Take That Arena Tour Tickets On Sale Today!
Tickets for Take That’s 2015 UK tour go on sale at 9am today (Thursday the 13th of November), with extra dates having already been added following strong pre-sales.
Fans of the seminal boy band have been subject to a series of surprises over the past few months – some good, some not so good. Firstly, back in September Jason Orange left the group; citing his reason as not wanting to commit to recording a new album or supporting it with a tour. After this slight setback, fans were told in early-October that Take That would continue as a trio, confirming their seventh album – fittingly titled III – is due for release on Monday the 1st of December, backed by the single ‘These Days’.
The team behind the new album includes ELO frontman Jeff Lynne and Stuart Price. Price was involved the group’s last album, which featured both Jason Orange and Robbie Williams and sold over 250,000 copies in one day.
In support of the new album, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald are set to perform 30 shows as a three piece, starting with Glasgow’s Hydro on Monday the 27th of April 2015 and closing the summer tour in London at the O2 Arena on Friday the 12th
of June. The tour will also visit Belfast, Birmingham, Dublin, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield.
“We've always been very proud of our live shows and are very excited to be touring again next year. Playing live is something we love the most about what we do and we're looking forward to putting on the most amazing show we can,” Take That said in a statement. “It will have been four years since our last tour, so we're really keen to get back out on the road to play some of our biggest songs from the last 20 years, alongside our new ones."
Take That – which formed in 1990 and enjoyed a string of hits before splitting in 1996 – reformed as a quartet for a hugely successful comeback in 2005. Williams did eventually re-join the band in 2010 for the Progress album and a subsequent record-breaking stadium tour, but left again to pursue his solo career.
While they may be two men down, the Take That trio would do well to remember that old saying: Good things come in threes…
