Have you ever wished that you could experience a concert as a VIP? Well, with Clydesdale Bank’s Hydro Vault, now you can. With incredible unobstructed views of the stage, premium sofa seating and your very own Hydro Club butler, you could win the chance to upgrade your tickets and be well and truly spoilt.

Worried about the long queues at the Hydro? Forget about them. As a VIP, you have your own special entrance, given wrist bands and are escorted up to the Hydro Club by the concierge. A perfect night if ever there was one and I was lucky to experience this for myself last weekend while Ella Henderson and Take That were in concert. 

Opening for Take That, Ella Henderson, is one X Factor act that I loved from her very first audition. Her debut album is full of hit after hit. I knew her voice was good but I didn’t expect it to be THAT good. Showcasing songs such as Glow, Empire, Mirror Man, Yours and Ghost, I was blown away by how flawless her vocal was. She did not need any backing singers or dancers, she was sensational in her own right. I cannot wait until she returns to Glasgow so I can watch her in her own headline tour. After her opening act performance, I know it is one not to be missed. 

As good as Ella was, the crowd were here for Take That. The concert from start to finish was a Cirque du Soleil-esq spectacle. The show made full use of the huge walkway which wrapped around the arena ensuring that no matter where you were standing or seating, you had a great view. Sadly my iPhone battery died so I was unable to record any videos but the vast amount of photographs I took should make up for that!

Take That Glasgow 2nd May 2015- I Like ItJPG

As we were in the Hydro Vault, this meant that we had optimum viewing of the entire concert and having our very own butler meant that we didn’t need to miss any of the concert. We just needed to ring a bell and someone came to take our orders. Forget being squashed by the crowds or being overheated. We were in pure comfort. 

Mark, Howard and Gary entertained the crowds through a selection of Take That’s discography starting with I Like It then moving onto songs such as Greatest Day, Patience, Said It All, Could It Be Magic, Relight My Fire, Back For Good and having a rather welcomed encore featuring Shine and Never Forget when the entire arena lit up. Each song had a rather elaborate theme ranging from mime acts, Japanese samurai and geisha, shadow puppetry to day-glo under the sea. It was a colour explosion with flames, fireworks and a rather fetching bicycle thrown in for good measure. 

One thing for sure is, the recently departed Jason Orange wasn’t really missed throughout the concert. The three boys (can we still call them boys?) were full of energy, flamboyant colourful outfits and shockingly for Howard, his vocals weren’t too bad either.
