Take That celebrate 30 years with Greatest Hits UK tour (2019)

Take That

Story by Jack Foley

2019 marks Take That’s 30th Anniversary, so to celebrate this milestone, the band have announced a massive UK arena and stadium tour performing all their much loved greatest hits live.

The tour will see the band play shows in many towns and cities that they have never played before. Plus, they will be joined by special guest Rick Astley.

Take That have also confirmed the release of Odyssey, a re-imagined greatest hits album that takes the listener on a journey through the incredible musical history of one of the UK’s most successful bands of all time.

Ahead of the Album release, fans will get a taster of what’s to come when the band release Pray (Odyssey Version) on September 21, to coincide with their UK Tour announcement.

The Odyssey album – produced by Stuart Price – kicks off celebrations on November 23 and features 27 tracks spanning three decades of the band’s history from their 1992 debut Take that and Party, right up to the present day.

The album will also feature a host of special guests as well as three new tracks. The full track listing will be revealed at a later date.

Odyssey is both a celebration of Take That’s past and present, an emotional journey through all their incarnations. The album is peppered with soundbites from their life, building a historical narrative around the songs – the story of five Northern teenage lads, who went on to become one of the biggest boy bands of all time, before splitting up and reforming again nine years later.

The accompanying tour dates will see the band playing throughout April, May and June 2019 and includes six nights at London’s O2 Arena.
