First Direct VIP - Steps In Concert

I was casually enjoying a birthday drink back in October when I was sent an email with an opportunity of a lifetime on behalf of First Direct Bank - to go and see Steps in concert as a VIP. Being the 90's child I am, I immediately accepted the invitation: I mean WHO WOULDN'T?! 

First Direct Bank have launched a new "Arena" page on the First Direct Banking site and wanted to show First Direct customers just how much they are appreciated when they visit the arena. Some of the perks include an express entrance into the First Direct Arena, Complimentary Food and Ice Cream, discounts off food and drinks in the bar as well as regular competitions and giveaways. You can't say you get all that anywhere else, just for being a customer of First Direct Bank when you visit the arena! The arena itself is great and the seats all look towards the stage which means you can see the stage from wherever your'e sitting without having to turn 90 degrees to watch as with most arenas. 

This evening it's safe to say I had a first hand experience of just how good the First Direct arena is. I was invited as a VIP and boy did i feel like a VIP! On arrival we were greeted and lead to the bar - which by the way was not overpriced like i imagined an arena bar would be, result! We were lead up to our VIP box when it was ready and the view was amazing! Located directly in front of the stage and decked out in 90's gear. I was in heaven. 

We received complimentary drinks, both alcoholic and non alcoholic as well as more food than I could manage. There were two different types of chilli, nachos, wedges and enchiladas and I had a feast. After I had filled my belly we had a quiz on all things Steps, with a prize for the winner. We got glittered up and put on some 90's attire including scrunchies and neck chokers and settled down for the support acts. 

Vengaboys were supporting and oh my days did I enjoy myself. I remembered all the words and had such a good dance along and i sang SO SO LOUD. It brought such a smile to my face and I was completely giddy with excitement by the time they had finished and it had definitely put me in the mood for Steps!

Steps were as amazing as I remember. I had their Wembley tour of 2000 and learnt all the dance moves myself when i was younger. If this night showed me anything, it was that I still know all the dance moves and i'm not even ashamed. They played all their hits such as One for Sorrow, Tragedy and 5,6,7,8 - I sang so loud I could barely speak after the concert ended. They also have not aged one bit and still sound as great as they did back then!

I would say an all round amazing evening thanks to First Direct and i could not love this arena more. If you want to check out the arena page on the First Direct website you can click here to have a nosy! What other bank can say they offer this sort of experience to their customers! 

I had such an amazing time, taking a few STEPS down memory lane ;)
