Take That are back, the original 5 pieces including Robbie Williams, have already recorded their first album together for 15 years. Now the original take that line up of Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Jason Orange, Howard Donald and Mark Owen will go on a Take That Tour the first since their record breaking 2009 The Circus Tour, which saw them play the largest Stadiums in the UK across 20 dates, playing to over 1 million people. They sold 600,000 tickets for the original dates in 5 hours.
The Take That Tour 2011, is rumoured to be twice as big as the 2009 tour. Press reports over the weekend suggest that the tour could include 58 dates and see them play to 2,000,000. The 2009 tour saw take that play the following stadiums Stadium of Light Sunderland, Ricoh Arena COventry, Croke Park Dublin, Millennium Stadium Cardiff, Hampden Park Glasgow, Old Trafford Cricket Ground Manchester and Wembley Stadium London.

The tour, to kick off next summer, will mark the first Take That gigs featuring Robbie in over 15 years and the lads are hoping for unprecedented demand for tickets. “The band realise demand is high and are acting accordingly,” an insider explained. “It’s unclear whether they will announce all 58 dates at once.”
