Robbie Williams celebrates 25 years of Take That
30 Jul 2015
2015 marks 25 years since Take That formed and Robbie Williams has been celebrating with a flashback image.
The now solo star posted a picture of the group from the 90s with the caption: “Hard to believe it’s been 25 years @takethat” on his official Twitter account. The picture shows very young looking Take That in matching, unbuttoned flowery shirts and jeans.
Take That formed in 1990 after Nigel Martin-Smith, based in Manchester, sought to equal the success of America’s New Kids On The Block.
The band’s first ever performance took place on The Hitman and Her show, and since then, the group have gone on to release seven top-charting albums and have become one of the biggest boy bands of all time.
Take That currently feature a line-up of Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen. The group originally split in 1996 after Robbie Williams left the band. They reformed in 2005 without Robbie Williams, but he later re-joined the group to work with them on their sixth album, Progress.
Jason Orange departed Take That in 2014. The three-piece went on to release III, and they followed the album with a hugely successful tour of the UK.
Take That will be on the stage in September. The band will perform at Wear The Rose Live at London’s The O2 on 9 September. The concert is the official Rugby World Cup send-off show for the England rugby team. Tickets are now on sale here for the gig.
