Take The Crown Tour

About 7 weeks ago when I was randomly on Ticketmaster to see who was touring, I came across a Robbie Williams special event '3 nights only comeback tour at the O2, apply now for your chance to get some tickets' so I applied with mine, mum's and dad's email addresses to hopefully get through for when the tickets went on sale on Tuesday 9th October. On the Monday, dad came downstairs and said they had emailed him and he had got through for the chance to buy some tickets! YAY!

Then when I was at college on the Tuesday, I got a text during my Drama lesson from dad saying 'Robbie 22nd Nov 4 tickets' I was so happy haha! Mum and dad have seen Robbie twice before so were more excited than me! Then when mum was on the phone to my Auntie Al, she said she had never been to a concert or to London, so could she come. And mum said yes :D! Your probably thinking how have you never been to London? But all of mum's side of the family live in Cornwall so it's not a regular thing to go to London haha! And finally, the 22nd November came and on Thursday we went to see Robbie...

Me, Mum and Al left the house at 1:30pm as I had to go to the hospital, to get my monthly flush of my port, before heading up to London. 


Then after that we made our way up to Dad's office in London. We arrived in London at about 3:30pm so we parked the car and went and had a Mcdonalds while we waited for Dad to finish work. 20 chicken Mcnugget meal went down nicely I must say :D, I hadn't eaten anything all morning though so don't go thinking I'm a right pig haha!

After dad finished work at 4:30, we set off in the car towards the River Thames as we were getting a boat to the O2, posh ayy! Dad drove around for a while so Auntie Al could see the sites, then we parked the car and walked around for a bit.


Then we got the Thames Clippers boat at 6pm.

We got to the O2 just before 7pm where we had to que up to get in. The concert was a ticketless event so you just had to que with the card you payed on. So the queing was so slow and we were there atleast half an hour before we actually got in!! When we got in, we got given free Robbie lanyards and then went and found our seats. Our seats were so high up and it was so steep! But the stage was in the middle or as Robbie would say 'In the round' so we could still see. There were also screens so we could see Robbie close up.  Robbie wasn't due to come on stage until 9 so me and Dad went and found the O2 photobooth to get our photo done to go on their facebook page. We are regulars of the O2 so know where this is haha!



After the long wait, Robbie finally came on around 9:15 and had the crowd in his hands straight away with 'Let Me Entertain You'. But ofcourse my favourite one was 'She's The One', my fav Robbie song! And when he sung 'Angels' he said to think of your angel. So I thought of Sian :)! It was such an amazing night and I can't wait until he next tours! The concert was on TV on Sky1 last night, so me and mum watched it. And mum acted as if she was back at the concert, waving her hands and singing really loudly haha!

Robbie has a special announcement with Samsung tomorrow at 3pm and mum heard on the radio it is that he will be doing an 'All summer stadium tour, bigger than Knebworth' so if it is, I will definately be applying for tickets! If you ever get the chance to go, do so!

Here are some photos although, they are not the best quality as my camera wouldn't focus as we were to far back :(
