Last night at Steps

Last night at Steps

Flashback December 2001: H and Claire handed the dreaded (resignation) letters to the others just before the final show at The M.E.N. We know the rest thanks to the Sky Documentary; a return here may be bittersweet, but 15000 grown-ups (anyone under 23 probably can’t remember them) didn’t care.

The crowd is in a state of frenzy long before the fab five arrive. The usually vile ‘ooh oohs’ are forgiven because for the next two hours we are allowed to forget how old we are. The stage looks more impressive than we expected and the live singing is commendable. Hit after hit is churned out along with the covers thrown in and a solo section which Claire steals doing Celine dressed as a loo roll holder. From the opening Here and Now, to the finale of Tragedy, every seat remains bum less and only during When I Said Goodbye does everyone dash to the bar/toilet.

They remind us of all the ‘steps’ as if we could forget, and we realise why we loved them: they always knew their limitations but were in on the gag. Nostalgia can be a fantastic thing sometimes. A ‘Take That’ might be on the cards...
The second Manchester date is on 26th April at the Manchester Arena once more.
