Mark Owen, Gary Barlow and Howard Donald are heading to our fine city for the first time and bringing their Wonderland Live tour to Carrow Road on June 15 and 16.

About 60,000 people are expected to watch the band over the two nights, and fans have been taking to Twitter to voice their excitement as the countdown to the shows continues. Among them is @sarahroseex who tweeted 'Our Take That tickets for Norwich have come, I am SO excited.'

@sue_is_cool has tweeted: 'Not long till see the boys in Norwich #wonderlandlive #cantwait #TakeThat.'

And while many people are looking forward to seeing Take That closer to home for the first time, there are also people travelling from far and wide to the concerts.
