After much teasing, rumours and anticipation, Take That have finally confirmed a new UK and Ireland tour for 2017, ‘Wonderland Live’.
Gary Barlow, Mark Owen and Howard Donald will tour the UK and Ireland during May and June, with girlband All Saints as support. The 22-date tour will take in eight arenas across the UK, as well as two stadiums. The tour kicks off in Newcastle on May 8, before visiting Glasgow, Dublin, Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield and Birmingham. The tour will then continue at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium, before finishing off at Norwich’s Carrow Road Stadium on June 16.

The tour will support their new album Wonderland, which is due for release on March 17. This is the first time that fans will see the band perform brand new material from the forthcoming album, as well as their much-loved classics.
Take That are renowned for their spectacular live shows, and from the tour name alone, we’re expecting something boundary-pushing from the trio. It has already been confirmed that for the first time ever, the band’s main stage will be in the centre of the arena floor, giving fans a truly unique and memorable experience like never before.
