Take That set for Cork gig

Fans of '90s boybands should save the date of 20 June 2024, as Take That have announced that they will kick off their European Tour in Cork next summer.

The Manchester trio, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, and Howard Donald, are set to make a comeback with their new outdoor show called This Life Under The Stars, and Musgrave Park is set to be the tour's opening night.

The European leg of the tour will begin in Cork, and from there the band will perform in Dublin and Belfast before heading to Germany, Denmark, Hungary, Switzerland, Italy and Spain, bringing the tour to a close in Porto, Portugal on 19 July.

Presale tickets will be released on Wednesday 18 October, while the general sale is scheduled for Thursda 19 October, through Ticketmaster. Fans can sign-up for the presale through MCD promoters.

Take That are renowned for their huge productions and live shows, and 2011’s Progress tour sold over 1 million tickets in less than 24 hours.

In 2019, the band celebrated their 30th anniversary with the Odyssey tour which saw them play to 29 arenas and 9 stadiums, selling over 650,000 tickets.

Take That are also releasing their ninth studio album 'This Life', on 24 November, their first album since 2017’s 'Wonderland'.

The group was formed in Manchester in 1990 and has maintained a huge following and loyal fanbase for over thirty years. Originally, Jason Orange and Robbie Williams were also part of the lineup.

However, Williams left the band under a cloud of controversy in 1995. The remaining four members released one last single, before breaking up in 1996, shattering the hearts of teenage girls worldwide as they bid farewell and bowed out of pop stardom..

In 2006, the band reformed and achieved new success as a four-piece, scoring a string of chart hits across the UK and Europe while selling over 45 million records worldwide. Williams rejoined Take That in 2010 for the band's sixth studio album, 'Progress'. Jason Orange left in 2014 but Take That have continued to delight fans as a three-piece.
