    Anybody else watching ?

    125,000 people, and by the end I get the feeling they'll be one almighty version of Angels ringing about.

    I wasn't there myself, but I was watching it live on channel 4 and it looked absolutely fantastic! Robbie really had the crowd going and the final song from take that with a rock&roll chorus was great! All I can say is i wish i was there!

    Absolutely incredible weren't it. He still manages to play the crowd, and continues to look surprised and humbled when the crowd respond by singing the songs that have made him so famous.

    Given the opportunity to go, I would not have turned it down.

    Knebworth is actually a large estate with a big stately home owned by the Lytton family, but it is most famous nowdays for its concerts.

    Hmmm last twenty minutes were pretty good yeh, loved the version of "Want You Back For Good" at the end.

    Have to laugh when there were Take That lyrics that the crowd was singing effectively correcting Robbies memory !

    You missed a great show, it was 2 hours of total entertainment, just as he promised.

    I'm not brilliant at Maths (though better than many), as I may soon demonstrate, but if 375,000 went over three days, that is about 1/3 of one million. If there are 60 million people in the country, does this mean that 1/180 th of the population went? Becuase that is amazing, but I probably got it wrong and will soon be made to look stupid by some smartarse.

    If you think about it in that sense, as a fraction of the UKs population, then when you get them 1/180th of the entire population desending on one location over a weekend, you very quickly start to understand the traffic problems that Herts Police have encounted.
