HAVE you got a ticket for An Audience With Take That?
If you have, you’re in an elite minority. Even some top celebs are having problems getting their hands on one.
For the first time in its history, the ITV1 show – to be broadcast on Saturday December 2 – will be screened live.
Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Howard Donald are also performing two songs at the Royal Variety Performance, recorded two days later.
And today they were guests on The Paul O’Grady Show, singing their new single Patience, which is out on CD next Monday but available to download now.
When I interviewed the lads last year, on the day they announced their comeback tour, they really weren’t sure if anyone would want to buy tickets for the stage shows.
“There might be 10 people at the MEN Arena – and they’ll be our families,” Gary told me.
Changing tack, I ventured that if the live shows were a success, surely they’d make an album of brand new tracks?
“Being on tour is one thing, but making an album is a completely different animal. It’s hard to rule anything out, but that’s a long way away,” replied Gary.
The new album – Beautiful World – is released on Nov 27 and includes a track called Mancunian Way.
As Gary told Paul today, it looks like Take That really are back for good.
“What’s been so exciting about doing a record is that we’re trying to do things for the first time, this time, and make it fun and exciting.
“We’ve booked a studio and we’ve been in writing together. It’s been a great experience.”
