A new album? Take that!
One of my favourite bands in the world, Take That, are working on a new album! Yay! Beautiful World, their first album since their comeback, was fantastic, and provided for an even more fantastic tour, so hopefully this new album will be able to match the previous one. More important, we need a tour to accompany the album!
Their last show, the Beautiful World Tour 2007, was fantastic. I saw the show in Ahoy Rotterdam, unfortunately from the stands. I just didn´t want to be in line all day with those hardcore Take That fans (me being a hardcore Madonna fan, I know what it´s like in those lines). In the Netherlands, concerts are almost always general admission on the floor, so unless you stand in line for a long time, you´ll end up somewhere in the back, which is why I chose to be in the stands (where there´s an assigned seat for you, not that I sat on it, but it´s good to know it´s there).
For their next tour, I plan to travel to either the O2 Arena in London, or the Manchester Evening News Arena. In the UK usually the floors are seated, so you can just order yourself a front row ticket (with a bit of luck, and of course hoping those bastards from Ticketmaster aren't scalping their own tickets before making them available to the public). Either way, I really hope there's going to be a tour, but in the mean time, I'm happy to know there's an album coming up!
