Photos: Take That and a grieving Gary Barlow perform at the Olympics
Ok so it is the afternoon after the night before for me in the UK..whilst Take That were performing I think I went into shock, shock that Gary was able to sing that song after his daughter died and also because it was related to his father dying as well. Shock at how much I missed them as a four-piece (sorry Robster fans! I do like them as TT5 too!) and general shock at how damn good they all looked and sounded. I loved Mark and Jason’s hair..Jason was his own show off at the side, I love to see him loving being part of Take That (he is definitely the one I think will leave again first.) It was just beautiful and thank you Kim Gavin for giving them such a prime spot (even NBC didn’t cut them!).
I think when all the emotions die down we will look back on this performance as Take That’s peak performance – billions of people around the world, trending worldwide both before, during and well after their performance and a highly polished and professional performance.
Gary, aka Captain Barlow you really do amaze me sometimes..the whole world respects you..
