Take That And Robbie Williams

Well who'd have thought it! They're getting together again to tour the UK in 2011 after 15 years since they split. 


Even though I'm getting on a bit I still love pop music particularly talented groups that write, produce and perform their own music. 
It was great to see Take That reunite in 2005 even though it was without Robbie Williams. They have had massive success. Their 2009 Circus Tour was the biggest selling concert ever in the UK. I missed that but bought the DVD and it its superb.


I would have loved to have got a ticket for the new Progress Live 2011 Tour but we're on holiday in May next year so I'll miss them.


The ticket sites crashed today when the tickets went on sale with the huge demand and people have been queueing in Sunderland for tickets at The Stadium of Light since Tuesday! They've added an extra day in Sunderland but it doesn't help. I'll just have to buy the DVD like I did with the Circus Tour 2009 and enjoy it at home. Not the same experience but it was worth every penny.


Hard to choose my favourite song but The Garden with the elephant was amazing. Just watch how it squirts water from its trunk and look at the person hanging from its tail. Take a look:
