CONFIRMED: Take That Announce New Tour As A Trio
And then there were three...
Take That have announced that they will kick off a new European tour in April 2015 as a three piece.
Following the departure of Jason Orange and confirmation that Robbie Williams will not be appearing with the band, the remaining member Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald will perform a total of 24 concerts across eight arenas next year.
Take That will play Belfast's Odyssey Arena May 4th and 5th, and Dublin's 3Arena May 8th and 9th.
"We've always been very proud of our live shows and are very excited to be touring again next year", a statement issued by the band said.
"Playing live is something we love the most about what we do and we're looking forward to putting on the most amazing show we can.
"It will have been four years since our last tour so we're really keen to get back out on the road to play some of our biggest songs from the last 20 years alongside our new ones. We hope to see you there".
Former X Factor star Ella Henderson will support the band on their tour.
Tickets will go on sale on Thursday, November 13th at 9am.
The band revealed the video for their first single as a trio These Days last week and is the first track taken from their brand new studio album aptly titled III, which will go on sale on December 1st.
