Take That: Wembley's finest?

Take That's Circus tour is one of 25 events up for the award of 'Wembley's Greatest Event'

Gary, Howard, Mark and Jason played their biggest hits to a crowd of more than 75,000 for four nights in 2009 - and it's widely regarded as one the most spectacular live tours ever seen in the UK.

Of course the boys will be back later this summer, with Robbie, for an 8 night residency with their Progress tour.

Take That are up against numerous sporting events including the 1966 World Cup final but other music events to make the short list include:

1985: Live Aid
The day music changed the world? A 16 hour long concert organised by Bob Geldof to raise money for victims on famine in Ethiopia. 72,000 people came to Wembley Stadium to see the biggest names in music including Queen, Paul McCartney, George Michael, Elton John and many, many more.

1986:  Queen
Queen's A Kind of Magic tour spent two nights at Wembley in 1986. The image of Freddie Mercury dressed in cape and crown as Brian May played God Save The Queen remains one of the most iconic images in music history.

1988: Michael Jackson

Michael filled Wembley Stadium for a record seven nights and means he played to 504,000 spectators. The 'Bad Tour' at Wembley included some of his greatest ever hits, 'Thriller', 'Rock with you', 'Smooth criminal', 'Beat it' and 'Billie Jean'.

2007: Live Earth 
The brainchild of former American Vice President Al Gore to help combat the global climate crisis. Genesis, The Black Eyed Peas, Duran Duran, James Blunt, The Pussycat Dolls and Madonna were all involved.
