YABU to go to a Take That concert.

Have some self respect woman!

We were in the stands and everyone stood as soon as they came on. Can't understand why anyone would want to sit their way through a concert so dance away!

Dancing to Take That. Sigh.....

I've not been to Take That but I was at Enrique the other week and my friend and I were drinking vodka and dancing all night

OOh I was staying in the same hotel as them on Saturday night... got excited despite having no interest in Take That at all.

All my mates seem to be going, it's all the school mums are taking about at the mo

I saw them a couple of weeks ago. We were up in the stands and everyone was on their feet dancing. Really shouldn't have paid the extra to have seats, I only sat in mine for about 5 minutes.

Enjoy! I'm not even a TT fan but the show was amazing!

I know that! I was just being cheeky! grin

Have fun! (although I still think I'm right about the self respect wink)

I think i'm the only one who doesn't feel like that at my school though. TT are the hot topic in the playground. Some of the mums are seeing them twice!

They must be loaded!

mamas12 Mon 04-Jul-11 17:23:20

We all stood up and down depended on the song, no probs!

I never understand why people bother buying seated tickets when they don't bother. I go to concerts with a friend who has back and leg issues and can't stand for very long. Selfish twits who stand in front of us ruin gigs for her.

Saw them in Birmingham last Monday and they were fantastic. Nobody sat down except at the beginning of Progress when the dancers were doing their bit. Great show.

LittleMiss a lot of venues have no or very limited standing areas and the tickets for those are usually like golddust as they are closest to the stage so most people have no choice. Don't most venues have seating available for people with disabilities, etc (not sure if your friend would fall into this category as you don't say what the proble is) these days?

We stood up when we went to see them on Thursday - we were in the unreserved seating though.

Littlemiss with respect, what do you expect? It's a concert, people will get up and dance. Agree with eurochick.

Saw them last night - absolutely fab - we were stood on pitch - tres close to the action! - People were standing in the seats - wouldn't fancy standing on upper tier - looked very high

cantpooinpeace Tue 05-Jul-11 20:28:39

I was there on Sat too, block P smile stood the whole time.

Went yesterday, fab show, the upper tiers are high though but the way the seating is arranged you should be fine. There was a mixture of sitting and standing during the show tbh.

Few tips, the way you go in should be the way you should go out, we were directed the wrong way and completely lost our bearings at the end of the concert. Following the crowds is not the answer, we were trying to get to Wembley Park tube and were directed to Wembley Stadium BR station. In your rush to get back you just follow others...

Didnt like the look of the standing area tbh. How on earth did the people at the front use the ladies or get back to their 'space'. It was also pouring down, if you are seated the roof covers you. Food not half as bad as I was expecting. The Arena is rubbish, the stadium at least tries regarding catering but dont expect too much. If you take your own water they will take the cap off and give you a plastic cup (why???)

Ladies were fine and there were no real queues.
