Take That have today announced their return down under with a huge live tour set for October and November 2024
Take That are renowned for their huge productions and incredible live shows, and currently hold the record for the most performances at London’s The O2 with a stunning 34 headline shows. 2011’s Progress tour broke box office records by selling over 1 million tickets in less than 24 hours, becoming the biggest tour in the UK and earning them a place on Billboard’s annual ‘Top 25 Tours’ list, placing third worldwide. In 2019, the band celebrated their 30th anniversary with the 38-date sell-out Odyssey tour which saw them play to 29 arenas and 9 stadiums, selling over 650,000 tickets.
Fans will undoubtedly rejoice as the band returns to Australia for their first shows since 2017, and with fellow pop icon Sophie Ellis-Bextor joining the tour as a very special guest on all dates. Local star Ricki-Lee will take a break from her hosting duties on Australian Idol and Nova Drive, to join Take That’s a day on the green winery shows.
Following the renaissance of her early-2000’s hit ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’, pop legend Sophie Ellis-Bextor will join Take That on their Australia tour. Rising to prominence with her feature on DJ Spiller’s 2000 track ‘Groovejet’, Sophie quickly became a household name following the release of her double platinum debut album Read My Lips. Now in 2024, ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’ is in the spotlight once again, racing up the charts following its inclusion in the epic final scene of Emerald Fennell’s recently released and much talked about film Saltburn. The track was last month covered by Australia’s own Royel Otis for triple j’s Like A Version, and will be released on limited edition 7” red vinyl for the first time on 16 February (Polydor/Universal Music).
