The world’s best known boy band, Take That, have revealed details of their 2011 full UK tour including a date at the Cardiff Millennium Stadium in Wales.
This will be the first time the band have toured as a five piece, with estranged singer
Robbie Williams, in 16 years.
Full dates for the
Progress Live stadium tour 2011, were announced at a press conference in London by Gary, Howard, Jason, Mark and Robbie and were particularly welcomed by Welsh Take That fans!
“The Millennium Stadium has become a must play venue for all the big acts and I’m thrilled that Take That have announced that they will be returning next summer, said
WRU Group Chief Executive Roger Lewis.
“Over 120,000 Take That fans will remember the fantastic
Circus Live Tour at the venue last summer, and many will remember the band’s first Millennium Stadium show in 2006, and today’s announcement promises to be another spectacular occasion. The Millennium Stadium brought Robbie Williams to Cardiff in 2001 for two sell-out dates, however to welcome a five-piece Take That is a landmark occasion for all the fans and I’m sure that thousands of people out there will be looking to get their hands on tickets.”
Progress Live 2011 will be a feast for the imagination, charting the evolution and progress of Take That and Robbie Williams through their extraordinary 20-year history. The spectacular live shows will celebrate Take That’s biggest hits from the last two decades and, will also see Robbie take to the stage to perform songs from his incredible chart-topping solo career.
Between them, Take That and Robbie Williams have sold over 80 million albums, had 13
number one albums, 17 number one singles, played to over 14.5 million people live, won 19 BRIT Awards, eight MTV awards and five Ivor Novello awards; and the list goes on.
