All the gigs of my life: Gig 105 – Take That, Monday, May 8, 2006, Wembley Arena

The outrageously triumphant return of Take That, one decade after the split that devastated a generation. It was May 2006, and something wholly unexpected and unprecedented was happening in the lives of millions of 90s pop girls: our boys were back!
