Celebrity Jake Humphrey was full of high praise for Take That as he attended the band's Wonderland tour gig in Norwich, tweeting after the show: 'The boys still have it.'
Thousands of fans made the journey to Carrow Road on Thursday, June 15 and Friday, June 16 for the two performances - the first time Take That has played in the city.
Although security was heightened in the wake of the terrorist attacks across the country, roads were jammed in the lead-up to the shows as fans queued early to get the best seats inside the Norwich City football ground.

One of those who went on Friday was television presenter Jake Humphrey, who counts Norwich as his home town.
After tweeting his thanks to the band after the stunning spectacle - which include fireworks during the rendition of Rule the World - he was thanked by band member Howard Donald, who said: 'Thankyou sir!'
Mr Humphrey also tweeted pictures of himself at Carrow Road, with the performances going on in the background.
Among the fans in today's queues were sisters Paula Pettitt and Tracey Ellis, from Bury St Edmunds, and Tracey's daughters Amy and Lottie. They started queuing at about midday and were wearing colourful flowers in keeping with the Wonderland theme. Paula and Tracey have been to almost every Take That tour and were excited to see Wonderland for the first time.
'There's no show like a Take That show, it's like a West End show and gig mixed together,' said Ms Pettitt.
