Take That announce Greatest Hits tour to come to Birmingham next year

Sarah Mason 1st Oct, 2018

TAKE THAT will be stopping off in Birmingham as part of their Greatest Hits tour next year.

The tour is to celebrate the group’s 30 year anniversary and perform some of fans favourite songs at Arena Birmingham from May 12 to 14 and May 16 to 18.

They will be joined on tour by special guest Rick Astley.

Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen are Take That in 2018 and continue the legacy of one of the most successful bands in British chart history.

Formed as a five piece in 1989, they enjoyed immediate success with their first two albums charting at No.2 and No.1 respectively. Third album Nobody Else confirmed their global domination, selling over six million copies and topping the charts in 11 countries.

The departure of band member Robbie Williams prompted a break up in 1996 and nine years in the wilderness before the other four members reunited for 2005’s The Ultimate Tour.

This sparked one of the greatest comebacks in British music history with Take That going on to release three No.1 albums in just four years.

Robbie’s return for 2011’s ‘Progress’ saw them break the record for the fastest selling album of the 21st century and fastest selling tour of all time in the UK. Williams’ second departure, along with that of Jason Orange left the remaining three members to release III and 2017’s Wonderland, which were certified platinum and gold respectively.

Tickets cost from £61.75 (includes admin fees and £1.20 facility fee) + £2.55 fulfilment fee per order.
