I have to admit that I do not count myself as a Take That fan. I do like the occasional song, but I do not get the phenomenal support this band have maintained over the years, and a support that is still very evident today.
Back for Good is a tribute show to the fabulous four, yes Robbie is still missing from the tribute boy band, but the music from all eras of Take That are faithfully covered by Daniel Paul Maines as Gary, Matthew Hall as Mark, Joe Currey as Jason and Daniel John Claxton as Howard.
The dance routines are well staged and with the four sexy female backing dancers add colour and movement to enhance the more than competent vocal performances. The show is well directed, nicely lit and the sound crystal clear. There are also a couple of brief appearances from the local ‘Limelight’ choir to support on backing vocals too.
There are a whole host of Take That classic numbers including ‘It Only Takes a Minute’, ‘Babe’, ‘Patience’, ‘A Million Love Songs’, ‘Never Forget’, ‘Everything Changes’, ‘Pray’, ‘Relight My Fire’ are only a few of the highlights for the predominately female audience at the Alhambra.
It is almost impossible to get tickets to see the real Take That’ given the melt down that occurred when their latest tickets went on sale recently, so if you were unable to obtain any, or if you were lucky enough to get some and just want a taster of the next summers extravaganza, why not take the chance to see this tribute act.
The show is always touring it seems and you can check out their future dates on line on their website www.backforgoodshow.com For the latest line up of forthcoming shows at The Alhambra Theatre their website is www.alhambradunfermline.com
