Screaming fans, wicked dance routines, colourful glow sticks; surely I'm describing a Take That concert? Almost!
On Friday 19th March, the King's Theatre opened their stage to Back for Good, a Take That tribute band. Performing all the classics, old and new - Patience, Relight My Fire, Greatest Day, Back for Good plus many more, the northern foursome put on a show filled to the brim with energy.
Each member could mimic their idol down to a tee, including accents, singing styles, dance moves, looks, mannerisms, down to the last hairstyle - every aspect of their performance showed dedication to their job.
The outfit changes were impressive, with members wearing glittered tuxedos and clown outfits, and backing dancers sporting brightly coloured dresses and leotards.
It took a couple of songs for the audience to warm up, but soon almost everyone was out of their seats and enjoying a jig-along. An excitable, mainly female audience, screams and giggles of laughter could be heard from every nook and cranny of the theatre hall.
Even after the firework finale, hysterical fans bustled around Reception and queued up as the band signed memorabilia and posed for photographs.
Definitely one for a girly night out, Back for Good can be found playing all over the UK for the rest of their tour.
