An amazing weekend!

Oh yes! Yesterday we were here,Wembley Stadium

to see TAKE THAT! It was AMAZING!
It wasn't just a concert, it was a spectacular show.There were all sorts of circus acts going on during the show, including a huge mechanical elephant with the boys on top!

They put their on own clown makeup on stage

They sang all their songs, old and new and were brilliant live!It gave us goosebumps as 80,000 people sang along with them!

It was a bit of a nightmare trying to exit the stadium carpark at the end.It took us an hour and a half to get out, we didn't move at all for the first hour!

We eventually arrived home at 1.30 am and were desperate for a cup of tea.

Must tell you,we checked on the website that you are allowed to take in your own food and drink(and you are) so we took a 2l bottle of lemonade and lots of water as it was hot.What they don't tell you on the website is that they take the bottle tops from you. YES people,they take your bottle tops from you, in case you use them as MISSILES! How mad is that.So you have to walk around with full bottles of drinks and no lids! Now my friend Karen, who was with us managed to get a flask through, she was taken to the supervisor, who was so flabbergasted that she had taken a flask of tea to a Take that concert, he let her through with it!. now I'm no missile expert, but my guess is, and this is just my opinion, you could do much more heavy damage if you threw a flask of tea than a plastic bottle top, but hey what do I know!

Back tomorrow with car boot loot and a thankyou!

Utterly brilliant - lucky you! A friend of mine went on Sunday.

You'll lucky that let you keep the bottles we always use to have ours taken off us - bottle tops though, that's just daft!

I laughed out loud at the Flask of tea!! Ha Ha Ha!!!! Now thats when you know you are getting old!! No offence meant - i'm probably way older than you - and Lissy Lou's comment about going to the loo!!! ha ha ha!! Glad you had a good time - I love concerts that make you feel 15 again. Last year, I went to see ALL of the Osmonds in concert. I laughed, and cried, and sang and experienced all of my emotions in that night. I still love Donny. xx

*Giggle* I agree surely a good clout with a flask of tea would hurt more than a flicked plastic bottle top!!!
Glad you had a fab time!

Sounds like you had a great time. Had to laugh at the bottle top thing. Who makes up these rules?

I think the world has gone bonkers when I hear about silly petty rules like confiscating bottle tops...!!!
I am insanely jealous to hear you went to the Take That concert... I would so love to have gone.. but am most grateful that you took bird's eye pics of the event..
Glad you had a wonderful time.. even if you were without a bottle top!!!
