Take That 2019 UK Stadium and Arena Tour

Take That 2019 UK Stadium and Arena Tour

Take That celebrate 30 years with Greatest Hits Live 2019 UK arena and stadium tour, as well as the release of ‘Odyssey’, their greatest hits re-imagined plus 3 brand new tracks, due for release on 23rd November 2018. 

2019 marks Take That’s 30th Anniversary. To celebrate their milestone, the band have announced a massive UK arena and stadium tour performing all their much-loved greatest hits live. The tour will see Take That play shows in many towns and cities that they have never played before plus they will be joined by special guest, Rick Astley. 

Take That have also confirmed the release of ‘Odyssey’ a re-imagined greatest hits album that takes the listener on a journey through the incredible musical history of one of the UK’s most successful bands of all time. Ahead of the Album release, fans will get a taster of what’s to come when the band release ‘Pray (Odyssey Version)’ on 21st September to coincide with their UK Tour announcement.

‘Odyssey’ is both a celebration of Take That’s past and present, an emotional journey through all their incarnations. The album is peppered with soundbites from their life, building a historical narrative around the songs - the story of five Northern teenage lads, who went on to become one of the biggest boy bands of all time, before splitting up and reforming again nine years later with one of the most sensational music comebacks ever seen. “The story is, if you think about it’ said Howard, ‘quite mad.’ ‘We wanted to tell the tale of the band,’ said Mark, ‘the history of what happened to us. If you only ever own one of them, this should be the definitive Take That record.’

The 2 CD album is a mix of their all-time biggest hits and some brilliantly ‘reimagined’ versions of Take That classics, with exciting new arrangements and production with some tracks being rebuilt from scratch. ‘Some have been reworked, but without spoiling what people loved about them in the first place.’ said Gary.’You’ve got to be respectful, but at the same time, you’ve got to let the ambition of doing something new and refreshed come through as well.’

One thing Take That have never been is predictable, from the themes of the albums, to the epic productions around their live shows. ‘Odyssey’ is yet another lense through which fans can enjoy the band’s most successful work that has helped them achieve six No.1 albums and sell over 45 million records across 30 years. Their longevity and ability to create relevant, timeless pop music has taken Take That to the summit of British pop music, and ‘Odyssey’ will celebrate their place as the one of the world’s greatest ever bands.
