Take That announce Wonderland Live tour
Pop trio Take That are back for good, again, having announced a massive UK tour for May and June 2017.
Teasers were posted on their social media pages and website prior to this week’s announcement including a depiction of the band’s logo flickering with the hashtag #WONDERLAND.
The highly anticipated tour comes in support of their eighth studio album of the same name, due for release on 17 March 2017. Gary Barlow stated in an interview with The Sun, that a fifth greatest hits album is also in the works to commemorate the band’s 25th anniversary.
The band have divulged that the upcoming tour will be a unique experience, and extra special and memorable for fans due to their plan to put the stage in the center of the arena floor.

Once the biggest boy band of the 90’s – known for their pop classics Relight My Fire, Never Forget, Back For Good and Everything Changes – the five lads from Manchester have gone from strength to strength. Following their split in 1996, and subsequent reformation in 2005, the band have continued to release chart topping hits like Patience, Shine, Rule The World and Greatest Day as a band, as well as pursuing solo projects, including Barlow’s role as a judge on X Factor and Robbie’s solo career.
Could it be Magic?
After the exciting announcement that a fifth Take That Greatest Hits album is set for release in 2017, in honour of the band’s 25th anniversary, the rumour mill has been fired up with gossip that former members Robbie and Jason may return for the occasion.
Since the departure of Jason Orange – and second departure of Robbie Williams – in 2014, Take That have continued successfully as a trio. However, Gary, Mark and Howard have always retained that former members can return if they ever want to. Fans are hopeful that the upcoming anniversary plans will spark a full reunion of the original line-up.
