Page 169/365 : Robbie Fucking Williams

Half day at work today before we headed over to Manchester for the Robbie Williams concert at the Etihad Stadium.

The staging was great, with a huge Robbie-head overlooking the crowd.

And this was how he entered :

The whole show was brilliant from start to finish. It was very self-indulgent, which I know a lot of people don’t like him for, but there was no denying that he is a show-man and loves to put on a spectacle.

Where else would you see :

• A giant Robbie-Head releasing a load of balloons.
• A giant Robbie-Head puking water over the crowd.
• A giant Robbie-Head carrying Real-Robbie to the stage in its mouth.
• A Robbie-Puppet whilst in bed with a fan.
• A Robbie-Head that turns into a monkey.
• A Stoke Sit-Down (it’s the opposite of a Mexican Wave where you all start stood up then sit down…!
• Four spinning Glitter-Ball-Robbie-Heads

It was fun and fancy and everyone was enjoying the party….including the numerous amount of shitfaced people falling over, being escorted out of the show, collapsing etc…and that was just the women!

Olly Murs was also cracking as the support and a lot has to be said for his showmanship too. He was clearly having the time of his life, especially when joining Robbie on stage for “Kids”. He ain’t done bad has he after being part of Deal Or No Deal, a show I was on myself back in the day…in fact, I was in before Olly (I was show #56), so technically, I paved the way for him…so Olly, if you wanna, ya know, sort me out some freebie tickets at some point…

The Encore was a spot on mix of “Feel”, “She’s The One” and of course it was all wrapped up with “Angels”.

Brilliant

In other news today, it seems like Leeds United may be about to be sold. Rumours are flying around GFH are looking to sell a majority stake to someone in the very near future. If this brings much needed funds into the club then it’s spot on. My thoughts are that this new buyer probably wanted us all along but didn’t want to deal with Ken Bates, so GFH come along, sort everything out, kick Bates out, then the new guy comes along and buys us. More news as we hear it…

…and tomorrow (Wednesday) is fixture day! Woohoo!

WWE Raw was absolutely amazing last night too (watched it before heading to the concert). Gotta say that the WWE has surprised me in the last 48 hours! Good times
