  • Review: Take That at Hyde Park, London

    Take That make their Hyde Park debut and still manage to thrill after 25 years in the game



    Take That have enjoyed a glorious career spanning 25 years and they are well-known for their spectacular, record-breaking concerts - but this is the first time that they have ever played in London's historic Hyde Park.

    And what a show it is.

    The clouds drift away to make way for cheerful sunshine almost as soon as the show starts with a hair-raising rendition of Nessun Dorma by an opera singer and classical pianist.

    There are cheers, but the 65,000 people are here to see Manchester's much-loved man band at a gig that's part of the Barclaycard presents British Summer Time series.

    Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen appear as instantly familiar anthem Greatest Day rings out across the park, followed by the rousing Get Ready For It.


    We're showered with confetti and the always-endearing Mark tells us with a big grin that he has been so excited about the concert - their first major show in the UK since their sell-out arena tour last year - he hasn't slept for three days.

    And the Oldham lad adds to the charm by disclosing that he had never even been to London before he joined Take That.

    Howard shocks us with the revelation that Patience - their comeback single after they split in 1996 - is now 10 years old. Then they roll back the years even further with their 1993 number one hit Pray. The lads, particularly Mark with the same hip swivelling dance moves and flicky curtains of long hair from back in the day, hardly seem any older at all.

    They go walkabout to meet their adoring fans who cross generations, then woo us with a smoother, more suave-sounding A Million Love Songs and before pulling out a massive Lulu-shaped surprise.

    A string of different guest singers have acted as her stand-in over the years, but this time the Scottish belter steps up herself to join Take That on their 90s mega-hit Relight My Fire. And the crowd love it.

    The party continues with even more confetti as they have us jumping to Cry, their banging new hit with dance duo Sigma, who also join them on stage. And the vocals from Gary Barlow have never sounded better.

    The show draws to a close with their arm-raising, singalong classic Never Forget as fireworks explode above. And they can be assured that we never will.

    Next year they head to Las Vegas to mark 25 years of success. If this is a taste of what's to come then fans at their residency are in for a treat.

  • Take That are taking up a residency in Las Vegas in 2017

    A number of musicians and bands have undertaken residencies in Las Vegas, from Elton John to Celine Dion to Cher and most recently, Britney Spears.

    Now, it seems like Take That are set to follow in their footsteps as it's been confirmed that the Manchester boyband manband have signed a deal for a residency in the city of vice.

    The boyband, who are now down to a trio, never quite managed to crack the States - but they'll be hoping that after 25 years in the business, this Vegas residency will boost their profile. 

    The Sun broke the story, quoting a source that said: "Vegas promoters believe Take That put on such a great spectacle that they can deliver in Vegas. Brits are bound to lap up seeing them on foreign soil but there’s also hope the band will attract a completely new fanbase from abroad."

    Now, Gary Barlow has confirmed that they'll start playing Vegas in summer 2017.

    At their end of her time working with Take That, who will perform a concert in London’s Hyde Park today, Tally presented the lads with a photo album with a collection of her photos to keep as a momento.

    At the launch of her new acamemy Pro Makeup Academy in Lydgate, with with pal Collette Casey, she said: “I was like their mum. I took headache tablets to them when they needed them and ironed their clothes.

    “They were gorgeous, divine and wonderful to work with.”

    Last summer Take That, who reunited in 2005, are now a three-piece following the departure of Jason Orange in 2014 and Robbie Williams, who left in 1995 but rejoined them in 2010 for the Progress album and tour.

    They are now celebrating their 25th anniversary following a string of huge hits including Pray, Patience and Rule The World.
