Robbie Williams
19 September 2006 - Milton Keynes Bowl
When Wembley Stadium wasn't ready on time, Robbie moved his gigs to Milton Keynes. This meant quite a drive, and I considered getting a refund. I'm glad I didn't, because even though disabled access at the venue was ropey the performance itself was fun. Robbie seemed tired, and had just announced that he would be postponing the following gigs, but he still gave a good show.

Panoramic view of Milton Keynes Bowl. The viewing platform was well located and well staffed (but that was the only good thing to say for its access!)

To use the bar, you had to buy tokens at £3 each, then exchange them at the bar for a drink. Unfortunately there wasn't room to get my wheelchair between the barriers to the token seller.

After singing "Me and My Shadow" they had a competition to see who could kick a football furthest into the crowd. Nice for the people at the back!

The stage, and screens, was huge. You can see a person in the bottom right of the photo...

I'm really not sure about the white and green outfits that the backing singers were wearing for the encore.
