Sheffield Arena – Monday 29th May 2017. Reviewed by Mary Swithenbank Walton
This was my first live Take That gig and they didn’t disappoint.
The central stage gave an all round view of the visual displays of the stunning special effects and the boys. Wherever you are sitting you get a good view. The boys made full use of the whole area of the stage.
It really was a great show, very theatrical as always. There was so much to see and I didn’t know where to look. The show was full of surprises throughout. The carousel effect was stunning and magical and brought a tear to my eyes.
Although there is an advantage standing around the stage area as fans get to see Gary, Howard and Mark close up and a good view of their bottoms, however, to fully appreciate the show and effects it is better to be higher up and view from a distance.
There was a mix of songs old and new, the usual favourites. Their performance was faultless. I’m not too keen of Gary as a blonde though!
I wouldn’t want to spoil the surprises by saying too much but if you are going to a gig you are in for a treat. I didn’t want it to end and can’t wait to see them again. ENJOY!!
