treated to a champagne reception, free bar and 3 course meal. The meal was okay - the menu didn't actually have a vegetarian option listed so my meal was a complete surprise when they put my plate down infront of me. We definitely took advantage of the free bar, some might say that we even drank a little bit too much which created a whole lot of drama, a few grazed knees and running for a bus barefoot in torrential rain, but I won't let that ruin the experience! We didn't spot any celebs (apart from one famous footballer who the guys were fussing over but I had no idea who he was!) but apparently the Hollyoaks cast were there!

Our seats were amazing (and under shelter thankfully! it was pouring with rain all night!) so I got a bit snap happy and took over 300 photos! I'll leave you with a few of them, including a very cringeworthy and drunken 'outfit' photo, and hopefully I'll be back to normal blogging before the weekend!

  29. Over Christmas, I made a conclusion: When I got my bonus in late January, I immediately sent a payment
    in the same amount on the lender payday uk since just how much to get
    paid is less, obtaining a used car loans can be
    easier.
