Take That Tickets For Sale

Updated on April 28, 2012

Take That tickets for sale is currently one of the top googled searches, and with one million tickets sold in the first day it is not hard to see why. Currently on Ebay Take That tickets are being sold at £14.999.99 for a V.I.P Suite and two reserved seats are being sold for £1,500. Although i did go on ticket and they were selling tickets for upper tier seating at between £115 to £125 depending on the venue. But why is the tour so popular? Two words, Robbie Williams.

Take That were first formed in Manchester in 1990 the band members are Gary Barlow, Robbie Williams, Mark Owen, Howard Donald and Jason Orange. The lads became the biggest Boy Band in the UK and broke many music records with their singles and Albums and of course ticket sales for their tours.

They had their first Number 1 with 'Everything Changes' which was followed by 'Pray, Relight my Fire and Sure' which all went in at number one too. Their biggest hit single was 'Back for Good' that went to Number 1 in 31 countries, and has been covered a massive 89 times.

In 1995 the boys released their album 'Nobody Else' which was the last album to be recorded by all five of them, before Robbie Williams announced he would be leaving the band. Take That carried on their success with just the four remaining singers and Robbie enjoyed a successful solo career.

In July 2010 it was announced that Robbie was returning to the band after fifteen years. Robbie had met up with the rest of the band at Mark Owens stag do and then announced on his website that he was releasing a single with former band mate Gary Barlow. The pairs single called 'Shame' was released last month.

All five band members wrote their new song 'Flood' which they performed last night on The X factor, this was the first time the lads had performed together for fifteen years, and Robbie said "It's absolutely magical".

The boys proved they were still just as popular when they announced their 'Progress Live 2011 Tour' and one million tickets were sold meaning the boys had smashed their own box office record back when they did The Circus Live Tour back in 2008. Massive demand for the tickets caused phone lines and websites across the country to jam as ticket agents struggled to cope with the number of people trying to buy tickets. Thousands of fans also camped out overnight outside the stadium box offices to ensure they were amongst the first to secure tickets for the band's highly anticipated tour next year.

Two shows have now been added which include

City of Manchester- Saturday 11th June 2011

Wembley Stadium- Saturday 9th June 2011
