About Take That
Take That rose to fame in the early 90’s with their debut album Take That & Party. The then five-piece consisted Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald, Jason Orange and Robbie Williams.
Albums Everything Changes and Nobody Else followed before Robbie Williams announced his departure from the band in 1995. Just a few months later, Take That announced that they had officially disbanded despite being the most popular boy band of the nineties.
Take That enjoyed phenomenal success in the nineties and in their wake kick-started the boy band craze while also redefining the entire boy band genre. What made Take That special was the band’s knack to write great, catchy songs. Their singles - such as the Gary Barlow penned Back For Good, Never Forget or Pray- are up there with the big rock and pop classics.
Take That – Back For Good
It took Take That ten years to regroup and in 2005 Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Jason Orange returned rejuvenated to their millions of fans around the globe as a grown-up four-piece without Robbie Williams.
The band’s return was launched with Never Forget – The Ultimate Collection, a retrospective best-of collection before the release of Beautiful World the following year; Take That’s first studio album in 11 years.
Beautiful World and the accompanying The Ultimate Tour were outstanding successes and convinced Take That to continue. They did so with the even bigger The Circus album. The record was followed by a sold-out tour in 2009.
Robbie Williams’ return to Take That
Ever since the reformation of Take That fans and media speculated about the chances of Robbie Williams reuniting with his old band mates. The former Take That star had achieved remarkable success as a solo star after departing from the band in 1995.
Fans received the ultimate treat in 2010 when Take That released their first album in 15 years with Robbie Williams. Their album, Progress, was the biggest-selling album of 2010.
Demand was high to see the now fully reformed group and this was met with the Progress Live tour. A monumental tour - Progress Live saw Take That perform sell-out nights in stadiums across the country.
Not only did they take on performing in the biggest stadiums in the county but they enjoyed an eight-night residency at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium and London’s Wembley Stadium. Progress Live was the biggest UK tour and landed on Billboard’s Top 25 Tours list.
Take That – The three piece
After their Progress Live tour the group took some time out which saw Gary Barlow take up the role of judge on the X Factor and Robbie Williams return to his solo career.
During 2012 the band were honoured with the Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution To British Music and they went on to perform at the Olympics’ closing ceremony. This time without Robbie. Their final performance as a five-piece was during 2012 at the Music Industry Trust Award.
Take That started recording their seventh album in 2014. However, during September Jason Orange announced his departure from the band. The now three-piece continued recording together and released their lead track, These Days, the following month. Take That’s seventh album is fittingly named III.
