When someone tells you about a British Boy Band concert happening in Bangkok, Thailand, while you happen to be there…you go. Take That’s 20 year reunion concert made a stop in Bangkok, with lots of eagerly awaiting Thai fans. I joined #SinghaExperience for a night on the town with hits, lights, and lots of selfie opportunities. I happen to be a fan of Asian beers, so an added bonus to see Singha poured at the concert.

The way to see into a culture is to have experiences – from the excitement in the general admissions area, to the diverse crowd that attended the event, I was floored to see how engaged and involved the audience was. I’ve always had a love for the 90’s, and Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald put on a show that night. March 3rd, 2016 was a night to remember at the IMPACT Centre, Bangkok. Expats, locals, tourists alike – Take That belted it out to a floor full of fans, complete with an A/V show to impress anyone.

Keys to concert success:

  1. Pack Light (I only carried a money belt and a bottle of water for the car ride, alongside my cell phone of course) Don’t forget to read the rules too – in this case, no official / dslr / large cameras were allowed.
  2. Bring a portable charger that you and your friends can share (if possible). My phone tendencies get overactive, and it’s important to stay juiced!
  3. Get into it – standing, dancing, swaying, whatever you feel! Don’t spend the whole time on your phone, you’ll miss what’s right in front of you.
  4. Eat before, you’ll need the energy. If it happens to be a big bowl of spaghetti…power to you.
  5. Make Frenz – got to tag along with Kanika of A Dose of Life and Erick of Minority Nomad.
  6. Figure out your ride situation – are you carpooling? VIP life for us = getting picked up in a van and shuttled over to the IMPACT Muang Thong Thani Arena made the commute effortless.


Thanks to Singha VIP Experience for bringing me to the Take That concert in Bangkok – a night to remember, with a long playlist to go through ahead.
