Brilliant!!!! They really are amazing pics. :eek:

and it's okay about the Jonny pic, haha, I remember the times I tried to take a good Will pic for you and failed miserably. :lol:

Did Chris say any particularly funny things this evening?

he was changing lyrics all over the joint. It's a bit of a blur....lol

He said something about being away from Tunnocks Caramel Wafers compared to this song - the hardest part lol

Have to say the oddest (and also the funniest) part of the night was the couple sat to my right who left after 6 songs. They were all tarted up. You could tell they hadn't been to a rock concert before lets put it that way. She had the fur coat and all the bling on her fingers and probably elsewhere too (I never asked lol) and was so pissed off cos folk were standing in front of her. They buggered off never to be seen again lol! Was cool cos we could move about a bit more.

Who leaves a gig after 25 mins anyway?? Pair of fuds!

Was it a leopard print fur coat? because I saw a woman like that at Birmingham tottering around on some heels, looking stupid. Perhaps it's one of the boy's relatives......LOL, I hope not.

Were you on the floor or in the stands? Think I would have did what you did and went down the front as well if nobody was stopping me but not so easy when you're in the tiers lol. Have to say everybody was up dancing where I was too. Think I sat for about a minute of a song but that was just to sort out the settings on my camera.
Just uploading my pics but nowhere near as good as yours. Not too shabby seeing as I was at the back mind you lol. Get the whole stage in as well so it shows a different perspective.

Nah it was a black number. To be honest it looked like he's got the tickets as a business perk. She was telling him to tell the others to sit down (all 10000 of us lol) and he just stood up and then did nothing lol.

I'm horrible at remembering setlists but it seemed the same as Birmingham except Speed Of Sound was played on the main stage and not acoustically

Thats the one that I'm thinking 'Did they play this?' cos I'mnot 100% sure at the moment. I'm sure there'll be someone to put us both out our misery soon lol

Wow, that's so cool that you were able to get this close! All the shows I went to had security guards that kept you strictly in your place.

Thanks for posting! :D

What a fantastic night!!

The guys totally rocked. The crowd was completely up for it. The atmosphere was unbelieveable. The highlights for me were Yellow.... the whole place playing punch the massive yellow balloons back at Chris. The B stage set perform right in front of us. Lovers in Japan with thousands of luminous butterflies. The Scientist when Chris changed the words ...'Come up to Glasgow, dying to see you. Don't know how fucking awesome you are' ...superb. Not mentioned was that he sang the first verse and chorus of Take That's Back for Good. But perhaps the best thing was the crowd constantly singing the chorus from Vida La Viva even on the way to the train station....how cool is that!


Will try and upload photos and vids later.


And to all the Buckland Girls, Jonny ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
