This is actually really easy for me, at least it would have been a few years ago. I would have dreamed of seeing Take That play together as a five-piece. I’ve loved them since I was 8 and the first started out and I stuck with them when it stopped being “cool”. They were the first concert I ever went to when I was 12; but Robbie had left so it was just the four of them. It was still amazing and was the first step towards becoming addicted to live music – I absolutely love it, there’s nothing better and now I go to all the local gigs I can.
I was one of the many devastated teenagers when they split up, though not one of the suicidal ones, I’m not that crazy – thank God, you’d never have had the joy of seeing them reform; but lets face it who thought that would ever happen!
When they did get back together I held my breath, Pray-ing that they were Back For Good because I knew I would Never Forget how amazing there were, Babe. Could It Be Magic again? It Only Takes a Minute though for it to all fall apart again. (Sorry – fan humor 😉 )
In truth I was worried they wouldn’t live up to their legacy; but I was wrong, they weren’t just as good, they were better. I wasn’t well enough to go to their first tour; but have been lucky enough to go to the next two. Amazing! The dream though was always to see them all together, a site I was never lucky enough to witness first hand.
Then the impossible happened and Robbie came back too, I have a few reservations, the music’s great; but I am concerned about the dynamic. I’ve got my fingers crossed that he’ll make it to the concert, because I have my golden ticket and I can’t wait to use it!
