Hiya

Just thought i would let you all no because im getting rather excited now that i am going to see TAKE THAT on tuesday, i cant wait, only prob i have is that i have an unreserved tickets which means i can sit and stand so im hoping by the time i get there that there will be some seats left or else im guna be in some pain standing for that long, i'll have to make sure ive took plenty of painkillers before i go to cover me, im hoping robbie sees me with my crutch and feels sorry for me hahaha (not likely)

    Sitting here with my fire service head on, Joann1, I think, by law they should have a section for the disabled (the phrase disabled section doesn't sound very good, does it? Like a section that's a bit poorly?? Anyway...)

    If for no other reason, if there was a fire in the stadium, how would you safely get out? In fact, if they say they can't find you an appropriate place, I'd make a complaint and ask them how you would get out safely and quickly because of your limited mobility??

    Ooooh, I might have something there, don't you think? I was due a good idea!

    And I am SOOOO jealous you're off to see Take That - I always had a thing for Robbie, he's so gorgeous. Take me with you!

    That's because they're worth so much money, Del!

    They can always give them to me!

    I think you'd do well to prepare Joann, but I do think you'd regret it if you didn't go at all?

    Any Tony - boy bands? You mean like The Beatles? Queen? Status Quo??? Just because Take That were pretty and are now just downright ruggedly handsome (well, Robbie and Gary are anyway)

    :shock: You can't possibly compare any of them to Queen :shock:
    Besides, you telling me Freddie wasn't a pretty boy :eek: Not even with those teeth :lol::lol:
    Beatles, not that great, Quo... Bunch of dithering old farts in denim :roll: :lol:
    Never liked TT but I am man enough to say that they did a couple of very good tracks just before they were stupid enough to let the p1ll0ck Nobbie back in...
    Never needed him in the first place..

    Joann LOL - I LOOOOOOVE Robbie almost as much as Robert De Niro :D

    And Tony, please pay attention - I didn't say Queen etc were pretty, I was comparing them to TT in an un-pretty way; sort of saying, TT are considered a Boy Band because they are good looking but Queen and co aren't pretty so they are thought of as serious musicians.

    Right, we all done with musical theory? EE is on in a bit :P

    O M G Nx they were fantastic, Robbie was out of this world, i'll download you a pic when i put them on computer, i got a seat no problem but everyone stood for take that so had to do it myself, just made sure i took plenty of painkillers there and when i came home, struggled slightly the next day but it was well worth it
